>Don’t take me wrong: I love my Viva Poncho book. It is small but great, hip, it goes from simple to tangy. Its absolutely complete. BUT, as any other book, it has errors, and the HUGE problem comes when the errata is also wrong.
Im knitting the Eudora pattern as a Xmass gift for my mom (don’t worry, she does not use a computer, and does’nt know about this blog). And everything was OK until Row 41. Let me explain: the pattern need a 42 sts instruccions but delivers a 40. It is also suppose to decrease a stitch every 41 set of sts, but it increasses 4.
Soooooo, I look for the errata on Internet and found a page of them in an anexus of the articlepract.com page. Found out that there were 2 lines wrong, copied it and try again. Surprise! It is wrong too! As the instructions in the book it has a patter for 40, not 42 sts. And as in the book, it increasses, not decreasses.
I wrote an email to the writters but 5 minutes later an automatical email said to me that the mailbox has return my email. So I have to develope the solution myself. (Im really proud of that, being a begginer knitter and all).
This is the printed pattern:
Row 1: (k1-f/b) twice, k6, k1-f/b twice, k7, ssk, k2tog, k8, k1-f/b twice, k7, ssk; repeat from * to marker, k3 – 211 stitches remain.
The errata pattern:
ROW 41: K3, * k2tog twice, k6, k1-f/b twice, k7, ssk, k2tog, k8, k1-f/b twice, k7, ssk; repeat from * to marker, k3 – 211 stitches remain.
It fits perfectly. So, if you try the Eudora pattern, don’t brake your head on the solution, I do it for you! jajajaja
