Traveling Woman Collection Details
All of the projects in this eBook are modifications on the original Traveling Woman pattern.
The Collection contains 4 patterns and one chapter on general customizations. The four patterns include: Traveling Woman, Traveling Scarf, Traveling Socks, and Traveling Cowl. Each pattern includes the information listed above.
The chapter on general customizations is exclusive to the eBook and is not included when you purchase the patterns individually. This chapter includes instructions for: extra pointy tips, modifying the pattern for men, an extra lace-y border, and adding beads.
A note on buying individual patterns: each pattern is available for $6 individually if you do not wish to purchase the collection. Discounts or credits cannot be given towards the eBook purchase price after purchasing individual patterns. Individual patterns do not include the chapter on general customizations.
On page 10 of the ebook (v.6), or page 2 of the separate shawl pattern (v.8), there is a small typo. In the left-hand column near the bottom, the “Size XLarge only” instructions should read:
Next row: k3, yo, p2tog, p to last 5 sts (removing both center markers as you come to them), p2tog, yo, k3. (217 sts)
Free version, PDF version 1.3: xsmall, fingering weight, 320 yards. (If you are trying to update your pattern in Ravelry’s library and you haven’t purchased it, it will not work. The update is only available to those who have purchased the pattern. The is an error on row 12 of Chart A: there are 2 extra stitches on each side. This will not impact your knitting if you work the stitches as established.)
