Well, I bought this pattern and after getting done knitting everything but the arms I unraveled everything. I am not sure how you managed to get the length and everything else in, but nothing looked like the finished product. I am of average height, but the jacket barely would have covered my behind not to say that the shawl that wraps around on the button is not very flattering. I wish I could get my money back in this one.

Would love to purchase this pattern, but can not even log in as a 'guest' on paypal. Any ideas of how I can get around or by pass paypal?

Is this pattern knit in the round?

I purchased this pattern, but have not been able to download. Has anyone else had this issue? It seems that the file (26.5MB) is bigger than Craftsy recommendations. Any suggestions on how to receive this pattern that I've purchased?

Sorry folks, a probably-daft pattern question here; I am working the pattern in size XL, so for Left Front have CO 43 stitches. Armhole shaping as per back (2 x BO 6 sts, then dec 1 st x 6) gets me to 25 sts, but reading ahead to neck shaping I see to dec 1 st x 15, which should get me to 16 sts, but the maths don't work - I will end up with only 10 stitches to work over the rest of the piece, which will then not work when I get to shape shoulder.
Should I do fewer decreases on neck shaping, and stop at 16 stitches, or have a made a boo-boo somewhere else...?

Hi there, so sorry for the late response but I just saw this comment! I can see the have written above that you BO 6 sts TWICE at the armholes when it should ONLY BE ONCE. When you did the back it was twice because you had to do it for each side of the back but since it is only the Left Front you will BO 6 only once. That will give you the 16 sts after all shaping at the neck is done :) Hope that helped!
