Just to clarify, the pattern is correct as written; I'm not sure why you would need to add a p3, as the stitch counts add up correctly already.

Did anyone answer qpdbug? The answer is: The set-up row is repeated 7 times ending with a RS row.  THEN you start the "Next Row" on the WS.

There is an error on that "Next Row" where you increase by 4 stitches: After working the patt to the last 43 sts, p3, [M1, p10] 2 times, M1 p3:sl m, ...."  The pattern left out the very important "p3" after the M1.


Hope this helps anyone who is making this sweater.  I am enjoying the process and love the look of the sweater.  If anyone has finished it and found other errors, PLEASE let me know.

The first two rows of instructions (Set-up row & Next row) are both wrong side (WS)?  Am I missing something?  At the end of the Set-up row instructions it says "Work 7 rows in patt, ending with a RS row"  So should I do the set-up row 8 times and do the even rows in "reverse" so they are ribbed? 

Any help is appreciated.  Thanks.
