I am stuck on the back...the very beginning of the patten...row 10 says continue sc rows until the piece measure 9 call me, well it already measures 13 call me so I don't get it....does it mean the beginning of the sc rows should be 9 call me or the BEGINNING of the piece? Help

Do you think this is too girly for a boy? I was thinking dark gray or black.

I have tried making this pattern with three med. worsted weight yarns and the scale is always way over the measurments given on row 11+. I really do not understand how the piece is to go from 23 cm in width on row 11+ to 33.5cm on the 3+ row of the "shape the armhole" section. Could you explain this to me in a different way. Thank you. RKD

Oh no! I was in the middle of this pattern and now I can't get it!!! I guess I've learned a lesson: PRINT IT! :) Does anyone have this pattern so I can finish mine? Thank you!

Oh, WOW, taking me back to the good ole days! I had a navy blue pea jacket. Plan on making one for 2 granddaughters. Thank you so much!
