KAL february lady sweater

I started a new project, a knit a long for a february lady sweater based on Elizabeth zimmermanns february baby sweater. So I have cast on and worked up to the 2nd buttonhole but now there appears to be a glitch with the pattern so we are all on hold whilst it is clarified :0)
I am knitting in a deep mossy green in Clinker which calls itself an 8 ply but works up at 18 stitches to 4 inches so I think that makes it a worsted-lol THis is a stash buster as I have way overspent on wool and no more was being spent for ANY project in the near future anyways! I am being good until the Bendigo wool show :0) Where I expect to be bad!
