On p56 under the Body section, part of the pattern instruction missing. It should read:
Cont working in the rnd and st st until side seam meas 32 [32: 33: 33.5:31: 34] cm or 6 cm less than the desired length.
Rows 12, 16, 18, 28, 48, 50, 60 and 62 of the stripe pattern should all say slwyif, not slwyib.
Rows 23 and 24 of the stripe pattern are transposed. They should read:
Row 23: Knit.
Row 24: Purl.
Chart placement for D1 is incorrect. It should read:
Rnd 1: *P1, starting with stitch 16 (10:4:14:8:2) work Chart D1 to mrk, work Chart D2 once, starting with stitch 1 work Chart D3 to 1 st before mrk, ending after stitch 2 (8:14:4:10:17), P1; rep from * once more.

Yarn quantities should say 3 x 50g balls, not 1 x 50g ball
Debbie Bliss has provided new text for the cable panel to avoid ambiguity in some sizes:
Row 1: (WS) [P4, k1(1:1:2:3), p4, k4, p3, k2, p6, k2, p3, k4] 3 times, p4, k1(1:1:2:3), p4.
Row 2: [K4, p1(1:1:2:3), k4, p2, C5R, p2, k6, p2, C5L, p2] 3 times, k4, p1(1:1:2:3), k4.
Row 3: [P4, k1(1:1:2:3), p4, k2, p3, k4, p6, k4, p3, k2] 3 times, p4, k1(1:1:2:3), p4.
Row 4: [C4B, p1(1:1:2:3), C4F, p2, k3, p4, k6, p4, k3, p2] 3 times, C4B, p1(1:1:2:3), C4F.
Row 5: Work as row 3.
Row 6: [K4, p1(1:1:2:3), k4, p2, k3, p4, C6F, p4, k3, p2] 3 times, k4, p1(1:1:2:3), k4.
Row 7: Work as row 3.
Row 8: Work as row 4.
Row 9: Work as row 3.
Row 10: [K4, p1(1:1:2:3), k4, p2, C5L, p2, k6, p2, C5R, p2] 3 times, k4, p1(1:1:2:3), k4.
Row 11: [P4, k1(1:1:2:3), p4, k4, p3, k2, p6, k2, p3, k4] 3 times, p4, k1(1:1:2:3), p4.
Row 12: [C4B, p1(1:1:2:3), C4F, p4, C5L, C6F, C5R, p4] 3 times, C4B, p1(1:1:2:3), C4F.
Row 13: [P4, k1(1:1:2:3), p4, k6, p12, k6] 3 times, p4, k1(1:1:2:3), p4.
Row 14: [K4, p1(1:1:2:3), k4, p6, (C6B) twice, p6] 3 times, k4, p1(1:1:2:3), k4.
Row 15: Work as row 13.
Row 16: [C4B, p1(1:1:2:3), C4F, p4, C5R, C6F, C5L, p4] 3 times, C4B, p1(1:1:2:3), C4F.
These 16 rows set the pattern and are repeated.
Written instructions for Chart B Row 15 should read:
Row 15: P3, s2kpo, P3, *K1tbl, P3, K1tbl, P3; rep from * to last 6 sts, s2kpo, P3.
The chart key on this pattern is not labelled correctly. It should say ‘Knit’, rather than ‘Knit on RS, Purl on WS’
The last size is missing in the stitch counts on the ‘Begin Body Chart’ Section. It should read:
Rnd 1 (RS): K2, pm, starting with stitch 1 (17:21:1:17:21:1:17:21:1) work Chart B to last st, ending after stitch 1 (9:5:1:9:5:1:9:5:1) of chart, pm, K1, cast on 8 sts and join to work in the rnd. K2 to mrk. This is the new beg of rnd. 265 (281:297:313:329:345:361:377:393:409) body sts and 11 steek sts.
The yardage given for the mini skeins in the yarn info should be 200m/219yds per 25g skein.
On Row 16 of the chart the C6F in the middle was missing. The corrected chart is here.
For the pullover version of this pattern, you need to repeat rows 11 to 30 to get the design as shown in the photo, not just rows 13 to 30
The images for Embroidery Pattern E (neckband) are missing from the pattern. They can be downloaded here: The Knitter 159 Vida Pattern E images PDF
The yarn quantities are incorrectly listed. The quantities are as follows:
All Sl 2 instructions in the pattern should be worked as Sl 1.
Rows 2-12 and 32-42 don’t repeat correctly in the chart as shown. When working these rows, simply keep working the four-stitch repeat as set all the way around the hat.
