Your edition of this book may contain errors in the following patterns; the corrections for these errors appear in bold type:
The Faggoting Stitch chart should be a 6-st repeat, not an 8-st repeat (the written instructions on page 85 are correct). To see the revised chart, click here.
Under RIGHT MITT, HAND, the instructions should read as follows: Cast-on is worked flat. Using A and smaller (larger) needles, cast on 25 sts as follows: CO 5 using the cable CO (see Special Techniques, page 000). * BO 2 sts, slip st on right-hand needle back to left-hand needle, CO 4 sts using Cable CO; repeat from * 10 more times, BO 2 sts, slip st back to left-hand needle—25 sts. All sts now on left-hand needle.

Helen & Wendy’s Slippers
Under Gauge, Helen’s Version should be 20 sts and 20 rows = 4″ (10 cm) in Garter stitch. (Wendy’s Version is correct as is.)
