Erica sent a message noticing an errata:
“There appears to be a mistake on rows 13 & 15 of the Leaves of Lace pattern. Both rows, if you count the stitches on the pattern add up to 16, not 15 in each repeat. Can you take a peak and just tell me if the last K’s should be just decreased by 1 stitch? Thank you”

HI Erica I just fixed this: instead of : Row 13: k1, *ssk, p2, k2, yo, k1, yo, k1, p2, k2tog, k1*
It’s Row 13: k1, *ssk, p2, k2, yo, k1, yo, k2, p2, k2tog, k1*

Thank you for noting that!

I have been having the same problem as Erica with row 15 as well. I too am wondering if the last K3tog should actually be a K2tog. Could you take a look again? Thanks!

Hi Jennifer,

I just finished knitting this pattern up again and you are right, it is k2tog, I will change it.
I went through it all again and tripled checked and knitted it with the instructions off the page so we should be right with this one now!

Thanks you so much for your help!!

Hi again,
There is still a problem with row 15. I think the ssk should be repeated (within the asterisk). I ended up with several extra stitches as I am repeated the pattern several times within one row. Would you mind checking it again? Thanks!

Hi Jennifer!
I figured it out, it ends in k3tog, so it’s: ssk, * p2, k3, yo, k1, yo, k3, p2, k3tog* – but here is the thing, on the last round at the end of the row it finishes in k2tog instead of k3tog.

I’m looking for a baby layette set with this pattern. I made 1 24 years ago when my girl was born and I dont have the pattern anymore , I’m not sure if it was a Patons pattern. All I can remember was the jacket had a collar . Many Thanks . Ally (Australian Knitter)
