Some versions contain an error on Round 21, page 2 of the pattern. This line should read: Round 21: P1, 2/1 LPC, p2, 2/2 RC, p2, 2/1 RPC, p1.
In Baby Leg Chart, Row 13 has a blank square (knit st) that should contain a dash (purl st). Count over 15 squares from the right, just after four knit sts.
The chart key for the Heel/Instep charts is incorrect for the Purl symbol. That line should read: Purl 1 stitch on RS rows, knit 1 stitch on WS rows.
Under “Cuff”, the line “Repeat this round 5 times more.” should appear under instructions for large sportweight / medium fingering weight size.
