Koigu Silver Shawl - errata

Corrections marked in red. Getting the "to last X sts" is pretty unforgiveable - my first attempt was slowed by frogging perfectly good rows stitch by stitch in an attempt to make the stitches at the end add up. Missing out the * is pretty bad, too - luckily I can recognise which bit needs repeating. Clearly nobody proof-read or test-knitted from this pattern. Not very professional!

Got to third repeat with this and had completely wrong number of sts (ie not 77) so frogged the whole thing right back. Currently done one repeat. Still no sign of a pattern developing. Must remember to use lifelines to avoid too much frogging. If I don't get past the third repeat this time, I am picking a proper charted design from one of Barbara Walker's books I think!

In other news, finished and sewed up the waves jumper, I just need to locate 4 suitable buttons. Arms still a little snug but I think I can live with it. I want to steam the cuffs flat as they have a tendency to roll.
