Although we tried very hard to make sure there were no errors in Brave New Knits before going to press, we regret that we’re only human. Below are corrections.
ORIGAMI SHRUG: Page 119: The written Stitch Pattern instructions should read as follows for these two rows:
Row 16: *K4, yo, k1, yo, k4, sl 1-ssk-psso, rep from * to end.
Row 18: *K4, yo, k1, yo, k4, sl 1-ssk-psso, rep from * to end.
TULIP PEASANT BLOUSE: Page 11: Error in the Body Lace Chart, row 21. Reading the chart from Right to Left, the second YO symbol and the third purl symbol are switched. (Second YO should be a purl; third purl should be a YO.)
TULIP PEASANT BLOUSE: Page 9: Error in the Sleeve Edging instructions: The Size XS knitted sample’s sleeve lace border includes 4 full repeats (at 18 sts x 4 = 72) plus 4 extra sts on either side of the underarm, where the motif is split on either side of the central yarnovers for a total of 8 extra stitches. This means that the sleeve lace border has a total of 80 stitches including the extra 8. The border in this size measures a total of 14 inches in circumference. As written in the book, the pattern includes only half of the actual stitches needed to cast on for the sleeve border lace. The correct number of CO sts for the sleeve lace borders should be: 80 (80, 82, 84, 84, 86, 88). Follow remaining directions as written.
In addition, the lace repeats for the Neckline Lace Chart should be started at Row 1 for the Right side of the neckline, and should be started at Row 7 for the Left side of the neckline. This will give the Neckline Lace the mirror image appearance seen in the project photos.
GLOBAL CABLE COAT: As has been posted on the comments on the pattern page for the Global Cable Coat, there is an error in round 11 of the cable panel line-by-line on page 27 (half way down the right-hand column on that page). The line should end with “p1”, not “p2.” This section should also tell you, immediately following “Cable Repeat” at the top of the right-hand column” that: The pattern repeat is 12 stitches. Please refer to the chart at the end of the pattern on Page 32, which gives this information.
KROOKUS CARDIGAN: Here is the link to the Stitch Definitions Legend that Mari provided to explain the cable crossings in this pattern: http://www.flickr.com/photos/tikru/4963646325/
A reader recently brought the following to my attention: There is an error in the Krookus Chart 1A in line 55, rightmost cable shown as “C4 over 1R” should be “C4 over 2R” and stockinette between the cables should be 5 stitches instead of 6. Thank you, Laura!
(IT COMES IN) WAVES PULLOVER: If you look at the photo of the sweater, you can see that you have to set up the cables for a few rows before you immediately start crossing them as the chart would have you do. SO, on Page 47, right-hand column immediately AFTER instructions for Rnd 20 and just before directions to Continue at “All Sizes” below, you need to work Rnds 22 – 27 of the “chart” (in quotes because the chart doesn’t cover this area, but you will work it where it says to “work chart”) as follows:
Rows 22 – 27: follow chart as for rows 68 – 73. This will give your cables their “legs” before you need to cross them.
Sleeve cable should be every 10 rows. It is set up that way, but the chart shows 7 rows.
Instructions for the C3Rp should be: Place 1 st on CN and hold in back, k2, p1 from CN.
In addition, on Page 47, there is one correction needed to the Cable Symbol Definitions, as follows: In the left-hand column at the top of the page, on the cable symbol instructions for C4L and C4R. As written …p2, k2 from CN is wrong- both should say “…k2, k2 from CN.”
LENINA CAP: On Page 189, on the right hand side of the page, 6 lines down from the top in the FINISHING section, the text should read as follows: “Hold the two needles parallel in the left hand with WRONG sides of the two panels together. Use the three-needle bind-off…”
ORCHID THIEF SHAWLETTE: Please use this link to access the corrected charts for this pattern: http://ysolda.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/orchidthieferrata.pdf
HYDRANGEA NECKWARMER: The decrease in Rnd 5 should be sk2p (sl 1 k2tog psso) in BOTH the chart and the written instructions.
Also, please note on the chart that you need to move the first stitch over at the start of Rnd 7 and Rnd 9, then continue to work those Rnds as directed. Here are the definitive instructions:
Climbing Vine Pattern: Note: At the start of Rounds 7 and 9, move the first stitch and the marker as indicated, shifting the start of these rnds by 1 stitch Round 1: *yo, k2, ssk, k3, k2tog, k2, yo, k1, rep from * to end of round. Round 2 and all even-numbered rounds: Knit. Round 3: *k1, yo, k2, ssk, k1, k2tog, k2, yo, k2, rep from * to end of round. Round 5: *k2, yo, k2, sl 1 k2tog psso, k2, yo, k3, rep from * to end of round. Round 7: (remove marker, k1 st to RH needle, replace marker), *(k1, yo) twice, k2, ssk, k3, k2tog, k1, rep from * to end of round. Round 9: (remove marker, k1 st to RH needle, replace marker), *yo, k3, yo, k2, ssk, k1, k2tog, k2, rep from * to end of round. Round 11: *k5, yo, k2, k3tog, k2, yo, rep from * to end of round. Round 12: Knit.
HELIX SOCKS: In the SPECIAL STITCHES LT directions it should say, “Knit the first st on the Left hand needle…” (not left-and needle…)The Helix pattern has five rounds. After the Rnd 5 directions on Page 211 it says,”Rep Rnds 1-4 for 37 rnds.” It should say Rep rnds 1-5 for 37 rnds.
SPROUTING CLOCHE: There is an error in Row 30, where K3 should be K5. In Row 40, the chart omits an extra purl stitch inside either end. You have to decrease additional stitches. Then complete the chart with 18 stitches plus the two selvage stitches, rather than 32 as the pattern states. Chart Rows 44 and 45 show 2 extra knit stitches in the middle that should not be there.
