Requesting Leaves Jacket size 36-38 conversation

Size 3 needles are for rib only. You should work the rest of the jacket on the needles, which allow you to achieve the correct gauge.

Hi Hoa,

Look for my response on Post #3 to Janet. I have given some information on how to adjust the Leaves Jacket that should be of help.

Also, if you are interested in a chart for the Leaves panel, I have completed it... and feel confident it is 100% correct. My brains are soup from a week long heat wave of 100+ with no AC, so it has been challenging to concentrate. Thank God the heat wave is supposed to break overnight! If you would like a copy of the chart, contact me at Ducky_711 at yahoo dot com and I will be happy to share it with you.

Time to start our swatches!

Can you please send me the instructions for a size 36". I am petite so will need less yarn for the sleeves and length. Thank you.
I look forward to receiving this in due course. The verification code is easy to read - other websites should take note!
With thanks, Carol Cooley (England)

Hi Janet,
If you look at the "printable version" (at the top) it has the cast on for the sizes given. From that you should be able to figure out how many stitches to remove to get your required fit.
If I weren't so busy trying to make a chart for this pattern, I would be doing the same calculations myself right now.
If you don't mind waiting, I will be happy to wade through it with and for you.
Contact me at Ducky_711 at yahoo and let me know what you decide.
Have a great day!

Thanks so much for your response. I would be more than happy to wait if you ever have the time to calculate directions for the smaller pattern (shouldn't there be an "app" for that!!--ha ha!) I'm sure there are alot of knitters out there who would like the smaller size. Thanks again, Janet

Hello Ladies,

The chaos of life has kept me from finishing the chart for the Leaves Jacket. I should have it finished sometime soon, and will post again to let you know I have it finished.

In the meantime, here is some information about changing the size of the Leaves Jacket for you to work with until I return.

If you are interested in creating your own

Dear Amazing Sweater Creator!

I've just found this pattern, and YES it's exactly what I've been looking for for SO long! It's just perfect, and very beautiful. I would love to knit it using different shades of green...

The posts I read were all from a year ago. Please tell me this is still available, and that you are still available to respond to queries?
I need the sweater in a size small, or perhaps even extra small; I usually wear a size 4. And please may I request whatever additional charts and explanations you might have added to your original online piece?

I will be forever your one of your most grateful fans,

Thank you so very much,
Santa Rosa, CA

A thought: add pocket(s) leaving off part of leaves on cardi and adding that section to the pocket(s).

XL is the size below 2X, correct?? I wear a 40C bra and just wonder the size needed.

This is really a lovely cardi. TY!

There is an error on the leaves jacket pattern page. Size 3 needles are 3.25 mm, not 3.0 mm

I am committed to making this lovely sweater for myself. I am a 3x size. I needed to use size nine needles to get the gauge right instead of the size 3. I finished the ribbing and notice that now I am to switch to a size 9 needle....? Please advise.

Did this ever get re-sized below a large size--I noted the re-sizing questions were a year old, so am hoping.

Hi is it possible to write the mirror pattern for the right side for the leaves pattern and the right side. It would be a great help. I love this pattern and would like to knit one for myself. Also if you could guide how many stitches to cast on for a medium and large size. Thanks Vasanti

Can this pattern be adjusted to a smaller size? It is such a pretty sweater, but much to large for me.

I would have liked this pattern much more if it was charted. Having to read every word is so tedious.
