Please...where do I find errata? I am.working on Florescence and it is a mess! Thank you.

Hi Ragath, we're sorry you weren't able to easily find the errata - you can find it here:
I am working on the Happenstance pattern by Jen Lucas. I am having a pattern issue with rows 3 through 6 of the Chart A of the pattern. Either I have 1 too many stitches on each needle, or I am 1 stitch too short. Are there any corrections to the pattern ??

Hi Rebecca, the shawl pattern you mention has no corrections. Please feel free to contact us at if you need further assistance and we'll be happy to help! --Jenny
Have downloaded your corrections and not all pages listed on cover sheet are included. Have made two shawls and have started "Garter Love" which is listed on the corrections but no page 30 in the group. Please advise, thanks,

Hi Kathy,

Thanks for your question. Page 2 of the corrections refers to working with patterns that have repeats and stitch markers. To clarify the method the author uses, see page 10 for more information on moving stitch markers. Other than that clarification, the Garter Love pattern can be worked as shown in the book. We hope this helps - but if you have more questions, please call us at 1-800-426-3126 and we’ll do our best to help. —Martingale customer service
I am starting the Briargate shawl. I don't see how the pattern can call for knitting on both the right and the wrong side of the body when the picture shows stockinette stitch. This also makes me nervous that the K2 yo and the K3 yo are also in error. I cannot find corrections online anywhere.

Hi Lindsey, please give us a call at 1-800-426-3126 and we'll try to help. Thanks for getting in touch!
"I can't get the lace pattern for Briargate shawl to work out. I have tried several times to knit it and the stitch count does not come out wright. In your correction pdf, it seems you do have to a correction available for the shawl but it is missing and there is only 7 pages. Is that correct. Please help.

Hi Bente, we’re sorry to hear about the trouble you’re having with the Briargate pattern. The charts listed on page 1 of the corrections aren’t errors—the text helps clarify how to use the charts. So to work the charts accurately, you’ll need to read the information regarding moving stitch markers and how lace charts work on page 10 of the book. In essence, sometimes you have to "borrow" a stitch from a previous repeat in order to make the stitch counts come out right. Reading the information on page 10 should clear that up. If you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to call us at 1-800-426-3126. Thanks for your question!
I can't seem to get chart A for timpani to work out. Both me and a friend have tried and the stitch count does not work out with either the chart or the written instructions. Please help.

Hi Louisa, we do have errata for that pattern, which you can download here: - The problem is addressed by carefully reading the information about moving stitch markers on page 10. If you still experience problems, feel free to contact us at or at 1-800-426-3126.
Two of us are making Happenstance and our stitch counts do not match the listed of 89 after the first repeat of chart A. Is there a correction? Thank you!

Hi Patricio, the shawl pattern you mention has no corrections. Please feel free to contact us at if you need further assistance and we'll be happy to help! --Jenny
While the patterns are lovely, I cannot for the life of me see how she gets these gauges ... 18 sts/in. with sock yarn on #4 needles????? Even SEVERELY blocked, I just don't see it happening.

Hi Nancy, all the patterns are gauged in increments of 4". For example, the first pattern, “Inflorescence,” says, “20 sts and 32 rows = 4" in St st.” The “Ardor” pattern says, “18 sts and 32 rows = 4" in garter st.” If you have further questions, please contact our customer service department at Many thanks for your inquiry. —Jenny
