This pattern has some oddities. The side fronts are not mirror image of each other. There are no photos of the back, but it is equally un-symmetrical. To me, that looks weird. I can’t help but think that this was an obvious choice on the part of the designer, but I do not like the way it looks. So I reworked the charts so that I get the symmetrical look that makes me happy.

I note that the directions for the right side front just sort of stop as soon as they tell you to start shaping the neck. There’s two more paragraphs of instruction for the left front. The intent may have been for the directions to say to work as for the left front reversing all shaping (which I personally think is sort of lazy pattern-writing), but it doesn’t even say that, so I have to think this is an editorial glitch.
