Modifications:  Collar pattern modified, sleaves are full long sleaves.


The collar patten did this weird thing where the cable went over different stitchs then in the body.  For Janette’s and Tina’s sweater I modified the collar pattern so that the cross was where it should be.  Not certain why the designer did it the way they did, it looks absolutly weird and is unnessary, the modification doesn’t really change all that much, besided how it is written.  The change is simple, instead of crossing a k2, p2 under/over a k2, p2 I cross a p2, k2 with a p2, k2 when the cross is suppose to happen.  This lines everything up correctly.


Row 4: Sl 1 knitwise, K2 [(follow like C8L except p2, k2) (like C8R except p2, k2) p2, k2. repeat 7 times, k1.

If need be I can write out the row fully and correctly.
