Errata

Since 2010 all of my patterns are checked by at least one professional tech editor (TE)—and starting in 2016 every pattern has been checked by two TEs—to help minimize errors, but mistakes do still slip by (gads!). As an aside, for some reason I seem to have the most trouble with patterns whose names start with the letters “C” and “G,” and for whatever reason, Spanish Dancer has been a thorn in my side since its birth. Anyway, below is a list of the corrections listed in alphabetic order by pattern name. It’s down there. Don’t worry. Sorry about the scrolling, especially on smaller devices. There’s a lot to cover.

Reading charts

Chart rows are always worked from bottom to top. Unless pattern is knit in the round, all odd numbered chart rows are worked from right to left, and all even numbered chart rows are worked from left to right—in all of my patterns. If pattern is being knit in the round, then all rows are knit from right to left. If chart has sections, A, B, C, etc., then the order the sections are worked on wrong-side rows is opposite that of right-side rows. In other words, if the instructions say to work charts like this, A once, B 5 times, C once, then wrong-side rows are worked like this: C once, B 5 times, A once.

Chart and symbol problems

In earlier versions of my patterns some Macintosh users had trouble with chart symbols—and occasionally other text—showing up as funny little rectangles, especially on downloads before 2009. This most often happened when the pdf file was opened with the Preview application. Instead, right click on the download link. Select “Save Link As” from the menu to save the file to your hard drive. Open the file with the latest version of Acrobat Reader. This should fix the problem. If not, please let me know.

Version numbers

Originally I didn’t include version numbers on any of my patterns. At some point I found that I really needed to. At the bottom of every page of more recent editions of every pattern there is a two part number. All patterns start out at 1.0. Minor pattern errors and formatting tweaks will increase the number to the right of the decimal, e.g., it will go from v1.0 to v1.1. Major pattern errors and big changes in formatting will make the number to the left of the decimal increase, e.g., change from v1.2 to v2.0. As I go through and add the pattern number to the top of page 1 on all printed patterns the second number will go up by one, resulting in a potential version number of 1.1 for something that has had no pattern errors reported.

Reformatting

You may or may not have noticed this, but I’ve redesigned my patterns. Starting in spring 2017, all new patterns will have a new look, and a significant number of previous patterns will be reformatted to share this new look. Any old patterns that get the formatting update will also get a bump in their version numbers. Most of them go from v1.0 to v1.1. If you have a pattern that says it’s v1.1, and you don’t see it’s name in the list below, then I have no errata for it, just a new look.

To go with this, some of the patterns will have a different page count than their printed cousins. All of my printed patterns have an even number of pages, and so I occasionally add a page to the end with extra photos and so forth on it to make things work out. If there is no content on the last page that is pertinent to creating your own version of my design, then I have (sometimes) deleted it. These patterns will otherwise be exactly like their printed cousins. How do you know? The electronic patterns will have an indicator… If you have an electronic pattern, and the version number includes a “-pdf,” that’s how you’ll know. For instance, I just did one that has 4 pages for the printed pattern, and 3 pages for the electronic pattern, and the version number of the electronic pattern is v1.1-pdf. Clear as mud?

The list

The following patterns have errata or bits that knitters have found confusing. If a pattern is not listed below, there is no errata for it. If you believe you have found an error in a pattern that is not listed here, please contact me. As from the beginning of my design career, if you recently purchased a pattern that has errata, then everything (that I know of) will be fixed in that pattern… unless you got hold of an old printed copy. If you bought the pattern a while ago, check for pdf updates where you bought the pattern to get the most current version. If you bought a printed pattern anywhere, and your issue isn’t below, or you’re otherwise confused about anything, please let me know. I will do what I can to help. To reiterate: if you recently bought a pdf online, then that pattern will already include all changes indicated below.