The yarn information for this pattern should read:
UK Alpaca 4ply 80% baby alpaca 20% silk, 225m per 50g ball (not 100g balls as stated in patt)
7 (7:8:8:9) balls needed.
Next 2 rows: Cast on 9 sts, purl across these sts, P to end.
131 (143:155:167:179:191) sts
Place a locking marker at centre of last row on stitch 66 (72:78:84:90:960
((Symbol in 11th square of row 5b must be Sl1yo and Symbol in 11th square of row 11b must also be Sl1yo))
Work a picot cast-off as follows: cast off 1 st, *transfer st from RH to LH needle, cast on 3 sts, cast off 9 sts; rep from * to last 2 sts, cast on 3 sts, cast off 5 sts.
There’s a mistake in the Right Front:
Row 27 (RS): P to mrk, slm, work Row 1 of Lupin patt to mrk, slm, P to mrk, slm, work next row of Small Bells patt to mrk, slm, P to end.
The printed pattern says Foxglove, but it should be Lupin.
There’s a correction for the yarn quantities. It should say:
Yarn C Golden (877) x 2 (3, 3, 4) balls
Sizes S and XL only
Change to 3.25mm needles and yarn B.
Rows 59-60: Work in garter st.
Change to yarn C.
Row 61: (K18, turn) twice, K25 (-:-:44), *K4, Sl 3, K16, turn, (Sl 1, M1, K6, turn, Sl 1, K5, turn) 4 times, Sl 1, M1, K6, turn, K2, (K2tog) 4 times, K4, K2tog, K1; rep from * another 7 (-:-:8) times, K4, Sl 3, K11 (-:-:30), (K18, turn) twice, K18.
Row 62: K29 (-:-:48), (Sl 3, K5, K11, K5) 8 (-:-:9) times, Sl 3, K29 (-:-:48).
Change to yarn B.
LEFT EMBOSSED LEAF PATTERN
Row 19: K2, KFB, (K1, yo) twice, K1, P2tog, P8.
Change to 7mm needles.
Establish placement of stitch patts as folls:
Row 2 (WS): P3, K5 (8:11:14:17), slm, work Row 2 of Chart C, slm, work Row 2 of Chart B, slm, work Row 2of Chart A, slm, K5 (8:11:14:17), P3.
Sizes 12-14, 16-18, 20-22 and 24-26 only
Rep last 2 rows another – (1:2:3:4) time(s), ending after a row 2, and working a P2tog dec at beg of row, and a SSP dec at end of row when working decs over rev st st.
– (8:12:16:20) sts dec’d. – (85:79:73:79) sts currently on needles as you have just completed row – (32:34:36:38) of Chart B, which gives – (18:15:13:13) sts across Chart A and C sections and – (35:33:29:33) sts across Chart B section.
Work as for Back to **.
101 (85:79:73:79) sts currently on needles as you have just completed row 28 (32:34:36: 38) of Chart B, which gives 22 (18:15:13:13) sts across Chart A and C sections and 41 (35:33:29:33) sts across Chart B section, with 8 (7:8:9:10) sts at each side edge outside of Chart panels.
Rep last 4 rows another 1 (2:1:2:1) times.
6 (8:6:8:6) sts inc’d at sleeve edges in total.
73 (83:79:89:83) sts currently on needles as you have just completed row 19 (23:19:23:19) of Chart B, which gives 33 (41:33:41:33) sts across Chart B section.
((At the end of row 19 (23:19:23:19) of Chart B the Kfbs and Pfbs have already been knitted, so there is already the number of sts of the foll row on the needles))
…6 sts dec’d at sleeve edges in total.
67 (69:73:75:77) sts currently on needles as you have just completed row 37 of Chart B, which gives 33 sts across Chart B section.
The needle size in the body of the pattern should read 5.5mm.
There’s a correction for the chart key. The symbol that says K1tbl should say K1tbl on RS; P1tbl on WS.
In the yarn info panel, there are two yarn Bs. Blue should be Yarn C.
At the end, in the making up section, the Lower Border pick up should be worked before the neck, and not at the end.
The instructions given for the textured stitch pattern are wrong, as they don’t account for the fact that the purl stitches are offset every second textured round. It should read as follows:
TEXTURE STITCH PATTERN
Rnds 1 to 3: Knit.
Rnd 4: *K3, P1; rep from * to end.
Rnds 5 to 7: Knit.
Rnd 8: K1, P1, *K3, P1; rep from * to last 2 sts, K2.
