A general note relating to gauge and needle sizes (applies to all patterns): The needle size listed in all my patterns is the size I used to knit the item in the photos. Since I am a Continental knitter, my gauge is often very loose compared to that of other knitters. You may need to use a larger needle size to achieve the same gauge.

Aoi Mai Shawl:

The most recent pattern version is Aoi Mai, 075-130526-RevA. On older versions, the following changes apply:
  • On Chart B (both normal size and enlarged), Row 30 was mislabeled "20." This has been corrected in the current version.


Darling Buds of May:

The most recent pattern version is Darling Buds of May, 094-140609-RevA. On older versions, the following changes apply:
  • On p. 2, the instructions have been adjusted to read: "When final rnd is complete, do not cut yarn. CO 12 and work Chart C until all live sts are worked."


Light Lyric Coloratura Cardigan:

The most recent pattern version is Light Lyric Coloratura Draped-Front Cardigan, 050-120730-RevC. On older versions, the following changes apply:
  • On p. 3, the full-fashioned decrease instructions for both right an left front used to say "dec 1 st at each end of every RS row." They should read:
    Right Front, Full-fashioned dec's: "Dec 1 st at end of every RS row"
    Left front, Full-fashioned dec's: "Dec 1 st at beg of every RS row". Corrected in revision C.
  • On p. 4 in the instructions for the Front Band, the cast-on number and first two rows are correct. At this point, the original version reads "Next row (RS) K1, work Chart C to last st, K1." This has been changed to: "Next row (RS) Begin working Chart C." The same change applies in the Hem Band section. The K1 at the edges of the band have been removed, since these stitches are included in the chart. Corrected in revision B and later.
  • Old versions call for US #1 dpns. The pattern should read: US 1 (2.5 mm) straight or circular (OR size to obtain gauge). Corrected in revisions A and later.
  • The old version had an error in the directions for the right front, in the "work even" stockinette area before the armhole decreases. The paragraph before the Armhole heading should read: "Work even until piece meas 8 (8, 8, 8, 9.5)[10, 10.5, 10.5, 10.5]" / 20 (20, 20, 20, 24)[25.5, 26.6, 26.6, 26.6] cm from CO edge, then work armhole shaping." Corrected in revisions A and later.


Peter Lorre, the Mysterious:

The most recent pattern version is 018-peter-lorre-textured-argyle-vest_RevA. On older versions, the following changes apply:
  • The Right and Left side of the front are from the perspective of the knitter. The instructions are correct on all versions; only the labels on the schematic have been changed.


Tree of Life in Autumn Fichu: 
Changes also apply to "The Tree of Life Through the Seasons Pattern Collection".

The most recent pattern version is RevC. On older versions, the following changes apply:
  •  On p. 2, the last two sentences of the first paragraph should read "After completing the final row, knit 1 row (RS), removing markers as you come to them. Do not cut yarn."
  • On p. 2, the instructions under "Leaf Border" should start with the sentence "Begin with RS of shawl facing." After the cast-on, the next sentence should read: Work setup row (WS) once, then repeat rows 1-10 of chart ..."
  • On row 9 of the "Autumn Leaves Border" chart, the first stitch should show the symbol indicating to "slip stitch purlwise with yarn in front" as for the other RS rows.
  • On Chart C (Left side): The last 6 sts of Row 4 (WS) should be knitted, and the last 8 sts of row 6 (WS) should be purled.



Tree of Life in Summer Fichu:
Changes also apply to "The Tree of Life Through the Seasons Pattern Collection".

The most recent pattern version is 012-tree-of-life-in-summer-fichu-revF.pdf. On older versions, the following changes apply:
  • You will need #3 straight or circular needles, not #3 dpns.
  • The beginning of the instructions should read "Cast on 22 stitches," not 19 stitches.
  • On Chart B: Center, the fourth stitch from the left on row 35 should be a plain knit, not a knit-two-together.
  • One of the symbols in the chart is incorrect. The third symbol in the key identified it as "Purl 2 together (WS)". It should be a left-leaning decrease and say "Knit 2 together (WS)". It will look like a K2tog on the right side of the piece. The change only affects the chart for the border.


Tree of Life in Spring Fichu:
Changes also apply to "The Tree of Life Through the Seasons Pattern Collection".

The most recent pattern version is 013-tree-of-life-in-spring-fichu-revB.pdf. On older versions, the following changes apply:
  • One of the symbols in the chart is incorrect. The third symbol in the key identified it as "Purl 2 together (WS)". It should be a left-leaning decrease and say "Knit 2 together (WS)". It will look like a K2tog on the right side of the piece. The change only affects the chart for the border.
