Thank you for the heads-up. I just received my pattern and am looking forward to making one. I would have been so frustrated. I appreciate your post.

Thanks Belinda - I am hoping to make this one up soon. Thanks again for finishing this garment and review I will be following your advice on the shoulders and sleeves (I think we may be similar body shapes, except for the fba - which I definitely don't need!)

Thanks for posting this. This is a good example of how one person can make a pattern (I did) and not even notice the errors to put in their review.

This is my current favourite pattern. I'm working on my 4th variation of it now, and until reading this, had never given any thought to the top of the pleats. You are correct, they dont line up properly. I've always just wacked that bit off with the overlocker after I've sewn all the pleats. I have never noticed the hem inconsistencies. I glanced at the printed off instructions the first time I made it, but I tend to size hems to suit myself rather than go by the pattern. I cant wait to see your Jalie cardi, I'm sure it will as gorgeous as all your other creations :o)

Thanks for this. I made my first one of these a few weeks ago. Did not notice the errors but recall overlocking off the protruding piece at the shoulder. Just cut out my second one, a lighter weight knit for summer, will look at the hem instructions a bit closer. Great pattern, really pleased with my first cardigan.

Thanks Belinda, I have printed off your comments too. I have some lovely fine merino I am hoping to make up soon.

Brilliant - thanks for the heads up regarding the instructions and sleeve draft. This pattern is waiting in an ever increasing queue for me to trace of and make. Like the fabric that you have used

The more I see this pattern done up the more I love it! It looks great and interesting tips. It is too bad they don't fix it and the symetrical sleeves is something to think about if I get the pattern. Love them all, yours looks very nice.

Thanks for the review, Belinda. I've got this one in my must-sew list for this winter. I'm printing out your review now and putting it with my pattern.

Thank you for all the information you put in your review. It is so very helpful and I love your version of this cardi!

Thanks for pointing out the error. We updated the PDF instructions on our website and made the correction on the pattern file for the next reprint. Step 14 should read: "Fold lengthwise, right sides together, and stitch across both ends (fig. 14), 1 cm (3/8) from edge." Steps 15 and 17: 2 cm (3/4'') is the correct distance/hem allowance.

This is really attractive. Your fabric choice really shows the pleats very nicely.

Jalie should hire you to test their patterns. After your head scratching and hard work, you have a very nice cardi.

Belinda - a great review as usual. I really like this pattern and your rendition of it. Hugs Maree PS not sure if you can have a rendition of a pattern but it sounded good at the time. :-)

Thanks for the heads up on the shoulders and sleeves being so small, and i love the fabric you used. I used the same fabric in a Sandra Betzina cardi and it is so comfy to wear, yours looks really nice.
