Knit Now’s brand new look issue 45 is on sale 5th March 2015, available worldwide from the MoreMags website.

Errata: At the completion of the ribbing sections for sleeve cuffs and body hems, switch to larger needles for Stockinette Stitch & Cable Pattern.

Right Front (& Left Front) Row 1 of Cable instructions should read: K3, P2, (Row 1 of chart), P2, K 14 (18, 22, 26, 30, 34, 38, 42), P2, (Row 1 of chart), P2, K3.

The length from cast on to armhole for back and fronts should be 40 (42, 42, 44, 44, 46, 46, 48) cm.

There are twice as many shoulder stitches on the fronts than the back. Two stitches on the front shoulder should be seamed to one stitch on the back shoulder. This allows for the cable pattern to lay flat.

Note:
The different armhole measurements between fronts and back allows the neck shaping on the back to be worked and still have amholes that measure the same length. The front armholes measure 17 (20, 20, 23, 23, 26, 26, 29) cm. The back armholes measure 15 (18, 18, 21, 21, 24, 24, 27) cm before the neck shaping is worked.