Last 8 rnds set Texture Stitch patt.
After working Chart C and before working 2 rows in yarn D, Chart B should only be repeated once, not 3 times as stated in the pattern.
The Back moss stitch band is worked for 8cm, while the Front moss stitch band is worked for 4 cm. The Back and Front pieces are otherwise worked the same.
Also, the pattern notes state that the sleeve cuff is worked as a deep rib, but it is a short moss stitch cuff as outlined in the pattern instructions.
LACE PATTERN – YARN A
Row 13: Sl 1 wyif, kfbf, K2, *K2tog, (yo) twice, ssk; rep from * to last 6 sts, K3, yo, K2tog, K1. 2 sts inc’d.
The ssk is missing from the printed pattern.
Row 14 on all charts should end with k2tog. Written instructions are correct.
There was an error in the Special Abbreviations sections, here is the corrected text:
C3F: Slip 1 st to cn and hold at front, K2; K1 from cn.
One of the colours is listed incorrectly. Yarn G should actually be Brasov 038.
There’s a mistake in the chart for this design – yarn O is missing from the top of the second diamond, with yarn N shown again instead. You can download the corrected section of chart here.
At the end of the instructions for the Circular Ends, it’s missing the direction to sew them up into a circle. The following line should be added:
Seam edges together from centre to outside edge of circle.
At the start of Slipper 1, after casting on with yarn B and joining into the round, you should then join in a second strand of yarn B, not yarn A as written.
For the “steek patt”, work as follows over 7 steek sts:
Every rnd: K1 with A, K1 with B, K1 with A, K1 with B, K1 with A, K1 with B, K1 with A.
The pattern says to begin working Chart B from Round 1, but there’s actually a set-up round that should be worked first.
BEGIN MAIN PATTERN
Rnd 1: (Work round 1 of Chart A, K8) 2 (3:3:3:4) times, work round 1 of Chart A, P9 (4:9:9:4), work set-up rnd of Chart B over next 36 (36:36:46:46) sts, P9 (4:9:9:4), (work round 1 of Chart A, K8) 2 (3:3:3:4) times, work round 1 of Chart A, pm, K8, *work round 1 of Chart A, K8; rep from * to end of round.
Rnd 2: K22 (32:32:32:42), P9 (4:9:9:4), work round 1 of chart B, P9 (4:9:9:4), knit to end of round. (Note: This round counts as round 2 of chart A.)
The chart also shows the repeat as including the set-up round, which it shouldn’t – here is a corrected chart.
There’s a small error in the “Eyelet stitch (worked flat)” stitch pattern for this design. Row 14 should actually read:
Row 14 (WS): *P6, SSP, yo; rep from * to end.
Under Sleeves, Set Pattern and Shape Sleeve:
Rnd 14: K4, *yo, SSK, K6; rep from * to end.
The tension should be on 5mm needles, not 3½mm.
The Needles section lists the 5mm needles as US 6 – it should be US 8.
The One Sweater (supplement)
The yarn quantities should read as follows:
The Fibre Co. Cumbria (60% merino wool, 30% masham wool, 10% mohair; 218m (238yd) per 100g hank) in Scafell Pike: 2 [2: 3: 3: 3: 4: 5: 5: 6: 6: 7: 7: 8] hanks. For longer length – [-: -: -: -: -: 5: 5: 6: 7: 7: 8: 9] hanks. Our yardage given includes enough to knit an 8″ x 8″ tension swatch.
Instructions are missing for the Back right neck – please work as per the instructions given for the left neck, reversing all shapings.
The colours in the key should read as follows:
The chart repeat box is one stitch out. You can download the corrected chart here.
Summer Rain Shawl
Edging – Raindrop Motifs
Row 1 (RS) Sl 1 wyif, change to yarn B, SSK, knit to last 3 sts, K2tog, K1. 327 sts.
Row 2 Sl 1 wyif, purl to end.
Row 3 Sl 1 wyif, SSK, knit to last 3 sts, K2tog, K1. 325 sts.
Row 4 Sl 1 wyif, purl to end.
In the key for the chart, there’s a symbol that says: K3tog on RS; P2tog on WS. It should be: K3tog on RS; P3tog on WS.
The ‘Front’ section begins with “With RS facing, rejoin yarn B”. This should be yarn A.
Chart key has transposed symbols for K2tog and SSK. Where chart shows K2tog, SSK and vice versa.
There’s a colour missing in the yarn info:
D Lime Green (198)
A small amount is also needed for embroidery.