August 25, 2014. I was looking at this pattern over the weekend, because I was in need of one of the stitches, and couldn’t remember how I did it, when I found, to my horror, that I’d swapped the definitions of two of the symbols on the chart key. Gads. It’s easy to fix, however. Simply reverse the definitions for the last two symbols on the key: what’s labeled “RT-p” should be labeled “LT-p,” and what’s labeled “LT-p” should be “RT-p.” I am very sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.
August 19, 2008. The portion of the chart key that shows the cables with the purl stitches is messed up in the original release. The purl stitches are in the correct place, the words are correct, but the diagonal lines are backwards, facing the wrong way.
Huge apologies for all the errors in this pattern. It’s most embarrassing. It has become quite clear that I need even more eyes on patterns than I have had on them lately. This will be fixed in future patterns.

October 7, 2010. There’s a small error in the written instructions, and it’s repeated in three sections: Widening, The Straightaway, Narrowing. Chart D, row 6, of these sections should read: K5, p2.

October 19, 2010. These are mostly quite minor. Mostly.

  • Widening, one stitch marker to be placed on each side of chart C.
  • The Straightaway, the note box should begin, “Not all sts are shown…”
  • At the end of Finish up the Pears, there will be 27 full pears completed, and 22 sts on needle, of which 3 are for chart C.
  • The note in The Final Point should read: “Charts A and C have no sts after row 26; they merge into chart B.”

October 25, 2010. A couple more stitch counts are off. I actually forgot to add in the second pear! Egads.

  • Widening and The Straightaway should both end with 57 sts, 33 of which are for chart C.
  • Narrowing should end with 31 sts, 7 of which are for chart C.

November 3, 2011. It seems I still can’t count. At the end of Narrowing there should be 43 stitches on the needle, 7 of which are for chart C.

March 19, 2014. It was recently brought to my attention that there is some discrepancy between the finished sizes of the sweater on the front page and the apparent size on the schematic. The numbers on the schematic are fine. I don’t know where my brain was when I came up with the numbers for the front page. Front pages size numbers are now updated to reflect the actual sweater sizes. I also made the sweater size/bust size comparison more clear for those who are still confused about how “positive ease” is reflected in a sweater v. person.
November 12, 2009. Something got muddled in the translation, and the symbol for purling on the right side of the fabric is incorrect in the magazine. Another problem with the chart in the magazine: The center section, C, has 14 stitches, but the label along the bottom says 15. 14 is correct. Therefore, the cast on number, 45, is also correct. Please Contact us for a corrected chart, if you have the magazine and want to knit this from the chart.
November 23, 2011. The largest size must have 115 sts on the needle when starting the Border charts. Work the setup row for the large size as follows: k2, (yo, ssk) 27 times, yo, s2-k1-p2sso, yo, (k2tog, yo) 27 times, k2.
November 2, 2011: The written stitch instructions for the Leaf chart on page 2 should read (the charts are fine):

  • row 8: S1, BO 6 sts, p4.
  • row 9: (YO twice, k2tog) twice, k1.
  • and the following need to be broken out:
    —rows 10 – 16. Repeat rows 2 – 8.
    —rows 17 – 24. Repeat rows 9 – 16.
    —rows 25 – 30. Repeat rows 9 – 14.

January 24, 2012: The written stitch instructions for the Leaf charts seem to be problematic. The following are changes to those charts on the indicated pages (the charts are fine):

  • page 2 needs these corrections:
    —row 5: k4, (yo twice, k2tog) twice, k1.
    —row 6: should end with a p4.
    —row 34: should end with a p4.
  • page 3: rows 6, 8, 10, and 12 should all end with purl stitches instead of knit stitches.
  • page 4: rows 6, 8, 10, 12, and 22 should all end with purl stitches instead of knit stitches.
  • page 5: rows 6 and 8 should end with a p4.

January 26, 2012: What with one thing and another, I thought it would be a good idea to have my TE go over these written stitch instructions another time. She found the following. I hope this is the end of it. It should be. Fingers crossed.

  • page 5, Leaf:
    —9-16. Repeat rows 1-8.
    —17-18. Repeat rows 1-2.
    —19. (K2tog, yo twice) twice, k2tog, k1.
    —20. S1, (p2, k1) twice, p1.
    —21. K2tog, k1, (yo twice, k2tog) twice, k1.
    —22. S1, (p2, k1) twice, p2.
    —23. Knit.
    —24. S1, BO 6 sts, p2.

