Got Errata?

Moroccan Days/Arabian Nights Errata

Chart A, row 21: Center stitch should be knit, not purl

Chart A, row 41, stitch 20:

Should be purl, not knit. Written directions are correct.

Chart C:

On rows 7, 9, & 11, 2nd stitch in from edge should be a knit 2 together. All right side rows on this chart begin with a beaded yarnover, k2 tog. Written directions are correct.

Chart G4, row 19, st 40:

Should be YO, not knit, as written.


I meant to put G1 & G3 on the right side triangles and G2 & G4 on the left side triangles. Directions are correct. Diagram is correct. Label is specious.

Pg. 8, Legend:

Wrong side decreases: On wrong side rows of beaded edging (Charts B & C ONLY) substitute K2tog for SSK, SSK for K2tog, and K3tog for Sk2P. (as if in garter stitch)

ALL OTHER CHARTS, wrong side rows, the symbol for a right leaning decrease (k2tog) on the right side becomes a p2tog on the wrong side, a left leaning decrease (ssk) becomes a p2 tog tbl, and an Sk2p double decrease becomes a P3tog tbl. This is standard stockinette practice.

Pg. 8, Written Dir. Chart A

Row 7 should read: (P1, k1tbl) twice, (bead1, k1) twice, k2*, not k1* as written.

Rows 11, 12, 15, 16, 19, & 20 should read: Repeat to last 9 stitches. Chart is correct.

Rows 17 & 21 should read: Repeat to last 7 stitches. Chart is correct.

Page 10, Written Dir. Chart F

Row 7: Eliminate extra * k1 from instruction. (I st-stuttered…)

Page 12 at bottom:

Should read:

End panel

Row 1: (WS) Purl. Row 2: Knit. Row 3: P1, slide 20 beads close to RH needle, k1tbl, forming a beaded loop, k2; rep from, end p1. Rows 4 -8: Knit. Row 9: Knit 94, knit 2 tog, knit 94 (189 stitches)

Pg 13, one third of the pg. down, after line beginning with Next Row:

Should read: work chart D (leaf shadows) over next 27 stitches, not 26, as written.

Cherry Country Errata

Chart B should have a fourteen-stitch repeat plus five,
not a thirteen stitch repeat. Farthest stitch to right should be included in
repeat. 131 minus 5 equals 126 or 7 times the 14 stitch repeat.

“It is unwise to be too sure of one's own wisdom. It is healthy to be reminded that the strongest might weaken and the wisest might err.”
