Notes: Christabel is constructed bottom-up in pieces, then seamed. The collar and bands are picked up and worked after the pieces have been assembled. To create a structured jacket, the gauge given is fairly dense for the yarn. Be sure to choose a yarn that will give a dense fabric at the given gauge and avoid yarns with too much drape or the collar won’t stand up. The seamed construction also aids in giving a crisp, hard-wearing structure.

Errata
Page 79, righthand column, second paragraph from the bottom & page 80, lefthand column, second paragraph from the bottom:
The length worked after the armholes before beginning neck shaping should be less for the Fronts than for the Back so the Front neckline is deep enough. It should read, “Work in St st until piece measures 12.5(13.5, 14, 14.5) 15, 16, 17, 189, 19.5) cm / 5(5.25, 5.5, 5.75) 6, 6.25, 6.75, 7.5, 7.75)” from initial armhole Cast-off row, ending after a RS row,” For both Right and Left Fronts.

Page 80: After the ribbing, switch to larger needles.

In final line of the righthand column, the stitch count for size 7 should be 84, not 82.

Page 81: Left Column, after initial Sleeve Cap bind-off, omit the entire “NOTE” paragraph and work instead:

“Begin working 8-row Corrugated Rib pattern on next row, a RS row, working any shaping if necessary for your size. Maintain pattern throughout shaping.”
