Let the errata begin, hurrah

Guess what? It’s that time again!

There are two missing symbols in the chart key for Eris. Plus, there were two graphics in the chart key on page 38 that managed to slip out of place when I was fiddling with the font size that I forgot to put back in their place.

You can download the corrections directly from here. If you downloaded your pattern after 5:00 AM EDT on August 2, and your file name ends with “rev011″, you don’t need these pages.

If I can figure out a way to efficiently import e-mail addresses into my mail program (in theory, it should work), all purchasers will get an e-mail advising them where to download the file. For quick reference, the missing symbols are right here:

slip next st to right-hand needle; slip next st to cable needle and hold to back; return first slipped st from right-hand needle to left-hand needle; k2tog; k1; purl st on cable needle
slip next two sts to cable neede and hold to front; purl next st; knit first st from cable needle, then return second st from cable needle to left-hand needle and ssk

    I am trying to knit a pattern from the Stitch and Bitch Nation (spider caplet)- I am on my fourth try and I know the pattern is wrong but I can’t find the correct pattern on the internet. Do you know where I could find it?

    Answers to Liz’s questions:

    1. Not really an error, it was deliberate. If you’re working one of the smallest three sizes, you start with chart B right away, in which case slipping that stitch in the first row is a bit fiddly. So I left it to be worked rather than slipped. If you’re working one of the larger sizes, the fact that the one stitch isn’t slipped won’t affect the neckline, so I left it in that condition rather than complicate the charts further. Slip the stitch if you want.

    2. Whether it’s in the back or front depends on your knitting technique . Just don’t leave a gaping hole when you do it.

    3. Just follow the charts–you’ll see that everything lines up when you get there. The cables don’t always have the same number of stitches in each row, but they’re not disjointed. The “indentations” are the result of my charting style, which usually avoids blank “no stitch” squares.

    See the discussion in the journal entry here, which includes a comparison of charts written both ways.

    A couple of questions:

    Why isn’t the first stitch slipped in row 1 on chart B? I am going to treat it as an error in the pattern.

    In the Make 1 (Purl) is there some reason you aren’t purling into the back of the stitch?

    In a number of places (like rows – 18/19 Chart F) it looks like you are working the first stitch on the row. I haven’t got there yet – but am wondering what is to be done with this stitch.

    Gorgeous pattern.

    I just had to tell you I bought Eris. I tried to resist, but the more I looked at it the more it tempted me with it’s cabled charms… ;)

    Looking forward to this knit! Now to find the yarn!

    I just love your symbols, but these look so much like Wilhelm Lehmbruck sculptures!

    Thank you so much for your email about Eris errata! I appreciate it so much. It drives me crazy when there are errors in a pattern and I can’t find corrections.
    Love your Rogue and Eris designs.
    More please!
