The pattern has some errors. I emailed the designer and she is going to post a correction. Until then, here’s the scoop …… the problem occurs when adding the waist detail. There must be an odd number of stitches between the front columns of twisted rib and the back column in order for the waist twisted rib to continue seamlessly in the pattern stitch. From what I can tell, the error occurs in three of the sizes; medium, 2x and 3x. Rather than rip back, I am going to decrease with some well placed p2tog’s to make this work.
This however, brings me to a larger question ……. and it is not limited to this project only and is not meant in anyway to be a criticism of the designer who was very kind to come up with a great looking project and share it for free with the rest of us!
This is meant to be a ~gentle~ criticism of the rest of us! When you come upon an error in a pattern and you know exactly how to correct it, do you nonetheless contact either the designer or the publisher to let them know? Do you even bother posting it to either your blog or your Ravelry page? Or do you just knit along and barely register the blip? In our little Internet world and with the beautiful resource that is Ravelry, doesn’t it make sense to take the time (which is not that great an amount) to raise a flag? I just thought of this possibility — do you just assume the error is yours, some kind of flaw in your knitting and don’t investigate whether there was a problem with the patterm??
Am I some kind of pattern vigilante?
