Wonderful Message Regarding Haiku Knits

Ripened Wheat


I have been receiving wonderful reviews and messages regarding my book, but this particular one really warmed my heart.

Tanya, I received your beautiful book today posted all the way to Sydney, Australia and just want to let you know that I’m in love!
There’s no-one else offering such fabulous Japanese inspired designs - not even Habu themselves!
Your shaping, structure, patterning and colours should appeal to many.
I can not wait to start on Ripened Wheat and Chrysanthemum.
Again, thank you for the serenity, beauty and light you’ve provided. I hope I can do you some justice…
Kind regards

Clear Water Lacy Scarf from Haiku Knits

Here is the solution to the problem with this pattern.

Somewhere, somehow there were an extra 2 sts in the pattern. We don't know when, why and how, but ...it happened.

The pattern should read:

CO 34 sts. Begin Lace Patt.

Row 1: K2, pm, *yo, sl 1, k1, psso k5, repeat from * to last 4 sts, yo, k2tog, pm, k2

Row 2 (and all even rows): all correct

Row 3, 5, 7, 9, 11: should have "K2,..." instead of K4 in the beginning.

Now, this should works.

Clear Water Lacy Scarf

After two technical editors and several people, including myself, have knitted this simple lacy scarf, we have one typo. Oh well, such as life...

In the very beginning of the project it should say:

"CO 36 sts. Begin lace patt." (instead of 34 sts.) Page 37.

Make sure that you place your markers after 2 sts in the beginning, and before 2 sts at the end. Those sts are your border sts, and they don't count into your lace pattern.

Good luck! It should be O.K. now, and if not...let me know.
