      Looks great! I'm contemplating this pattern, but I'm not sure about the sizing. The measurements seem huge. How did you decide what size to make?

      Hello. Your jumper looks wonderful. I'm knitting it too, but am confused by the pattern. I've just finished the front and am reading ahead to where it says 'Join the shoulders, linking the lines of blocks.' As the blocks aren't cast off, are they grafted in? Argh :(

        Thank you!

        Honestly I think I just cast off the stitches and then sewed the blocks together. I had no idea what to do and just kind of made it up as I went along. I'm sorry I can't be of more help.

      Your jumper looks fabulous! I admire your learn entrelac pattern - my learn entrelac is a scarf!!
      The scarf is knitting up well but is giving a much 'bubblier' appearance than I expected. It has put me off knnitting this jumper as I don't want to look like the michelin man. Does it block to a flatter silhouette and stay flatter?

        Thank you!!!!! I didn't block it so I don't know. It didn't knit up as bubbly as a scarf I started at the same time. I think the difference might have been the difference in the yarns and also the blocks in this sweater are groups of 4 and I think my scarf is groups of 10. Also my tension was much tighter with this sweater than anything else I've ever knit, so maybe that's why it's not so bubbly.
