Knit Challenge!
Pattern section of an Afghan called "Chevron and Feather" calls for 13 sts plus 1 extra to be knit as follows:

Row 1: (RS) *K1, yo, W, k2tog, ssk, k4, yo; rep from * to last st, k1

Row 2: purl.

First, I cannot find the meaning of "W" anywhere (not even in the terms in the book).

Second, I cannot get 13+1 sts to work out in this Row 1 pattern.
Help!

WOW! I never knew about erratas... the "W" should be k4. THANKS MUCH!!!

Have you looked for errata on the pattern? Where is the pattern coming from?

Hi and welcome to KH! There might be an error with the pattern...can you give us the book you got it from or website? The name of the pattern? We may be able to search for an errata for you or see if anyone else had issues with the pattern...

Pattern comes from a book on 'Easy Afghans' by Family Circle Magazine.
The original pattern was printed in the magazine in the Fall issue of '04.

Never heard of an errata.... The name of the pattern is "Portable Throw' (designed by Ann Regis). from Family Circle - Fall -04.
What is an irrata?
Thanks for the help!
