Icelandic Handknits – errata

It is very frustrating to see mistakes in a pattern book. Mistakes do happen however at every stage of the making of a book, even after test-knitting and tech-editing when book is being layed out and charts redrawn. It’s frustrating and I’m very sorry for the inconveniences it may cause.

p 10: Picture caption: Halldóra is wearing the upphlutur.

p 21 Checkered beanie Chart A: st 1 /rows 18 and 19: should be k tbl instead of k2tog

p 25, 30: Leaf mittens, slouchy cap & scarf: the material listed in each pattern is for the whole set, used in proportions of about 15% for the mittens, 25% for the cap and 60 % for the scarf.

p 33 Leaf Mittens Chart A2: the blue leaf motif on rows 10 to 18 /sts 28 to 56 has been accidentally mirrored. Please read rows 10 to 18 as follows: sts 1 to 27 from right to left, and sts 28 to 56 from left to right

p 45 and 49 Nordic leaf mittens: Sizes women S(M,L). Rose pattern C: some sts should be worked with CC1 not MC in order to keep the rose symmetrical: sts 9 and 27/row 8 ; sts 16 and 20/ row 15; sts 15 and 21/ row 16

p 57 Perluband: Halldora beaded chart: extra line of beads on row 9 should be deleted and O letter is missing. As consequence, there are 14 rows missing in the blank chart as well and the row numbering should end with 221 not 207.
