Rose Trellis Cardigan

Altering a pattern is not my thing but have decided that I did not want to do this sweater the "Norwegian" way. If I am going to cut the armholes, I want to have a steek. Also a slightly inset sleeve fits me better than a drop shoulder and I prefer to knit the sleeve down............ so, I have taken 15 stitches off to a holder and am decreasing 1 stitch each side of the armhole 10 times. That will bring me back to the same pattern at the edge of the armhole and "should" work. Time will tell. It's an easy pattern to remember

This view shows the pattern running up the side seam which will continue on the underarm of the sleeve.
