        Comments about Madelinetosh Creature Comforts Cardi PDF:

        The gauge and the number of skeins used matched the pattern recommendations. Unfortunately, I will be ripping the whole thing out and hoping to salvage the expensive yarn I used to make it because the fit is so odd. It is basically a knitted square folded in half. Sleeves and pockets are awkwardly placed. The Oak Leaf pattern on the back is, however, beautiful.

        Not at all accurate!

        Comments about Madelinetosh Creature Comforts Cardi PDF:

        This pattern is not accurate. It calls for 6 skeins for a size medium but in fact requires 10. The pattern states that it knits up in a loose weave with size 8 needles which is also untrue. In order for this yarn to knit up in a loose weave you would have to use size 10 needles. Fortunately I used a yarn that doesn't have a dye lot or I would have had to junk the whole thing.