August 16, 2013: I can’t believe that this is the first I heard of this error, but it is. I would have fixed it ages and ages ago. I also can’t believe that my TE and I didn’t catch it when we did the whole raft of changes more than 1½ years ago. But there you have it. We didn’t see it, and no one told me, so it didn’t get fixed then. It’s fixed now. If you have an old version of this pattern, this is what you do to fix it:

  • Page 5, Right Edge. The first paragraph and the setup row are fine. The last paragraph is also fine. Delete everything between “Repeat the following 2 rows” through the instructions for the WS row. Replace all that stuff with this:
    RS and WS rows are worked the same. Repeat the following row until all edge stitches have been used at the end of the last WS row, but 4 sts remain unused (last 4 of the 5 held at end of trefoils) at the end of the final RS row.
    All rows: S1, knit to 1 st before gap, k2tog, k3. Turn.
    Note: Transfer held sts from end of trefoil border onto needle as they are reached.

February 7, 2014, page 5, Right Edge: This is not an error, but more than one person has been confused about this same thing lately, so I thought it best to explain it here. The pattern says to pick up and knit 106 sts along the edge. These are the first 106 edge sts only. Picking up these sts along the edge should put you just past the center point of the shawl. There should be a few less than 106 edge sts remaining to be picked up. The remaining edge stitches will be picked up and knit a few at a time, every other row, as the short rows are worked.
OR
If it would be easier for you to get your brain around, go ahead and pick up and knit ALL of the stitches along the edge, including those held at both ends. To reiterate, grab those provisional sts, pick up one stitch for every slipped stitch along the edge that you worked before, then transfer the held sts at the far end. You’ll have something around 200 sts on the needle (I haven’t done the math for this recently, and don’t have time to look it up). Then knit the 106 sts, k2tog, k3, turn, work the setup row next. From here, work the main shaping repeat until all the stitches are used up from one side, 4 sts are left on the other side, and the rest of the sts are in the middle.

November 12, 2010. Written stitch instructions, first part, line 4 should read (the bold part is the change): *P3, k5, p1, k4, p3; …
May 18, 2015. I am mortified by the number of errors in this pattern. I can’t believe it got out this way. I had it tech edited before originally releasing it. Truly. In spite of that, I kind knitter recently told me about a couple pretty major errors in the pattern, and when I went over the thing I found even more. I had another tech editor go over it again, after I fixed the things I knew about, and she had me fix some additional things. The list is extensive. The main items are these:

  • The row gauge should read 30 rows/4 inches (10 cm).
  • Corner chart 1 should be Corner chart 2, and Corner chart 2 should be corner chart 1.
  • There is no longer room in the pattern for written stitch instructions, so I removed them. Once I fixed Corner 1, writing it all out was beyond me. It would have taken up the entire page. If you rely on written instructions, my humble apologies.

Additional changes are as follows:

  • Sleeve cap for cuff up sleeves. Rows from hem to armhole should read: 68, 72, 76, 78 [82, 86, 90, 94]
  • Neckline. After stitches have been picked up around the edge, the stitch counts are correct. The next paragraph should be replaced with this: Work lace pattern around neckline as follows for all 17 rows: k4, Corner one (charts A, B, and C), Main leaf st (charts B and C) 2, 2, 2, 2 [2, 2, 3, 3] times (left front), Corner two, Main leaf st (charts B and C) 3, 3, 3, 3 [4, 4, 4, 4] times (back neck), Corner two, Main leaf st (charts B and C) 2, 2, 2, 2 [2, 2, 3, 3] times (right front), Corner 1 (charts B and D), k4. 119, 119, 119, 119 [129, 129, 149, 149] sts.
  • Body schematic. Distance from lower border to armhole is the same for every size: 8.5 inches; 21.5 cm
  • Body schematic. Distance from hem to shoulder should read: 17.5, 17.75, 17.75, 18 [18.5, 19.25, 19.75, 20.25] inches; 44.5, 45, 45, 45.5 [47, 49, 50, 51.5] cm
March 3, 2015. A couple different sniggly things have been found and brought to my attention. The corrections are as follows:

