What happened to row 17? And is row 15 really supposed to be the same as row 13? Thanks for any help you can give me.

What does the front of this shrug look like?

As happened before, the asterisks I typed in showed up during typing but did not show up in the subsequent comments. If you remember that only the first stitch and last stitch are outside the asterisks (eg the only ones not to be repeated in the sequence) you should be fine. I have also sent the corrections in AGAIN to customer service staff.

And again I see that the asterisks did not print--staffers were going to look into that also. Just remember that as printed above, the first and last stitches are the only ones not listed between the asterisks for repeat and you should be fine.

Hi Wendy, I feel badly about this because I sent the corrections to allfreeknitting staffers so they could edit the pattern and they have not done so. First off, the yarn is Aran/Worsted weight, NOT superfine. Rows 1 and 3 are correct as are Row 2 and all even rows. R5 k1, k3, yo, skp, k1, k2tog, yo, k2 repeat between until 1 st remains, k1. Row 7 k1, k4, yo, s2kp, yo, k3 repeat between until 1 st remains, k1. Rows 9, 11, 13, 15, and 17 are all correct and are, actually, all the exact same stitch pattern.

Hi there, Judith! I sent you an e-mail some time back asking for your pattern corrections and you never got back to me, or the e-mail never went through. Regardless, I just sent a follow-up e-mail, so hopefully we can get this corrected soon! Thanks in advance!

Hi Judith, I managed to figure the pattern out going by the sequence in the stitches. I left row 7 as is in the pattern and in row 5 did k1, k3, yo, sk2p, k2tog, yo, k2. It does reduce row 6 to K1, P72, k1 though, but still looks the same as image.

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

Hi Judith, I would like to corrections thanks.

Sorry i meant i would like to know the corrections please. Would you like my email address?

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.

how come I can download some patterns as a pdf file and others go to my knit file online? I am only allowed so much data usage and have to download from 12 midnite to 5 am. and I found a few I really wanted to work on later. Fay this is is really pretty

Sorry, the web address should read == ug.html

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.

bunnyknits : The front is very cute and delicate, you can see it on this website : and write "pendleton" in the search box. :)

The website you mentioned ( shows only the back, not the front. Maybe I have the wrong URL?

would love to see what the front looks like

Sue, have you tried to knit yet?
