Ann Budd Handy Book of Knitting Patterns
Hi! I am brand new to this forum and can't wait to join in! I've got a question about the raglan sweater pattern in this book. I know a bunch of you probably have this book and I would love to hear what you have to say! On page 145 in the top right column it says to rep dec every rnd, working decs on WS rows as *purl to 2 sts before m, p2tog....
My question is if I am knitting in the round on circular needles how do I have a "WS" row and how can I purl to the end? Thanks!

A purl stitch on the WS is the same as a knit stitch on the RS.

did I mention I'm a cheap S.O.B.?
I know the voices are trying to tell me something, but all I can hear is blah, blah, blah

There is errata on the Interweave Press site for this book. You're right.
