March 2015: I’ve corrected the instructions for the back so that the Box A pattern actually sets up the boxes!

Note regarding yardage:
August 2011: I’ve received a few notes saying that the yardage for the larger sizes should be increased a bit. You may want to pick up an extra ball or two to make sure you have enough to complete the project in a larger size.

October 2010: I have reversed the instructions for the front and back so that your finished sweater will look like the one in the pattern photos. However, there is no actual error here, so if you’re working with the July 2010 version, just keep in mind that you will have a ‘purl vertical stripe’ running up the front of your sweater instead of a knit one, as shown in the photos.
