2018-12-31 : size LARGE has been updated. Thank you!
I like this sweater pattern. It has modern look. I took it to my queue to knit :)
I wanted to give an update since I can't edit: the designer has been incredibly responsive and released an update pretty quickly after asking about the problems, and the update clears up the problems with that size. I'm on my way now - though I am not pleased with my float catching (some are too loose) and am going to pull out my first two rounds and try out the woven floats technique, which is my issue not a problem with the pattern! ;-)
Free earns an extra star; unfortunately the large has a lot of math errors - as written it cannot be properly followed. There are also other smaller math errors in the some of the other sizes, too. The finished sweater is quite nice, and I think I've worked out modifications that'll let me knit it right, but I'm not 100% certain of the outcome of my changes.
Love the pattern! Hope to get to it in the New Year.
