Where is the link for the cowl neck for this sweater? That too is one of the design portions that drew me to this sweater. It is lovely!

Barbara, at the very top of the pattern, even before the sizes.

Thanks Susan. Much appreciated. Just not looking I guess, or looking too hard!

There shouldn't be any problem with the armholes. 50 rows are counted from row 7 of the front (back).

I love the pattern and want to make it for my daughter but can't get it to print. Yes, I'm using the printable version but all that prints are the pictures. Can you help?

1. For the medium size to make the pattern fit I have cast on 104 stitches. Is this going to cause me a problem when shaping the armholes?
2. where do you count the 50 rows from? a)cast on b)row 1 of pattern c)row 7 of pattern?

Oh, ok, never mind. I found the link for the cowl.

I love this sweater and am definitely going to try to knit it. Question tho'... it looks like the sweater ends with the standard round neck, but your first picture shows something more like a cowl/turtle neck and I don't see anything about that in the instructions. That's what makes the sweater for me, so please let me know which part of the directions pertains to that or where to find it.

I too love the tunic style pattern; however, I am not a fan of garter stitch at all. I wonder whether the same pattern can be provided with a stocking stitch background?

This is a beautiful tunic. I love it. Thank you for sharing your pattern. I also like that you gave several close-up views of the tunic so I can see how it looks from all over.
