Pattern description from Knitting for Dummies: โ€œThis is a cozy jacket to wear on autumn walks or when the thermostat doesnโ€™t kick in (see it featured in the color insert). You can forget the pockets if you donโ€™t want to bother with them. Iโ€™ve given the instructions in the standard way, with lengths measured in inches. But Iโ€™ve also given you the number of rows to knit for each piece. If you knit by the row method, you wonโ€™t have to figure out where to put the buttonholes - Iโ€™ve already done that for you. (Of course, if your row gauge is different from mine, your sweater and sleeves may be a bit shorter or longer than the length given in the pattern.) Iโ€™ve also included a chart of the left neckline shaping. If you find it comforting to work from a graph, you may want to chart out the right front piece so that you can track where you are and when to work each buttonhole. Figure 18-4 shows the schematic of the piece youโ€™ll be making.โ€