  • Taper off, line 8, should begin with s1 pw wyif, like all other WS rows.
  • Continue decreasing, instructions, should tell you to work all 32 rows once.
  • Decrease to the point, instructions, should tell you to work all 21 rows once.
July 19, 2014. The written stitch instructions specify the wrong 2-stitch decrease. Instead, use s2-k1-p2sso, which matches the chart key, and the abbreviations list.
July 6, 2014. Apparently, I updated the file after sending it to press the first time, and neglected to do all the regular things for an update, like publishing an errata page. This oversight was kindly brought to my attention just a few days ago, and applies only to the printed version of the pattern. Other than rearranging the entire second page, it seems I also added shift instructions to the newer version. My humble apologies to anyone who got messed up because of my oversight. If you purchased a PDF version of this pattern online, the correction is already included.

The shift works like this: shift: slip 1 st to right needle, rm, return st to left needle, pm.

June 8, 2014. As any one who knows me well will attest, I frequently say one thing and mean the opposite. That happened here. While the sweater was designed with negative ease, and the pattern said that, the pattern also got one teeny thing wrong. This fixes it: To fit bust up to 2 inches (5 mm) larger than finished sweater (negative ease).
August 11, 2011. We all missed the fact that there was an extra paragraph in the pattern, a left-over from when I wrote it up. I started to do it one way, then changed my mind, and forgot to remove the evidence. Gads. So, just ignore the paragraph that starts out: All sizes: work setup row… This means that after casting on, you: “Work The ends setup row…” I know. Much the same, but the first paragraph has errors in it, as well as being redundant. Sorry about that.
March 3, 2010. There are a few charting issues, reflected also in the written stitch instructions, both of which are corrected as follows:

  • Thistle Part 1, row 27, section C should read: k3, yo, k1, yo, k2, k2tog, k1-yo-k1 in same st, k2
  • Thistle Part 2, row 3, section C should read: k2, yo, k5, k1-yo-k1 in the same st, k2
  • Thistle Part 2, row 5, section A should read: K2, k1-yo-k1 in same st, k2, ssk,
  • Thistle Part 2, row 47, section C should read: yo, k1, k1-yo-k1 in same st, k2
February 16, 2010. Line 1 of the written instructions should start: (ssk twice, yo twice)… Thank you, Sherry, for pointing this out to me. The revised pattern has been uploaded to Patternfish. No printed patterns were issued before this change.
To my knowledge, there are no errors in the expanded, revised, tech edited version of this pattern that I released in 2010.

October 16, 2007. Corrected decreases for fitted cuff.

January 24, 2008. Fixed missing symbol in first chart.

March 3, 2011.
It was pointed out to me this morning that there’s an error in the written stitch instructions. On looking into it further, I found a few more. Eek. The charts are all fine. My lack of skill with written instructions bites me again. Here are the fixes, organized by section, then row number. The corrected information is bold.

  • Large stars
    • 1. K2, yo, k2tog, (k1, yo, ssk, k5, k2tog, yo, k2)…
    • 17. The very end of the line… 3 times, ssk, yo, k2.
  • Tiny stars
    • 3. K2, yo, k2tog, (yo, s2-k1-p2sso, yo, k1) twice
    • 5. K2, yo, k3tog, yo, k1…
  • Border
    • 1. Approaching the end of the line, there is an extra YO in the original instructions between the “s2-k1-p2sso” and the “(… s2-k1-p2sso, (yo, ssk) 3 times, yo, k2tog.”
    • 3. Same thing here, plus a couple more things, get the change in the number of repeats, add a yo before the bead… s2-k1-p2sso, (yo, ssk) twice, yo, bead, yo, k2tog.

March 5, 2011. This schematic is provided in patterns printed after this date to show the knitting direction.

