Wanted to share that there are errors in Little Badger Knitwear -- I had trouble with the heart sweater and the soccer sweater. When I searched on-line for corrections, I saw that others had trouble with the ballet sweater and dragon hat.

The good news is that the publisher was very prompt in sending errata when I dropped them an e-mail. I hope it is okay if I post them here -- in case someone (just like me) gets majorly stuck on a weekend (or late at night!)

I got the errata for the whole book.

To paraphrase another poster, the happy accident is that I came across these forums in trying to solve my problem. What a great place!

Little Badger Knitwear
Due to printing errors and conversion from inches to cm please note amendments 10/06/01


SSK: slip 1 stitch, slip another stitch, put on left hand needle, k2together through back of stitch. This looks like K2tog in reverse and avoids stretching the stitch. However slip 1, knit 1, pass slip stitch over would also work (but wouldn’t look as neat).
Sl 2tog.k1,p2sso;slip 2together(as if you were going to k2tog) then knit the next st and pass both the slipped sts over the knitted one. This has the same effect as k3tog but the stitch in the middle lies on top of the other 2

Thanks for posting this. I just finished the Pirate sweater and I had to reknit the front because the motif in the chart wasn't centered. I'm not sure if it was me or a mistake in the pattern. . .

I think it said something like P 16, insert chart, P 8. It should have been P 8, insert chart, P 16. Bleah. . . It turned out cute though. I need to get the buttons sewn on and it's done.

I don't know if I'll make any of the others, maybe the soccer one if my ds decides to play this spring.

THANKS! I had just started the dragon hat when I decided to find any corrections. You were a lifesaver, and the hat is a must knit!
