Raccoon Jacket (page 54)
The panel #7 directions beginning at the bottom of the first column on page 57 should read: “Panel 7: Change to gray/black. Work as for left body panel 7, reversing shaping and working short-rows on WS Rows 5, 7, and 9–72 (77, 79, 81) sts rem.
Completely CUT the entire last sentence at the end of panel #7, the sentence that reads “On Row 10, BO… work to end—44 sts.”
The beginning of the next section should read: “Panels 8, 9, and 10: Work as for left body panels 8, 9, and 10, omitting the BO in Row 1 of panel 8. On Row 2 of panel 8, BO 29 (34, 36, 38) sts, knit to end–43 sts rem. Cont as for left body panels, reversing shaping, and working short rows on Rows 5, 7, and 9…”
Additionally, the instructions for the sleeve (page 58) are missing a section. After working the Contrasting band and before Shape cap right edge, insert the following: “V” fill:
Row 1: (RS) Knit to center m, sl m, wrap next st, turn.
Row 2: Purl to center m, sl m, wrap next st, turn.
Row 3: Knit to 1 st beyond center m, wrap next st, turn.
Row 4: Purl to 1 st beyond center m, wrap next st, turn.
Row 5: Knit to 2 sts beyond center m, wrap next st, turn.
Row 6: Purl to 2 sts beyond center m, wrap next st, turn.
Cont in this manner, working 1 st more beyond center m on each RS row before wrapping and turning, and working the same number of sts beyond center m on the foll WS row. On the final 2 rows you will end having just wrapped the edge sts. Next row: (RS) After turning for last wrapped st, knit to end. On the foll row, purl across all sts—41 (44, 46, 46) sts. Cont with Shape cap right edge as written.

Row 37 of the charts for Lily of the Valley and Birch Leaves charts (page 28) are incorrect. For Lily of the Valley, Row 37 should be worked as foll: K16, k2tog, k1—18 sts. For there to be the correct number of sts before the dec, the box to the right of the k2tog symbol should be gray to indicate “no stitch.” For Birch Leaves, Row 37 should be worked as foll: K9, sl 1 kwise, k2tog, psso, k6, k2tog, k1—18 sts. For there to be the correct number of sts before and between the decs, the boxes on each side of the double dec symbol and the box to the right of the k2tog symbol should be gray to indicate “no stitch.”
