Why knit sweaters from the top down? The main advantage is that you can try the sweater on as you go and make decisions about customising the sweater to your exact fit as you go. Try the sweater on after the yoke to make sure it's the right length. If it's too long or too short, then change it before you divide for the sleeves. The sleeves and body are both worked in the round and it's a good idea to try the sweater on before you cast off to make sure the body and sleeves are the right length.
This sweater has 3/4 length sleeves but if you'd like longer sleeves, just keep knitting. You may want to work a few more decreases as you knit down the sleeve. Remember if you make the sweater longer you will need more yarn.
Errata is every designers worst nightmare and I do apologise for the errata in this pattern. Let's Knit will print the errata in the next issue but in the meantime if you're knitting this pattern here are the changes:
There is an issue with round 11 of the chart - see chart notes below. From round 17 I had to change things so I've copies the new correct chart below.
The green square means - refer to chart notes (Chart notes - rounds 10, 12, 14, 28, 30, 32 and 34: K to end, k1. Start next round here. On round 16: K to last stitch. Start next round here).
There was also a correction to the back neck shaping which is listed on the Ravelry page.
If you've already started Gentle Whisper and had problems then I apologise. If you've yet to start it, print out the new chart (which I've added as a photo on the Ravelry pattern listing) and chart notes.