April 2, 2012. Even rows in the written stitch instructions on pages 2 and 3 should read: “K2, purl to 2 sts before end, k2.” The charted stitch instructions are fine.

April 24, 2012. Page 4, Option 1, third sentence should start, “Cable cast on 2 sts, k2…”

May 7, 2010. Corrections made to the heel instructions of the Dutch translation of Forget-Me-Not (Vergeet-mij-niet). No corrections necessary for original English version. Please go to the Forget-Me-Not pattern page on Ravelry, to download the corrected Dutch pattern.
February 9, 2008: Fixed the second chart on page 2.

February 12, 2008: Fixed references to charts A and B on pages 8 and 9. There is only 1 chart on each of those pages.

May 5, 2008. A small chart error was found by Alexandra. If you purchased the pdf on Ravelry, you should be able to download the new copy. If you have trouble with this or purchased the pattern elsewhere, send me your email address, and I’ll send that page to you. The error is on the Lacy Lattice chart on page 4. Line 7 should read (the bold part is the change): (K2, yo) twice, s1, k2tog, psso, yo, k3, yo, s1, k2tog, psso; repeat from until 11 sts remain, then: yo, k3, yo, ssk, yo, k4, yo, K1, ssk with shawl edge.

July 18, 2011. Correcting a remaining artifact from when the pattern was nine pages long. Last page, Fancy Leaf Edging, Corner and Beyond, there are three spots that need fixing:

  1. First paragraph should begin: “Attach row 24 of above chart…”
  2. The second to the last paragraph, first part of the sentence should read, “…rows 9 through 30 of the Right of Center chart…”
  3. The second to the last paragraph, second part of the first sentence should read, “knit the 30-row Right of Center chart 8 times…”
    August 5, 2008: The first thing is a clarification, not an error, per se. It seems that some people are confused by the pattern repeat on the cuff. Think of it this way: Knit chart A once, then chart B 7 [8] times.

    The second part is an error correction. Lines 2 and 3 of the gusset setup row should be as follows. Corrections are bold.
    PU and K13 [K16] along edge, PM.
    PU and K3 [K0] along edge, K1 [K5]…

    December 31, 2008. I found two little things with the pattern that could be confusing, so I need to let you all know about them. These are fixed in the updated pattern:

    • The chart from the heel flap is missing a diagonal line. On the first line, about midway through, there’s a space that’s two stitches wide. That needs to have a diagonal line in it going from the lower left corner to the upper right corner. It should match the key just below it.
    • Immediately under the chart for the heel flap there’s a line that says, “End by working row 1 one more time.” Delete that line. Don’t knit it, either. When you finish knitting the chart repeats above, you’re ready to begin turning the heel.

    September 22, 2009. Instep chart, row 15 stitch 11 should be a “b” instead of blank. Thank you, Kathryn, for telling me about this oversight.

    July 29, 2013. In looking at the final pattern, I realized that a certain aspect of it might be unclear to some knitters. I’ve updated the pattern to add clarification on this possible issue, as follows:

    • Page 2, center column, first paragraph. Work next RS row as follows: k1, Hem lace (insert number of times here) times, k2 becomes: Beg with next RS row, work all 28 rows of Hem lace once as follows: k1, lace panel (insert number of times here) times, k2… Switch to Main lace, then work all 28 rows as est…
    • Page 3, center column, second paragraph under Increase to Armhole. Because of spacing issues, the second paragraph is now pushed up, making the first paragraph extra long. As with the body portion: Work next RS row as follows: k1, Hem lace (insert number of times here) times, k2. Work as est in Main lace for the rest of the sleeve becomes: Beg with next RS row, work all 28 rows of Hem lace once as follows: k1, lace panel (insert number of times here) times, k2… Switch to Main lace for the rest of the sleeve..
    March 19, 2012. Page 2, Next Row of Large Stars has one too many charts to work properly. To get the correct number of stitches, simply omit Chart C. Work the remaining charts in the following order: A, B, D, E, D, B, A.
    January 24, 2017. A very observant and kind knitter let me know that on the Back near the waist shaping the word “purl” needed to be replaced with “knit.” I fixed that, then I got to work. I’ve always been bothered with the way I originally did the layout, and since I was dabbling in the pattern anyway, I dabbled a little further. I moved the charts and written stitch instructions to page 2, so that they’re handy when you need them, and moved the schematic to the last page. Other things shifted around a bit to make it all work, but I like it a lot better now. Everything else should be exactly the same.

