Passap Errata

This is a copy of an errata list we started on Yahoo and eventually published on the big Passap group on Ravelry. I think it's worth sharing it more widely, because it's very annoying to knit something and not have it come out as expected, and not everyone's in Ravelry. With thanks to all the guys on Ravelry who contributed, and to Pat Groves for her advice and comments. If anyone has any more, please add them in the comments and I'll update this post. 

E6000 instruction manual

Page 41: Right diagram: "turned to the right" should read "colours reversed"

Page 70: 2nd display "IN PATT. AT R 0" is not in the program. Disregard it and the response

Page 139: KT106 - manual indicates EX/KX - you can actually use EX/LX or EX/N as fb pushers stay in work all the time. 

Page 149: K153 - manual indicates 2R N/KX, 4R GX/KX while the console does 4R N/KX, 2R GX/KX

Page 153: KT170 - Reverse colours, some chips only. This KT seems to colour reverse the pattern on some machines

Page 156: KT181 - pushers on bb should all be in rest position to start, but to seal the edges of the knitting, bring up the first and last pusher on the bb to working position

Page 159: KT192 - says it cannot be used in combination with another pattern but it's shown on page 64

Page 160: KT193 - says it cannot be combined with a stitch pattern but it is shown on several pages eg page 63 1300/193

Pg 172: KTs 252 and 253 both say pintuck controlled by black squares. It appears that KT252 is controlled by the white squares

Page 178: KT272 - Do not leave in transfer position to knit

Note: Most of the KTs that say that they can't be used with a pattern really can be. There are some that create their own material (156 comes to mind), but KTs like 100 etc can be used with patterns (eg KT 100 for slip stitch, in combination with LX and KX and some of the other settings). The trick is to know how the pushers are being driven and how the lock setting handles the pusher settings.

E6000 stitch pattern book

Page 10: 1014/129 should rea 1014/130

Page 10 and 11: Braids need needles L4 and R3

Page 16: 1005/132 is sts 3:1 should be 1006/13 (as picked is 5:1)

Page 21: 1062/137 2/2 col is right half and 4/4 is left half

Page 26: 1066/149 not possible with cast on 1

Page 26: 1070/149 "

Page 26: 1069/149 "

Page 33: 1128/167 should have * enlarge Rs x 2

Page 33: 169 should be 1000/169

Page 33: 1072/529* instead of 537

Page 47: 1257/180 should have * placed with 12 rows distance

Page 47: 1135/180 wrong picture (with older chips is OK)

Page 64: 1256/192 KT 192 can't be combined with a pattern; try KT 193 or 194

Page 82: 1298/188 Stem is missing

Page 89: 1363 and 1363/197 - not as pictured

Page 95: 1016 change direction from E facing right to E on its back. Add 1364/198*

Page 110: 1363/252 should be 1363/253

Page 118: 1104/259 should be 1103/259*

Page 119: 254 is a racking pattern. If you want to knit as illustrated, do not rack.

Note: Tuck stitch techs are normally shown as 3 digits starting with 1. In the stitch pattern book and model books you may sometimes find that they begin with a 5. Adding 400 signifies that the tech is no longer using all the needles (see instructions, page 143). After the first empty row, bring pushers in rest and their corresponding needles out of work. 

The above rule also works for any of the ribbing patterns - let the machine tell you which needles it wants to knit on during the two SX rows. If you ignore it, it won't knit properly.
