Each word, photograph, and illustration in this book was carefully scrutinized by me, my technical editor Sandi Rosner, and several extremely observant editors at Potter Craft over a period of several months.
And yet a few errors were discovered after the manuscript went to press. I apologize, and I am deeply grateful to you for your support and understanding
All corrections are noted in bold.
Also, Sean from Boston just kindly pointed out something I missed while test-knitting this pattern (which is another reason to have someone who didn't design the pattern test it after it's been tech edited: you know it so well that you don't really see the words on the page). On the Right Thumb Gussett, you want to work 24 sts in pattern, place marker, M1R, p1, M1L, place marker, work ribbing to the end of the round. This will put the thumb gusset smack dab on top of that pretty p1 line you've been working along the mitt. Sean, I owe you some cashmere for this.
Finally, on both thumb gussets you'll have 47 stitches, not 45, after working the first round of increases.
Now, we have a little tweaking with the Turn heel instructions. First, Row 1 should read, "K17 (19, 21), ssk, k1. Turn."
Now, Sandi has modified the end of the heel instructions as follows. Note: Work Rows 11 and 12 (as detailed below) regardless of which size you're knitting. The book originally separated out these rows by size, but you'll see that Sandi now does that with Rows 13-16 instead. So, for all sizes:
Row 11: Slip 1, k14, ssk, k1. Turn.
Row 12: Slip 1, p15, p2tog, p1. Turn.
For size S, go to **.
Row 14: Slip 1, p17, p2tog, p1. Turn.
For size M, go to **.
For size L only, Row 15: Slip 1, k18, ssk, k1. Turn.
Row 16: Slip 1, p19, p2tog, p1. Turn.
** Next row: Knit 18 (20, 22) stitches. Continuing with the heel needle, pick up and knit 15 (16, 16) stitches along left-hand side of the heel flap. With the instep needle, work 30 (34, 38) stitches in Cable and Chevron pattern as established. With the heel needle, pick up and knit 15 (16, 16) stitches along right hand side of heel flap. 78 (86, 92) stitches.
Transfer the first 2 (3, 4) and last 2 (3, 4) stitches from the instep needle to the heel needle. 26 (28, 30) stitches remain on the instep needle, and 52 (58, 62) stitches are on the heel needle.
Page 140: Right Side, Right Front buttonhole row should read as follows:
Next row (buttonhole row): K3, * yo twice, k2tog, k8; repeat from * 2 (2, 2, 3, 3) times more, yo twice, k2tog, k8.
Next row: Knit, dropping the extra yarn over.
Next row (RS): * Knit to buttonhole, knit next stitch into buttonhole; repeat from * 3 (3, 3, 4, 4) times more, knit to the end of the row. (43 [43, 43, 53, 53] sts.)
Page 141: Left side, Left front, after casting on, knitting 6 rows, and changing to larger needles:
Next row (RS): Begin working from chart as follows: work stitches 1-11, then repeat stitches 2-11 3 (3, 3, 4, 4) times, then work stitches 2-3.
Also, Renee noticed that when you bind off, you'll have 29 stitches to bind off knitwise, not 25. Thank you Renee!
As a result, I need you to take out your favorite black fine-tipped rollerball pen and follow along as we make some markings on your charts. They are on page 175, Chart A, as follows:
Row 19: On the 11th stitch, k2tog.
Row 21: On the 20th stitch, work a YO instead of a K stitch.
Row 26: There should be four tidy little purl dots on either side of the center stitch. (Currently, only three exist to the left of that lonely center stitch.)
If you look at your chart like a symmetrical picture, you’ll quickly see how these same changes need to be made in the identical pattern motifs that occur further up the chart. You'll add the K2togs again in row 39, the YOs in row 41, and the purl dots in row 46.
These next corrections are just numeric, and they work as follows:
Page 174: Center panel
Work Chart B. Repeat the chart pattern 4 times around the square.
Work Chart C. Repeat the chart pattern 4 times around the square—392 stitches.
Next round: Loosely bind off 98 stitches to the first marker, knit 98 stitches to the second marker and place these stitches on a stitch holder, loosely bind off 98 stitches to the third marker, and knit the remaining 98 stitches.
Page 174: First side panel
Next row (WS): K3, place marker, * p23, m1; repeat from * twice more, p23, place marker, k3—101 stitches.
