this is a rough recipe. an experienced sweater knitter may have no problem following it, but it is suggested that you read though the sweater and EPS sections of Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Knitting Workshop, specifically the Saddle Shoulder sweater and variations before attempting, especially if you will need to make adjustments in sizing.
the 1$ price is mostly for the work put into the cable charts, especially the oak and acorn charts.
