Artisania Jacket
 (fixed - 2/14/2011)
The first printing of this pattern lists variable yardage amounts at the bottom of the Materials section, even though the pattern is "one size fits all." These amounts should not be there and have been removed for subsequent printings.

The necessary yardage to make this jacket is:

800 yds. of Autumn House Farm's Artisania yarn.

Inge's Driftwood Cardigan
 (fixed & modified - 10/20/2010)
On some of the patterns printed, the gauge was not listed. Below it the correct gauge for this pattern.

Gauge: 4.5 sts and 6 rows = 1" in stockinet

Sea Island Shell
(fixed & modified - 7/1/2010)
There is a duplicate paragraph in the 'Begin Neck Shaping' section that should not be there. This paragraph has been removed and changes have also been made to clarify the process in creating the neck and finishing the front of the shell. This section now reads as follows...

Begin Neck Shaping
The sides of the neck are worked separately up to the shoulder and then bound off.
Work 43 (48, 55, 60) sts. Turn, and leaving remaining stitches on the needle,  bind off 2 sts at what is now the neck edge. Work these stitches decreasing at the neck edge 3 more times. Decrease 1 st at the neck edge every other row 9 (9, 10, 10) times. Continue in stockinet until the piece measures 22.5 (23.5, 24.5, 25) Row 150 (158, 166, 170).

RS: Working this and every other row at the shoulder edge;
Bind off 2 (2, 3, 2) sts 
Bind off 2 (2, 3, 3) sts
Bind off 3 (3, 3, 3) sts.
Bind off 7 (7, 9, 8) sts.

Return to the stitches on the needle, attach yarn to the armhole edge and reverse shaping for the opposite side of the neck leaving the center neck sts on the needle or a holder.

Turkish Carpet Cardigan (fixed & modified - 10/20/2010)
On some of the patterns printed, under the 'Left Front Neck Shaping' two lines were missing from the bottom of page 2. The missing lines read as follows...

Work 3 rows without shaping, then switch to C1 and work 3 more rows. Bind off loosely purlwise.
These six rows will create the front button band. Do not work the back when working these 6 rows.

Also, on this pattern, the following note (shown in red) was added to clarify some confusion when attaching the second sleeve stitches to the body.


Leaving the sleeve sts on the left needle, and with Color 2, using the long tail cast on method, cast on 38 (38, 40) sts on to the right needle. Then attach to the sleeve sts and work 29 (30, 32) sts of the sleeve, place a marker (shoulder seam) work the remaining sts. then using the backwards loop cast-on method, cast on 38 (38, 40) for a total of 134 (136, 144). Work 4 rows of moss st.

Note: If your preferred method of casting on is to ’knit on’ the stitches, knit the appropriate number of stitches on to the left needle. Do not turn. Knit across these cast on stitches, then attach to the sleeve stitches and follow the remaining directions.
