Errata: The 2010 printing of book “Fisherman’s Sweaters” appears to have a misprint in the instructions for chart G, on page 64. The earlier versions of this book have the correct instructions. The correct instructions can also be found in the 1997 edition of book “Aran Knitting”, on page 67, chart A. It is the rightmost cable pattern in the trio of Braided Cables in photo on page 66.
