Here are a few pointers to make knitting this pattern go smoothly.
- Checking your row-gauge is important. Unlike other patterns, the row-gauge is as important as the stitch-gauge.
- The buttonholes are worked as a one-row buttonhole. As discussed in the notes, the M2 instruction needs to be
worked as a backwards-loop cast-on (or a cable cast-on), rather than as a raised-bar increase.
- The yardage requirements were based on test-knitting each size, with 5% to 10% added for a ``safety margin.''
- Several folks who have knit the pattern used a contrasting, solid color yarn to knit cuffs, collar, and waistband.
Doing so for the cuffs and collar is trivial, but changing the color of the waistband requires a few changes.
- Work 8 fewer ridges on the gusset panels.
- Omit the first and last 8 sts on the sides, front, and back, but continue to slip the first st of each row.
- Pick-up and knit 3 sts in each pair of slipped sts in the contrasting color and work either a garter-ridge band
or work ribbing.
- Another delightful variation replaces the cuff ribbing with garter ridges.
