Smock Top Sweater Correction

December 22

A few days ago I was knitting with my buddies at my LYS. In came a gal who was knitting my Smock Top Sweater design, as seen in Knotions magazine. It felt so good to actually know someone who’s making my pattern. My little glow of pride was quickly dashed when she pointed out that there is an  error in the pattern. Two lines were swapped. Uhg.

For those of you who have already gotten the pattern from Knotions, please note the corrected lines for the Back section of the pattern should read:

2. For sizes 30, 38, 45.5, and 53” / 76, 96.5, 115.5 and 135.5 cm only:
 K2, *p2, k2; rep from * to end.
For sizes 34, 41.5, and 49.5” / 86.5, 105.5, 125.5 cm only:
K1, p1, *k2, p2; rep from * to last 4 sts, k2, p1, k1.

For those of you who have already started knitting,  before the armholes start you can just flip the work over so the WS and RS are reversed for the back and for the front. Your selvedge stitch will be a purl stitch, but everything else should work out all right.

I’m so sorry for the inconvenience.

The new pattern can be found on the Smock Top Sweater page.

    Thank you for writing, Judy!
    “Wrap and turn” refers to short-row shaping. The best reference I can think of to learn this technique is in Nancie Wiseman’s book, The Knitter’s Book of Finishing Techniques starting on page 72. If you’d like to see video instructions, you can check out the Knit Picks video on YouTube here:
    Good luck with your short rows!