There’s a correction in the written instructions for Chart D – the chart is correct.
Row 5 Sl 1 wyif, K1, yo, K4, (K2tog, yo, K1) twice, yo, *sk2po, yo, K5, yo; rep from * to last 15 sts, sk2po, yo, (K1, yo, SSK) twice, K4, yo, K2.

Next row (WS) *P1A, P1B; rep from * to last 1 (0:0:1:0:0:1:0:1:0) st, using A, P1 (0:0:1:0:0:1:0:1:0).
Rep RS row once more.
Cut yarn and leave sts on holder.
BRAIDED CABLE PATTERN (worked over 22 sts)
Row 1 SSK, yo, C10F, yo, K2tog, K8.
Rows 2-6 Work in st st, beg with a P row.
Row 7 K8, SSK, yo, C10B, yo, K2tog.
Rows 8-18 Work in st st, beg with a P row.
The repeat info after two rows references the wrong charts. (The rows themselves are correct.)
Just before SHAPE ARMHOLES
Row 1 K1, P10 (16:22:28), (work next row of Chart A, work next row of Chart D) twice, work row 1 of Chart C, work next row of Chart D, work next row of Chart C, P10 (16:22:28), K1.
Row 2 (WS) K11 (17:23:29), work next row of Chart C, work next row of Chart D, work next row of Chart C, (work next row of Chart D, work next row of Chart A) twice, K to end.
Rows 1 and 2 set placement for Charts A, D and C. Cont from next row of all charts until work meas approx 38cm, ending on a WS row.
There were errors in Chart B of this pattern. The correct chart can be downloaded here.
The yarn amount for Yarn F should be: 2 (2:3:3:3:3:4) x 25g balls
The chart for this pattern is missing a symbol. There should be a Sk2po on row 13, stitch 8. The correct chart can be dowloaded here.
The chart has a circle symbol which was not included in the chart key. The circle symbol stands for ‘Yarn over’.
The yarn quantities for this garment should be 7 (8:9:10:11) skeins of The Fibre Co Luma, which comes in 125m/50g skeins, not 100g skeins.
There were errors in the charts for this pattern. Corrected charts can be downloaded here.
For the Medium size, the pattern calls for four skeins of Yarn A, Feather, but it should be five skeins.
There is an error in the heel flap section of this pattern. Chart B should be worked over the heel flap stitches, not Chart C as stated.
Rows 9-16 of the colourwork pattern should read as follows:
Row 9 With yarn B, Sl 3, K3, *(Sl 1, K1) twice, Sl 1, K3; rep from * to last 3 sts, w&t.
Row 10 (WS) With yarn B, *P3, (Sl1, K1) twice, Sl 1; rep from * to last 6 sts, P3, w&t. With RS facing, slip 3 sts on RH needle to LH needle.
Row 11 With yarn A, K2, knit wrap with wrapped st, Sl 3, *K5, Sl 3; rep from * to last 3 sts, knit wrap with wrapped st, K2.
Row 12 With yarn A, K2, P1, *Sl 3, P5; rep from * to last 6 sts, Sl 3, P1, K2.
Rows 13-14 Rep Rows 9-10.
Row 15 With yarn A, K2, knit wrap with wrapped st, knit to last 3 sts, knit wrap with wrapped st, K2.
Row 16 With yarn A, K2, purl to last 2 sts, K2.
The needle sizes in this pattern are incorrect – instead of 2½mm and 3mm, the correct sizes are 3½mm and 4mm.
When working the Front, the instructions say to keep both sets of shoulder stitches on stitch holders. This is incorrect – these should both be cast off instead. Only the centre stitches for the neckband should be left on a holder.
The Shell Pattern should be worked as follows:
Rnd 1 (RS) *K3 (yo, K8, yo, K1) to 2 sts before mrk, K2, slm; rep from * once more.
230 (252:274:296:318:340:362) sts.
Rnd 2 *P4, (K8, P3) to 1 st before mrk, P1, slm; rep from * once more.
Rnd 3 *K3, (K1, yo, K8, yo, K2) to 2 sts before mrk, K2, slm; rep from * once more.
270 (296:322:348:374:400:426) sts.
Rnd 4 *P5, (K8, P5) to mrk, slm; rep from * once more.
Rnd 5 *K3, (K2, yo, K8, yo, K3) to 2 sts before mrk, K2, slm; rep from * once more.

Rnd 6 *P6, (K8, P7) to 14 sts before mrk, K8, P6;
