Blue Diamond Lace Scarf Errata
Hello my fellow knitters,
As you know, I designed a beautiful scarf for my friend, Carol Sulcoski’s book, Lace Yarn Studio. The scarf was named the Blue Diamond Lace Scarf and I am sorry to say that there is a little bit of errata for the pattern.

The mistake is when you transition from the first lace bit to the second lace. If you do as written you will not have the right number of stitches. The pattern should read:
Transition Chart (multiple of 12 sts plus 1, minimum 25 sts)
Row 1 (RS): K2tog, k3, yo, k1, yo, ssk, * yo, k3, s2psso, k3, yo, k2tog, yo, k1; rep from * to last 5 sts, yo, k3, ssk.
Row 2 and all even-numbered rows: Purl.
Row 3: K2tog, k2, yo, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, * ssk, yo, k2, s2psso, k2, yo, k2tog, yo, k1, yo; rep from * to last 6 sts, ssk, yo, k2, ssk.
Row 5: K2tog, k1, yo, k2tog, yo, k3, * yo, ssk, yo, k1, s2psso, k1, yo, k2tog, yo, k3; rep from * to last 5 sts, yo, ssk, yo, k1, ssk.
Row 7: [K2tog, yo] twice, k5, * yo, ssk, yo, s2psso, yo, k2tog, yo, k5; rep from * to last 4 sts, [yo, ssk] twice.
Row 9: K1, * k2tog, yo, k7, yo, ssk, k1; rep from * to end.
Row 10: Purl.
I’m am also including a new chart to help those who are more visual (like me)
Anyway, I am so sorry for the mistake and I hope that if you are making this pattern you will share with me your progress.
Thank you for this errata- I am knitting this scarf for my daughter for Christmas – having bought the book and buffalo wool at the Maryland sheep and wool show in May . As I am now back in the uk I was at a loss when the pattern didn’t work! I have now finished the transition and it looks good.
