  • Gerard’s Seaman’s Scarf:
    Most charts are written with Row 1 (and all odd numbered rows) being the right side.  However, some charts begin with Row 1 being on the wrong side.  You will begin reading the chart on the left hand side, with Row 1.  Row 2 of the chart is read from right to left as usual. Many lace charts begin on the wrong side. This simply gives you a “resting row” before starting any intricate patterning.

  • Undulating Scarf by Adriana Schoenberg, page 50
    We’re very sorry about the incorrect directions for making a center double decrease. The directions should be as follows: CDI = Center double increase. The CDI is made into one stitch: Knit into back and front of next stitch and then knit into back of vertical bar between those stitches. Further clarification: Once you’ve knit into the back and front of the stitch, there will be a tiny vertical strand between the 2 new stitches–lift that strand and put it on left needle and knit into back of it.  The increase makes a total of 3 sts where there had been 1 st before. It’s a special double increase.
