I have purchased the book. Could you tell me where the pattern is for the shawl/wrap on the cover? Thank you!

The Tipperary Sweater, page 59, last sentence under the Left Arm Hole. This sentence states "work as for left front panel arm hole. " There are no instructions I can find for the left front panel armhole hole. Thanks.

P79 Could I just check if the measurements given on the diagram are correct? Should the back section show 24 inches across the bottom and 15.5 inches for the side? Also, is the ribbing made using the smaller hook?

Thank you.

I'm working on the Inisheer sweater wrap and am having difficulties with the honeycomb stitch. The instructions say to work a fpdc, but the video shows a fptc. Should this stitch be a double? Or will the triple make a better looking honeycomb? Thanks, Jill

I am totally confused about how to do the second row of the Celtic Cross. It was initially confusing because in the book the stitch is not listed with the woven stitch on which it begins. Once I had the woven stitch in place, the first row of the cross went reasonably well, but I can't figure out the directions for the second row. I can't find a video demonstrating it among your stitches. Can you help?

Hi, I'm making the Aran Diamonds cardigan and am really confused with the sleeves. I am following the indtructions to the letter, my row stitches count correctly but my finished sleeve looks nothing like the traditionally and expected shape as in the assembly diagram shows. There is no "rounding" at the shoulder, it simply slopes down two sides. Why would there be a decrease at the cuff, and why a decrease at the shoulder.....and why on only one side? I feel like I am going crazy, and so hoped to have it finished for Christmas..... I have included my email address in the hope you will contact me directly and put me on the right path, but would appreciate if you would kindly remove my email address from public viewing, thanks so much. I love the pattern other than this mega-glitch!

Duh, after spending ages on this, finally posting my oroblem, two minurptes later I realize my error. I did not do the next step to work rows 30-48 to complete sleeve. Sorry!

Doing row 4 of the knockarea kind wrap, I do not have enough stitches to do the stitches in parentheses 3 times. I double and triple counted my initial row 1 DC and I have the correct number. Is there anything I am missing. If I do the parentheses 3 times, I end the row with a fptr behind, and cannot continue with the work outside of the parentheses.

I am working on your Inisheer Sweater Wrap. It is going great. After row #18 it seems to be gathering or pulling in. I am sure I am following the directions. Any ideas or tips?

I have just finished your Gaithersburg Stole. I recommend that you publish 2 corrections. First it needs 5 full skeins of yarn, I did use Caron Simply Soft, also your recommendation for cutting a piece of cardboard 10" is incorrect, it should be 12". This discrepancy resulted in me cutting almost half of the necessary yarn for the fringe making me need to buy a 6th skein.

I am working on your Gaithersburg Stole. Is there a mistake in the directions for the number of Cables made
at the end of Row 4? The directions say 70 cables made. Mine will be coming out to 60.
Please e-mail me your response. I have watched your You Tube video on Cables so I do believe I'm doing
it correctly. Thanks.
