Addition to the pattern: Will be in 2nd edition of pattern
EZ's One Row Buttonhole: YO, k2tog buttonholes are fine for the BSJ, but for the Child's and Adult's versions, try this (from page 80 of EZ's Knitter's Almanac): "Slip1 as if to p. Wool fwd and leave it there. Slip 1 as if to p. Pass 1st slipped stitch over 2nd. Slip 1 as if to p. Pass 2nd slipped stitch over 3rd. Slip 1 as if to p. Pass 3rd slipped stitch over 4th. Put 4th stitch on L needle, twisting it. Twist last stitch on R needle. Pull wool tightly, lay over R needle from front to back and pass turned stitch over it. Make 4 firm backward loops over R needle, k2tog. KNIT ON."
Schoolhouse Press Bridget Rorem Near Solstice Pattern
Note: Needle size is 2 mm, which is a US 0.
We apologize for omitting Gauge information in Bridget Rorem's beautiful Near Solstice shawl (and it went through three editors!). Here is a note on the subject from Bridget:
Gauge: I have a measurement of 8 stitches and 14 rows to the inch. Of course, this is blocked, but I did not stretch it a great deal. Being garter, there is a lot of leeway in the rows-to-the-inch part. The widest part of my shawl measures about 78 inches.

"Notes on symmetry and borders:
Meg’s red and white version (her original design in 2002) uses the 9-stitch front border (chart 4b, p4). In order to perfectly balance the flower (chart 2) and diamond (chart 3) motifs, she did not include the 18 sts of the center-front borders in the circumference for her pattern-placement calculations. Because of this, her side seams are actually rotated toward the back by 4.5 sts (half of the ‘extra’ 9 sts of the border on each front).
Later, when designing the blue and white version, she took this into account, and made a new 12-stitch border (chart 1, which is half the stitch count of the flower chart 2), which she then included in the pattern-placement calculations. The borders from each front edge add together as 24 stitches, or the width of a full flower - that way, she had 5 flowers on the back and 5 (actually 4, plus the flower-width borders) on the front.
Because of this unique relationship between chart 1 and chart 2, after knitting the 12 border-sts, she could begin knitting at the right edge of chart 2, and the center back of the sweater aligned with the center stitch (stitch 13) of chart 2.
This relationship was not true for chart 1 and chart 3 (which is 30 sts wide), which is why the right edge of the diamond motif on the blue and white version does not line up exactly with the front border, unlike on the red and white version.
So, when knitting chart 3, begin on stitch 13 (as described in the example round on p2), to allow for the 12 border sts and still have the center of the diamond at the center-back. When kitting chart 2, you can do the same thing - or, because chart 2 is twice the border width, you may begin at the right edge of the chart and the motif will still be centered at the back - knitter’s choice.”

Correction on p. 34
Should read "Multiple of 12 sts plus 3"
Should read "Multiple of 16 sts plus 3"
The text is correct for you to Cast On 66 sts - but the diagram is in error; it should indicate 66 stitches for the Cast on and 44 stitches for each of the sides.
Please also download the errata with previous corrections.
Vogue 2006 Spring/Summer issue
Wool Gathering 56-Spiral and Inner Directed Lace Shawls
Wool Gathering 77-Double V-Vest
The chart in WG#77 has some un-necessary purl stitches stuck in.
Row 4 and 8 plus their repeat on rows 12 and 20: please eliminate the tiny purl stitches at the cross-over points.There are Kb stitches crossing over Kb stitches, so no purls are displaced.
Wool Gathering 79 (SPP4)-EZ Yoke Sweaters Anniversary Issue
Wool Gathering 80-5 Hats
Dear Knitter, I failed to describe the horizontal lines in the charts on page 12 of WG#80: The horizontal lines on Motif 1 indicate cables. The lines are broken in the middle of the 16-stitch repeat - and each group of 8 is divided in half by a vertical line. The right-hand group has an arrow to the right - which means the second group of 4 are traveling to the right over the first group of four. With a left arrow on the 2nd group of 8, reverse the above: cable the middle 4 over the outside 4 to the left. As you work the cable, maintain continuity of stitches (k1b and p).
Durer Hat: With thanks to Roberta Preston for finding the mistakes in row 4 and row 6 (one too many sts before the pair of single decreases)
Wool Gathering 81-Swedish Delsbo Jacket
