I contacted the designer and have the corrections for this pattern if anyone is interested, please let me know.


Feb 11, 2015

This pattern has multiple errors so beware if you try to knit it. The yarn is not superfine 1 weight, it is aran/worsted weight according to the designer page on Ravelry. There is an error in Row 5 which results in wrong of stitches for that row. The Finishing area has an incomplete sentence, thus incomplete pattern info. Anyone have the answers to these issues? I'd love to hear back. The pattern is no longer available on Ravelry or any other website that I can find. The links above are not operational.

This is really beautiful. Thank you for sharing. The FRONT is shown if you go to the website mentioned above, ( == s-et-gilets/tillitomas-pendletonshrug.html) and click on download pattern. Unfortunately the pattern is in French but the photographs show both the front and back of the shrug.
