Clarification and errata
Shoulders are worked with short rows, beginning at neck edge:
Work until 6 (5) 5 (5) 5 sts remain, turn and work back.
Work the following rows from the neck edge, with each 6 (5) 5 (6) 5 sts shorter
until there are 3 (4) 4 (4) 5 groups of stitches, a total of 18 (20) 20 (23) 25
The number of st put on hold for jacket back neck should be the same as for the
vest -- that is, for size XL it should be 35 sts on hold.
Shoulders are worked with short rows, beginning at neck edge: Work until 7 (5) 5
(8) 8 sts remain, turn and work back. Work the following
rows beginning at neck edge, with each row 7 (6) 6 (6) 5 sts shorter until there
are 3 (4) 4 (4) 5 groups of stitches, a total of 21 (23) 23 (26) 28 sts.
Vest and jacket front:
I have written "bind off for armhole as for back" - that should be "shape
armhole as for back".
There should be 21 decreases for size S, not 20.
I've made the distance between neck decreases slightly too generous, so that if
your row gauge isn't a perfect match, you may end up with too deep an armhole. I
suggest that you continue the alternately every other and every 4th row for all
20 (21) 21 (21) 22 decreases.
Shoulders are worked with short rows, beginning at neck edge in the manner as
Join shoulders with three-needle bind-off.
Rose, p. 22, Back:
There are discrepancies at the neck:
The sentence "Bind off another 2 sts at neck edge." should have been removed.
Please ignore it.
The neck shaping should read:
...place the center 33 (33) 35 (35) sts on a holder and
work each side separately. Now shape the shoulder with short rows, beginning at
neck edge: bind off 2 sts at neck edge and work until 6 (7) 7 (8) sts remain;
turn and work back. Bind off 2 sts at neck edge and work 6 (7) 7 (8) sts; turn
and work back. Place 19 (21) 22 (24) shoulder sts on a holder and work other
side to correspond.
Jasmine, p. 26:
There is a yarnover missing in the chart; it should be placed on row 5 before the first decrease.
Row 5 should read, starting at the right edge:
k1, yo. k1, yo, ssk, p1, k2tog, k2tog, yo, k5, yo, k1. Thus restoring the original stitch count.
Marguerite, chart p. 36:
A symbol (an inverted V with a dot) is lacking in the list of chart symbols on p.63:
The symbol should read p3tog, purl 3 sts together.
Poppy, p. 48:
There is a mistake in the instructions for the front and back neck. I probably discovered a discrepancy of 2 sts and corrected the wrong piece thereby doubling the discrepancy instead of eliminating it. So sorry!
...At neck edge bind off 2 sts 2 times... This will give you 18 (20) 22 (23) 26 sts for the shoulder.
...At neck edge bind off 2 sts (instead of 3) 2 times and 1 st 4 times. You will
end up with 18 (20) 22 (23) 26 sts for the shoulder here as well.
Melissa, p. 54:
There is a mistake in the chart, on rows 43 and 44: At this point in the pattern the leaf contains 11 sts (including the yarnovers made on row 43). On those two rows there should be 10 purl sts on either side of the leaf, making a total of 31 sts. Consequently the two columns of black squares should consist of 7 squares each, not 8 as shown.
Also, there are purls marked in places where they shouldn't be: at
the outer edges of the second tier of leaves (rows 34, 36 and 38), just above
the decreases. These squares should be empty - the stitches should be purled on
the WS, as should the corresponding sts on the top leaf; the stitches on rows
46, 48, 50 and 52 just above the decreases.
Instructions for knit and purl blocks have been mixed up on the fronts; To ensure that knit blocks meet purl blocks:
Size M + XL: begin and end with k10.
Size S + L: begin with k10 and end with p10.
Size M + XL: begin and end with p10.
Lily, p.58 Sleeves:
The instruction for placement of the pattern on the sleeves is less than clear.
After "Change to larger needles and work rows 1–20 on the chart", the text in
parenthesis should be: p0 (2) 4 (6), work 3 repeats, 1 seed st - the last st of
the chart - and p 0 (2) 4 (6).
This way the pattern will be centered and the numbers will come out correctly.
The sleeve pattern is read from the beginning of chart for all sizes (also less
than clear, I'm sorry to say).
