Foxglove, Rowan Supplement, page 24

The pattern image printed on page 24 and throughout for Marie Wallin’s Foxglove pattern is incorrect. The image above shows the correct design the pattern will knit to.

      I'm so sorry about this, Patricia. If you email us, we can send you the pattern.

    I love this magazine. It's lovely to find patterns that go beyond 36/38 bust. Keep up the good work and can't wait for my next copy to arrive. Merry Christmas to you all.

    I am working on the Firre Socks from Issue 96, and I think the instructions for rows 1-8 of the instep are incorrect. I’m working the large size so I’m working over 36 stitches, but both the chart and written instructions show 1 st + an 8 stitch repeat done 3 times, which is 25 stitches. Even if I’m reading the repeat instructions incorrectly and I should be doing that part 4 times total, that would be 33 stitches. Can you please advise?

      Hi Katie, I've just taken a look at this and I do think you're right. I'll refer this to our designer and tech editor now and will update the blog post as soon as we've heard from them.

      Hi Katie, I've referred this to the tech editor and she's wondering if you've missed some of the instructions which tell you how to work the charts: Rnd 1 and all odd-numbered rnds: Work Instep patt from chart or written instructions, k to end. Rnds 2, 4, 6 & 8: Work Instep patt from chart or written instructions, k4 (1, 4), ssk, k to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1. 2 sts dec’d Rnds 10, 12 & 14: K3 (2, 3), work Instep patt, k4 (1, 4), ssk, k to last 3 sts, ssk, k1. 2 sts dec’d

        Yes, that’s it. I put my BOR marker in the wrong spot and ignored the written instructions as basic gusset decrease instructions. Thanks for your help and patience!
