After completing Buttonhole band and sewing on buttons, you do not have to sew shoulder seams. You sew the collar with WS of garment and RS of collar facing, not vice versa.

Pattern# V164 – Under BACK, the first row after SHAPE BUST is a WS row, not a RS row.

Pattern# V166 – If you have “rev 02.12” below the abbreviations list on page 2, you have an updated version, so there are no corrections. If you have a version without “rev 02.12”, email for revised Shaping Notes.

Pattern# V167 – Materials: Yardage should read as follows: 1600 (1825, 1975, 2200, 2350, 2575, 2775, 3000, 3250, 3525, 3800) yards. You will need 7 (8, 9, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16) skeins of Nature Spun Worsted.

Pattern# V179 – The yarn weight symbol for this yarn (shown at the top, right) should be 2 FINE, and the Stockinette st gauge of the yarn should be 6 st per inch, not 5.5. The manufacturer calls for a gauge of 5.5 sts, but a gauge of 6 sts is more appropriate for the weight of the yarn. Under MATERIALS, it should be listed as “Sport weight wool blend….” Under PATTERN STITCHES, the following correction applies only if your pattern does not have revision #rev03.12 on the second page, in the lower right-hand corner: When viewed from the RS, the Cable and Openwork Pattern is composed of 6 sts of cabling, a 3-st purl column, a 2-st openwork column, and another 3-st purl column. The pattern for the cable column and the 3-st purl columns is a 14-row/rnd repeat, and is correct as written. The 2-st openwork column within the pattern is a 4-row/rnd repeat, and is correct as written on rows/rnds 1-4. However, once you have worked those 4 rows/rnds for the first time, continue following the pattern as written for the cable and purl columns, but work the 2-st openwork column as given on Rows/Rnds 1-4 of Cable and Openwork Pattern, as follows: Rows/Rnds 1 and 3: Work 2 sts in St st; Row/Rnd 2: Yo, k2tog; Row/Rnd 4: Ssk, yo. Repeat these 4 rows/rnds for the 2-st openwork column within the Cable and Openwork Pattern.

Pattern# V181 – The yarn weight symbol in the upper right corner of the front page should be a 4 MEDIUM. The size schematic to the left of the yarn weight symbol should read “6 months to size 12 CHILD”.

Pattern# V189 – For Neck Chart Sizes XXS-M, beg all sizes where it says “beg XXS and XS”; end all sizes where it says “end XXS and XS”. For Neck Chart Sizes 2X-6X, beg all sizes where it says “beg 2X and 3X”; end all sizes where it says “end 2X and 3X”.

Pattern# V503 – After changing yarns and/or colors, weave in all ends as you go for SLEEVE/YOKE SCARF. Do not weave in ends as you go for BODY SCARF; they will become the fringe.

Pattern# V507 – Under BACK, work Row 1 as follows: “P2, *k4, p4; rep from * to last 6 sts, k4, p2.” Under LEFT FRONT, work Row 1 as follows: *P4, k4; rep from * to last 2 sts, p2. After the ribbing is complete, and you’re ready to work the neck shaping, end with a RS row, not a WS row. The neck shaping begins with a WS row, and is worked as follows: “SHAPE NECK: (WS) BO 2 sts at neck edge 1 (0, 2, 2, 3) time(s), then dec 1 st at neck edge every row 9 (10, 9, 8, 9) times – 19 (20, 21, 22, 23) sts rem.”” Under FINISHING, add the following: “Sew shoulder and side seams. Set in sleeves.” Pick up sts for COLLAR as follows: Pick up and knit 34 (32, 39, 37, 39) sts along LEFT FRONT neck edge, 40 (44, 46, 50, 54) sts along BACK neck edge, and 34 (32, 39, 37, 39) sts along RIGHT FRONT neck edge – 108 (108, 124, 124, 132) sts.

Pattern# V704 – Rnd 1 of the Thumb Gusset should read as follows: “Rnd 1: [K1, p1, k1] 4 times, pm, M1L, pm, work to end – 25 sts.”

Pattern# B101 – Concord Top-Down Cardigan: Under Finished Measurements, the last 4 sizes are 58.75, 63.25, 67.5, 71.5)”. On page 2, under Back, JOIN SIDES, work even until piece measures 5.5 (5, 5.5, 5.75, 5.75, 6, 6.25, 5.5, 5.25, 5, 5)” from the beginning. Under Shape Gusset and Armholes, the note should read: Gusset and armhole shaping will be worked at the same time; please read entire section through before beginning. “Gusset shaping will not be completed until several inches before the bottom edge. Body will be joined when armhole shaping is complete.” The Armhole Shaping Row should read as follows: Armhole Shaping Row (RS): Increase 1 st each side this row, then every other row 2 (4, 4, 5, 5, 4, 2, 8, 8, 9, 7) more time(s), as follows: K1, M1-R, knit to last st, M1-L, k1. Purl 1 row. CO 2 sts at beginning and end of next 0 (0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 3, 4, 5, 7) RS row(s). NOTE: If your row gauge matches the given gauge, and you have worked to the exact measurements given, you should have 80 (90, 96, 104, 114, 120, 128, 136, 146, 154, 160) sts for Back after armhole shaping is complete. However, due to differences in row gauge and measuring, you may find that you have a few sts more or less than these st counts. Purl 1 row. When armhole shaping is complete, break yarn, place sts on waste yarn, and set aside. Under Body, JOIN FRONTS AND BACK, you will have 156 (180, 202, 224, 246, 268, 290, 314, 338, 362, 384) sts after pieces are joined. On page 4, for the second Back and Fronts schematic measurement from the top, the last 4 measurements should be 57, 61.5, 65.75, 69.75)”. These corrections have been made in rev.07.16.

Pattern# B103 – Killarney Top-Down Pullover: Under Needles, add “size 4 (3.5 mm) circular needle, 24″ long, for neck.” This correction has been made in rev.09.13.

Pattern# B106 – Boston Top-Down Hooded Coat: Under HOOD, Shape Hood, you will shape the left side of the Hood first, then the right side. At the end of the short-row shaping, in the last sentence of the paragraph before Shape Top of Hood, after “Place marker between center sts,” add “remove other markers. Under BODY BAND, on 6th line of first paragraph, change “ending at lower Right Front edge” to “ending at lower Left Front edge”. These corrections have been made in rev.01.14

Pattern# B107 – Rockport Top-Down Shell: Under Yarn on page 1, the yarn should be listed as Light worsted/DK weight, not worsted weight.

Break yarn, place sts on waste yarn, and set aside.” The LEFT SIDE neck shaping should read as follows: “Next Row (RS): Knit to last st, M1-L, k1. Purl 1 row. CO 2 sts at end of next 2 RS rows – 12 (14, 16, 17, 21, 24, 25, 28, 30, 29, 30) sts. Purl 1 row.” These corrections have been made in rev.09.13.