    If you don’t want to download the thing again for one word, or if you purchased a printed copy, you can find the erroneous “purl” in the second paragraph under Back, Waist: knit to marker, sm, m1R, knit to marker, m1L, sm, knit to end.

    June 21, 2017. Working the Right Front, paragraph 3, the pattern says, “Work seam side in st st, and band edge in Left main…” This should say, “… band edge in Right main…” Oops.

    July 1, 2010. Line 13 of the written instructions should read (the chart is fine): (k2, yo, ssk) 2 times, yo, s1-k2tog-psso, yo, k2tog, yo, (k3, yo, ssk, s1-k2tog-psso, yo, k2tog, yo) 2 times, k2, k2tog, yo, k2.

    July 6, 2010. Pattern instructions should read: Work pattern stitch rows 1 to 18 ten times…

    September 16, 2013. In the very first paragraph, “then work rows 1 – 10 once more” should read: “then work rows 1 – 2 once more.”

    Errors to The Sanguine Gryphon version

    The Sanguine Gryphon has emailed the updated pattern pdf to people who purchased Lalique before May 16, 2011. If you purchased a printed pattern, or have not received your updated pdf, please contact the Sanguine Gryphon for a replacement. All errors should be corrected in the revised pattern, except the following:

    July 16, 2011. There is an error to the chart key for the “V” symbol affecting the Edging Stitch chart. There should actually be an additional symbol meaning, “slip stitch as if to purl, holding yarn in back.” The original instruction for this symbol, “slip stitch as if to purl, holding yarn in front,” works for the neckline.

    Errors to the Fiber Dreams version

    May 4, 2012. Page 2, Gauge Swatch: the correct number of stitches to cast on for the swatch is 55.

    Clarifications

    This is not an error, but because of the font used may look like one: the written instructions for the Edging Stitch and the Neckline Stitch both use a symbol, “sl” meaning “slip.” So, in the pattern where it says “sl1” it means “s1” or slip 1 stitch.

    All provisional cast ons should be worked with a smooth waste yarn.

    The edging and neckline are applied borders, and so are worked at a 90° angle to the rest of the knitting.

    August 1, 2010. When I first laid out the charts for Mako, I made a decision. A decision I have come to realize confuses a lot of people. Until now, the Widening chart on page 3 hasn’t shown all of the stitches in the Center section. From now on this will be fixed. What row 1 of the Center chart should say is this: Make 1, k2.
    The only mistake found to date is an error of omission. Seems I neglected to include instructions for attaching the pocket.

    August 15, 2013. End of page 3, Finishing, between second and third paragraphs add the following: Sew pockets to inside of each front.

    This isn’t a pattern error, but some people find the charts a little confusing, so I thought a note here might help a bit. If you still have trouble with this, please let me know, and I’ll see if I can help. The confusion for some people lies with the fact that charts A and D have 14 rows each, and charts B and C only have 12 rows each. Here’s what you do: After knitting the 12 rows for charts B and C, repeat those rows again. So, as you’re knitting row 13 of A and D, knit row 1 of B and C. When you run out of rows for A and D, knit row 1 again, but this time you’re on row 3 of B and C.

