One thought on “Sage Jacket

  1. I’m having a hard time figuring out if I am doing the lower patt right. 

    Is it me or is there a mistake in the Dc/FPdc stitch guide?

    Here’s how it reads:

    “…. yo and insert hook around post of 3rd dc in group 2 rows below, yo and draw through 2 lps on hook…”

    Shouldn’t it be ? :

    “…yo and insert hook around post of 3rd dc in group 2 rows below, PULL UP LOOP, yo and draw through 2 lps on hook…”

    I could be wrong, I only worked on it for a little while. I’d love to know either way so I can get going on this beautiful sweater. I have been saving some alpaca from Argentina for two years waiting for the perfect pattern.  It is a dark color which does make it a little difficult to see what I am doing though.

    I’m sorry if this is not the right place to post this. I looked for a place to submit corrections or questions and couldn’t find anything else.

    Thanks
