I love this tunic. Yes, the pattern is a pain and just plane written wrong. You really have to work with the photo. I ended up knitting the entire piece backwards, or inside-out and got the results in the photo. The end result is perfect. I am making it again (now that I can go off the backwards chart). I will also make it a little smaller. For me, making it 10" larger than my personal measurements is a little extreme. This finished piece stretches as well. I love it and do get plenty of complements. I also have a photo that shows more than the model photo but have no means of posting.

This pattern was difficult to start and I frogged several times; but then I read a few tips by the author and it's been a breeze since then. Just make sure to note that you start on Row 1, WHICH IS A WRONG SIDE ROW, and as such is worked LEFT TO RIGHT. And since knitting flat, Row 2 is read right to left, etc.
I only have a couple rows of the back left to knit and it's a very pretty piece so far. The laddering, lace, etc. have turned out very pretty.

If you want a sweater that you'll frog many times due to sizing issues, where the center panel doesn't look like the photo, beyond poorly written/charted instructions and more frustration than should be allowed - buy this one. If you still buy it anyway - read the pattern at least 15 times, all notes and chart notes, see that the chart lines are not as with most charts, be prepared to make your own spreadsheet, and a headache. I love to knit lace, but this has not been fun.

This is a lovely photo. However, the chart is almost impossible to use as directed. I can't count the times I started and restarted, then realized I was simply not knitting that garment. I had to frog almost the entire back, analyze what was wrong, and start again -- two more times before I figured out that I needed to go the opposite direction on the chart. Now it seems to be working, except that the laddered faggoting still doesn't look at all like the picture. The design team that put this together needs to actually knit it from that chart.
