  1. I’ve downloaded the pattern, and I think I understand it. I know there’s no video, but is the photo tutorial available? When I used the link from the pattern, it came up with an error page.

    I can’t wait to try this! Thanks for so much help!!

  2. Hi Amanda – thank you for the note, and the head’s-up! Looks like when we updated the website, the photo tutorial was lost. I’m going to do my best to see if I can find it and get it back up. Thanks again for the note!

  3. Just a quick set of questions. When the pattern says to knit or purl both colors, I’d put he needle thru the two-colored loop and use both colors to wrap the needle correct? Like in your doubling the yarn video? And then return to whichever color come next in the sequence?

    Thanks so much!

  4. Hello again, I’ve got another set of questions for you 🙂

    Since I’ve only ever knit in the round, how do I use the circular needles to knit flat? Do you have a quick tutorial for this? And for the yarn amounts, am I reading the pattern correctly that I’ll need 220 yards of each color? And I’ll wind the smaller balls from those 220 yds? And did your snap closures work with this sweater? Do you have any recommendations for the closure?

    Thanks for answering these seemingly ‘dumb’ questions from a newbie knitter 🙂


  5. Thought of another question for you 🙂

    Can I pick up the number of stitches for the hood from the cast on row of the main sweater? I saw this in one of your other sweater videos, but I’m not sure if it’s work with this one.

    Thank you again,

  6. Hello again,

    With the sweater starting at 71 stitches and the hood at 65, how should I seam them together or pick up stitches? Or does the hood center along the back of the sweater, not meeting the front corners of the body?

    Thanks again,
