Many of the projects are variations on timeless classics. Beginning knitters in particular might find this to a valuable collection of pattern essentials: basic socks, hats, mittens and sweaters.

Red Herring Scarf: Pattern Correction

January 6th, 2007 | Comments Off

The original pattern contained an error in row 3 of the herringbone stitch w/moss stitch border pattern. It should read:

Row 3: k1, p1, k1, k1, [k2, inc 1, k2, k2tog] until last 3 stitches, k1, p1, k1

A corrected version of the pattern can be downloaded from the Red Herring Scarf pattern page.

Sorry for the inconvenience, and please help me spread the word!
