  • There was an issue with the larger 2 sizes in stitch counts. At the end of the first column on page 49, the stitch count was incorrect after the increase row. Stitch counts should read: 113 (123, 133) sts. The result of this change is that some of the numbers for the larger 2 sizes in the second column were amended by one or two as a result. In this new version of the pattern, any change in stitch counts have been bolded. The cast-on numbers are correct.

  • In the written instruction for the center panel, Rows 3 & 7 are missing the second yo after the sl 1-k2tog-psso.
