I received the same errata from Melanie Falick at:
mfalick@hnabooks.com

I have started a Yahoo group on Knitting Nature where I have posted her errata info.
The link for the group is:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/knittingnature/

I started knitting the basalt tank, and found the inside rows (Rows 9, 11, 13, 15, and 17: Purl)

should be purled, but I was already going on the hexagon two, and I do not want to rip it out.

wow. I'm soo glad I decided to hold off on buying this until there's a second printing. It's a gorgeous book, and I really want to make a few things in it... but errors in EVERY chapter? I can't imagine what a nightmare that must be.

Has anyone figured out how to correct the glaring error on the right front of the Shell Tank? I'm so frustrated with it!!
My name is Janice. I posted a blog back in January and no one seems to have come up with any answers, though they've expressed a lot of frustration as well.

I am currently working on the Branching Aran Guernsey sweater and I found a mistake in the cabling pattern. Make sure you do the math before working on the cabling, it should work out with 4 repeats, not 4.5.
I am now on the front of the sweater and trying my hardest to understand the shoulder. The language is very confusing, can anyone offer any suggestions?
Thanks

That's not all --

The diamond tunic (p. 100) has an error in the neckline instructions. It tells you to bind off 5 (for size M), work 60, join another ball and bind off 32 for the neck, work to the end. This leaves only 30 or so stitches for the rest of the shoulder -- either it's meant to be lopsided or it's wrong.

Hi, I'm working on the Ram's Horn Jacket and am totally confused. The front band according to the instructions is moss stitch, but the picture looks like stocking stitch. It also says to use 21 stitches, but the picture looks mmore like 9. Can anyone shed any light? Cheers.