    If you’re still having trouble getting your head around this send me email. I have something that will hopefully help. It’s helped other people. I will probably ask you something to prove that you already have the pattern. You’ll need to have the pattern in front of you to answer the question. ;-)

    December 9, 2015. My TE and I did go over this pattern. And all the math. Honest. Sigh. Three things:

    • Page 2. Both chart and written stitch instructions, row 5 should read: S1, k1, kfb, k3.
    • Page 3. Work all 12 rows Main lace 17 [21, 25, 29] times&hellip
    • Page 4. Once the border is all done, this many sts are on the needle: 205 [245, 285, 325].
    February 26, 2014. The stitch counts on pages 2, 3, and 4 were incorrect. They should be 18, 29, and 29 respectively. Clarification: On page 2, row 40, when you have successfully bound off 9 stitches there will be 1 stitch on the right needle, and 17 unworked stitches on the left needle for a total of 18 stitches. If you have a different number of stitches here, then you bound off the wrong number of stitches, or something is wrong on the row below.

    March 19, 2014. This time a *chart* is the culprit. Sigh. Page 3, line 17, about 1/3 of the way across there are two “\” in a row. That should read “\O” instead. The written stitch instructions are fine.

    March 27, 2014. Again with page 3. This time the written stitch instructions for lines 3 and 7 are faulty, but the chart is correct. Line 3 should read: S1, k1, yo, k2tog, 3/3LC, k1, yo twice, k2tog, yo, k2tog, k2, yo, k2. Line 7 should read: S1, k1, yo, k2tog, k7, yo, k1, (yo, k2tog) twice, k1, yo, ssk, k1, yo, k2.

    April 14, 2014. I had my TE go over everything again, with special emphasis on the written stitch instructions matching the charts. She found one more thing. With luck, this is the end of it. Fingers crossed. Page 5, row 19 should read: S1, k1, yo, k2tog, k6, ssk, yo, k2, yo, k2tog, k1, yo, k2.

    December 2017. Apparently, after getting the pattern tech edited, I made a couple little changes for the sake of formatting, and messed up the instructions. Gads. The important bits should read thus: Work all 12 rnds Main stitch a total of 7 [8, 9, 10] times, or desired length, then work rnds 1 – 10 once more. K1, yo, then beg with rnd 2, work in Seed stitch for 4 rnds.
    This isn’t an error, but some people haven’t worked multiple stitches into one stitch before, so I thought I’d put this here for them. When you get to the “kpkpk” maneuver into the double YO, do this: Drop one of the yo loops. It doesn’t matter which one. Then: (k1 leaving st on LN, bring yarn forward between needles, p1 leaving st on LN, move yarn to back between needles) twice, k1, drop st from LN.

    August 6, 2010. Sometimes I think that looking at a pattern hundreds of times can be detrimental. It certainly was in this case. A part of the chart on pages 3, 4, and 5, which was originally included was dropped, and I never saw it (and I wasn’t the only one). Because of the timing, the written instructions for that part are also missing. If knit by the spirit of the thing, rather than the letter of it, you shouldn’t have any trouble at all with the way the pattern was originally published. I know it’s been knit without problem. However, if you need to follow the letter of the thing, and who could blame you, then please download the corrected pages. If you purchased your pattern at Patternfish, as of this date the download is correct. If you purchased it before this date, please go get the updated file. Naturally I did this with a popular pattern. Of course. How could it be otherwise? Please accept my humble apologies.

    October 8, 2010. An artifact left over from changing around how the written stitch instructions were laid out. On page 2, the written instructions for charts A and B, line 9 should start: K2, yo, knit to marker, sm, k1…

    March 4, 2011. That I copied and pasted the written instructions from one section to another is obvious with this recent catch by Debbie. The Leaf chart, row 9, in the Widening, Straightaway, Narrowing, and Final Point sections should read as follows, where the bit in bold is the correction: K2, yo, ssk, k7, k2tog, yo, k1.

    April 20, 2011. Page 6, written instructions for charts A through C, line 3 should begin: Knit to marker, sm, k2, yo…

    July 18, 2011.Page 2, Starting, Chart B, row 10, and corresponding section of the written instructions. This section of the row should have 12 sts: … sm, k1, p9, k2, sm… Also, the written instructions on pages 3, 4, and 5 for Border 1, row 7 should read: K3tog, YO twice, ssk.

    September 14, 2011. The following lines in the written instructions should all read: K1, bind off 3 sts, k3.

