I just started knitting the Aran Christmas Stocking from VK Holiday 2006 and noticed a mixup with the charts. Here are the corrections they sent (quite promptly, I might add).
Vogue Knitting Holiday ’06 #1 Stocking, photo on page 65, instrux begin on page 104
Chart 1, rnd 10 – sts 9 and 10 should be purl sts.
Chart 1 and Chart 2 were transposed in rnd 5 of instrux. For those of you knitting this stocking for the holidays, we apologisefor the delay. The following is a two-part correction. Please follow #1 if you have not yet begun to knit. Please follow #2 if you have knit up to rnd 79 with the incorrect chartplacement and are ready to work the heel flap. The correction willreposition the cables to match the photo.
LegRnd 5 *Work rnd 1 of Chart 2, sl marker, work rnd 1 of Left TwistCable, sl marker, work 5 sts seed st, sl marker, work rnd 1 of RightTwist Cable, sl marker, work rnd 1 of Chart 1, sl marker, work rnd 1 ofLeft Twist Cable, work 5 sts in seed st, sl marker, work rnd 1 of RightTwist Cable, sl marker; rep from * once. Continue in pattern as written from this point.
LegRdn 79 (set up for heel) Work in pats as established across first 102sts.
Heel flap: Slipping markers as you come to them, work in pats as established on rem22 sts, plus first 40 sts – 62 sts, rearranging sts on 2 needles. Turn and work across 62 sts in pats as established, turn. Continue in pattern as written from this point.
Fortunately, I noticed it only 60sts into round 5 and didn’t need to tink much. Hope this helps anyone else out there knitting it!
