View Full Version : Error in pattern?

04-28-2008, 12:24 AM
These are the instructions in this pattern (http://www.berroco.com/186/186_estelle.html):

Cast on 118(142-162) sts.
Row 1(RS): K2TBL, * p2, k2TBL, rep from * across.
Row 2: P2, * k2TBL, p2, rep from * across. Rep these 2 rows 3 times more, dec 1(3-1) sts on last row. Continue in Cable/Lace Pat on 117(139-161) sts until piece measures 13" from beg, end on WS.

When they say K2TBL, they actually mean KTBL2, right? Instead of doing K2P2 rib, we are doing KTBL2P2 ribbing. Am I correct?

Should I contact berroco and ask them to include this in the errata?

Yes, knit the 2 stitches individually tbl to make a twisted rib. It's not an error, just a different way of writing it. I suppose they could make it a little more clear....

Oh! It sure is confusing. I thought it was an accidental mistake.

Maybe if it weren't in caps it would be easier to see, but if it were k2tog, then it would be written - K2TOG TBL. Since `tog' isn't included, you don't.

Yeah, you are right. The problem here was with my interpretation. If I look at the knitting help glossary, it lists this as 'k2tog tbl'. I am so used to seeing k2tog, when I read k2tbl, I assumed it meant k2 together through the back loop. Thanks for clarifying, suzeeq.

Berrocco also has a glossary of terms used in their pattern; sometimes they may differ a little.

I did check their glossary. They have an entry for tbl, but none for k2tbl. That just added to the confusion :)

In that case you would read the line as k2 separately tbl.
