Beware if buying for the Heather Hoodie Vest pattern,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Best Of Knitscene (Paperback)
Feeling thoroughly frustrated and annoyed with this book. I bought it for the Heather Hoodie Vest pattern but having spent about 5 hours today trying to execute the first 22 rows of the cable, I'm going to rip it out and look for something else to knit with my bulky yarn.
There are errata on the publisher's website, but these refer to only one error - it's in the set-up row. The good folks on Ravelry helped me identify more errors in the chart key: one of the 'hold in FRONT' directions should actually read 'hold in BACK', and k3 or p3 should read k2 or p2 respectively throughout the chart.
I learned also from Ravelry that the original magazine pattern or the pdf you can buy from the site contains the first, set-up row error, but not the chart errors, so possibly that could work out a better deal.
I'm an experienced knitter but even having identified all these errors and written in my corrections, I couldn't get the cables to look like the ones in the pictures.
Maybe other patterns in the book will work out okay and I'll end up getting some sort of value out of it, but there's no excuse for the sloppiness of this particular pattern. Save your money.
