Clarify yarn description as follows:

for Snow Devil 200 yards from yarn list
for contrast horns, reserve 9 yards per horn

Yarns: Karabella Aurora bulky merino, Muench Goa cotton/microfiber blend, Muench Aspen merino/microfiber blend, KnitPicks Sierra, or any bulky weight yarn which knits to gauge.

Note: Gussets are symmetrical for the small size, however, medium and large require separate directions each side.
Excluding widow’s peak and sts on hold, count the number of rows you have knit along the side edge of the piece and place a marker at the midpoint of the rows. Mark this center st on both edges of crown.

Right Gusset

Prep row: With RS facing and picking up ONE ST FOR EVERY TWO ROWS, pick up and knit 3 sts before the center marker, drop marker, pick up 3 more sts. Pick up will be most attractive if you pick up in the knot, not the open stitch. Equal number of rows rem on each side of the sts picked up.—6 sts

Right gusset, Large only

Row 11: Turn, p19, sl last st as if to purl, pick up and p1 st, psso—20 sts.

Note, correct to say: The SEAM is created by …

All sizes
Correct row numbers for large size now that row 11 has been added:

All Sizes:

Row 9 (9, 13): Turn, p14 (17, 19); sl last st as if to purl, pick up and p1, psso—15 (18, 20) sts.
Repeat rows 8-9 (8-9, 12-13) until… (continue as given in book)

Left gusset, prep row should read
Prep rows: Work rows 1-4 as for right gusset.

Left gusset, Large only

Row 11: Turn, p19, sl last st as if to purl, pick up and p1 st, psso—20 sts.

The edge sts are handled differently on the Mohawk vs. Snow Devil and Devil hat. In section headed with “All sizes” just before “Nape”…

Insert “For the Snow Devil and Devil hat”, before “place sts on holder”… the rest is ok to the end of paragraph.
Then add:
For Mohawk: place all sts from hold onto needle together.