    • Page 2, Starting, Border, row 8.
    • Page 3, Widening, Border 1, row 2, and Border 2, row 4.
    • Page 4, The Straightaway, row 2, and Border 2, row 4.
    • Page 5, Narrowing, row 2, and Border 2, row 4.
    • Page 6, The Final Point, Border, row 4.

    Also, there was a formatting issue with the chart for Border 1, row 2, in Widening, The Straightaway, and Narrowing—the wide cell should match its brethren: BO 3 sts kw.

    February 24, 2014. Corrections for the updated pattern. My TE and I missed the following (sigh). Changes to be made to both charts and written stitch instructions.

    • Starting, row 3 should read: K5, (yo, k1) twice, sm, k7.
    • Starting, row 4 should read: BO 3, k3, p6, k3.
    • The Final Point, row 17 should read: K2, yo, ssk, (s1-k2tog-psso, yo) twice, k2tog twice, yo twice, ssk.

    March 6, 2014. Corrections for the updated pattern. My TE and I went back through this pattern with a fine-toothed comb. Again. Most of the errors are with the written stitch instructions. If you know me, you shouldn’t be surprised by this. There is, however, a remaining chart error (see below), and a fix to the talk-talk on the last page. I really hope we got the rest of it with this batch. Truly. I sometimes hate this design.

    • Starting, rows 1 through 5 should include where to slip markers on either side of the leaf.
    • Widening, row 11 should read: … k3, yo, ssk, k5, sm, k2tog, yo, k2, sm
    • Straightaway, row 9 should begin: Knit to marker, sm, k2,, yo…
    • Narrowing, row 11 should read: … sm, k3, yo, ssk, k5, k2tog, yo, k2, sm
    • Final point, instructions say to remove all stitch markers, then to slip them between charts. Huh. Just take them out, then work the sections of the charts as follows: Edge, Leaf, Border.
    • Final point, chart row 11, Leaf, should begin k1, , ssk, yo, ssk…
    • Final point, chart row 12, Leaf and Edge, should be: k2, p7, k8.
    • Final point, row 2 should read: K1, 2-into-5, k4, p5, k12.
    • Final point, even rows 4 through 12 should end by knitting to the end, and so from the far side of the leaf to the end by knitting this many stitches, respectively: 11, 9, 8, 8, 8.
    • Final point, row 11 should begin: K6, ssk, yo, ssk…
    December 21, 2015. There were a couple small issues with the Twist Collective version of the pattern. If you bought the pattern after this date, you already have the corrections. If not, then follow the link above.

    There are no problems with the Fiber Dreams version of the pattern that I know of. Fingers crossed.

    June 2, 2014. Apparently there’s been an issue with the written instructions since day 1. Line 9 should read, “K1, (K1, (yo, ssk) twice, K4, yo, k2tog, K3)…”
    December 22, 2015. Yet again the thing that gets me is the written stitch instructions. You’d think I’d get such a small instruction set right, but alas, I did not. Again. So, the chart is fine, but written stitch instructions need to be corrected to read: “s1 pw wyib” wherever “sl wyif” appears.
    September 13, 2015. I was looking at this pattern over the weekend, because I’m working on the pattern for the matching mittens, and I realized that I’d accidentally swapped the key definitions for the main color and the contrasting color. In the pattern, pink is the main color, and dark purple is the contrasting color. I probably did this because I am not a pink person, and because my heart throbs when I look at that dark purple. I also swapped the required yardages for the two colors. Gads. In reality, the main color takes 175 yards, and the contrasting color takes 125 yards.

    March 20, 2017. It came to my attention that there were errors in this pattern. Some strange things were going on, and I really couldn’t imagine that all that would have slipped by not one but the two tech editors that looked the thing over in the first place. Oh. I see. Yes, well, it seems that back in September 2015 when I made those changes to the pattern, I shouldn’t have. All the oddities are magically fixed if you go back to version 1.0 of the pattern. If you have v1.1, then see above, and undo those changes, and everything should be fine. If you have v1.0, then you’re good as gold. Gads. Sincere apologies for any confusion I may have caused you.
