Errors

There appear to be errors in this pattern. I’ve contacted Nashua Handknits today (6/16/07) to ask them to check the pattern and if/when they post errata. In the meantime, if you knit this pattern, feel free to send me a message when you get to the “dividing row”.

I just heard back from Nashua Handknits (6/18/07) and there are indeed errors in the pattern.

Next row (RS): P3, k3, p3; rep from to end - yoke meas about 41/2 (5 1/4, 5 3/4)” 11.5 (13.5, 14.5) cm.
