Editor suggestions on errata:

Caron has not published, but in making the pattern, I noted the following:

When making the front sides, remember to reverse the entire pattern including the button band, not just the shaping as suggested.

Also, the sleeve cap appears to be erroneous. I have corrected it to be “dec 1 st at each end every other RIGHT SIDE row 3 (5,7) times -- 48 sts” instead of “dec 1 st at each end every other row …” Otherwise, your sleeve cap isn’t long enough.
