I'm trying this pattern and have a few questions if anyone can answer them.

I am also needing help! I have started and taken this project apart no less than 5 times. I can't seem to figure out where the next stitch is that follows the FPdc or maybe I'm not FPdcing in the correct stitch? Thoughts?

I noticed that while the patterns expects the WA and WB cables to be continuous, as written the pattern instructs to work until the shaping cable, then transition to the fpdc segment and then repeating thru the row. That effectively eliminates the WB cable, if that wording is followed. (Instructions on the All sizes, Next Row Right side line)

I wanted this cardigan so badly!  I have never in my life encountered such a difficulty-written pattern.  I am an expert crocheter and have successfully completed some DOOZIES in my 41 years of crocheting.  But this one........after taking it apart 4 times i decided that was enough for me.  No reason this should be as difficult as it is written.

I love the look of this sweater but I have started at least 15 times (I am a persistant fool).  I now have almot 5 inches and have rewritten the pattern as the numbers are wrong.  One should be more careful when publishing a pattern for puplic use.  I plan to finish it with the help of the above photos.
