Errata

Our patterns are all checked, re-checked, and checked again, but mistakes slip by now and then. As an aside, for some reason we seem to have the most trouble with patterns whose names start with the letter “G.” Anyway, below is a list of the corrections listed in alphabetic order by pattern name.

Originally, we didn’t included version numbers on any of our patterns. We found that it was time to implement something. At the bottom of every page of more recent editions of every pattern there is a two part number, e.g., v1.0. All patterns start out at 1.0. Any pattern errors will increase the number to the left of the decimal, e.g., it will go from v1.0 to v2.0. Changes in formatting will make the number to the right of the decimal increase. As we go through and add the pattern number to the top of page 1 on all printed patterns the second number will go up by one, resulting in a potential version number of 1.1 for something that has had no pattern errors reported.

The patterns

The following patterns have errata. If a pattern is not listed below, there is no errata for it. If you believe you have found an error in a pattern that is not listed here, please Contact us.

Reading charts

Unless pattern is being knit in the round, all odd numbered chart rows are worked from right to left, and all even numbered chart rows are worked from left to right, unless otherwise stated in the pattern. If pattern is being knit in the round, then all rows are knit from right to left. Charts are also always worked from bottom to top.

Chart and symbol problems

In earlier versions of my patterns, some Macintosh users had trouble with the chart symbols—and occasionally other text—showing up as funny little rectangles, especially on downloads before 2009. This most often happened when the pdf file was opened with the Preview application. Instead, right click on the download link. Select “Save Link As” from the menu to save the file to your hard drive. Open the file with the latest version of Acrobat Reader. This should fix the problem. If you still cannot read the pattern after doing this, please contact Patternfish.
