Caesar's Check Woes
Dark: Koigu KPM #1017
Light: Koigu KPPPM #P800
Hello everyone. I'm new to your group. I found the KAL while searching for errata for this pattern I'm working on for Caesar's Check. The heel flap is all jacked up. I've solved a couple of the problems in the heel flap instructions:
Row 4 should start with P3, rather than K3
Rows 3 and 4, the first three stitches should be knit with dark, and not light.
I'm still working on my issues with the slip stitch pattern. I continue to get a "checkerboard" effect, rather than the vertical stripe. I'm thinking I need to have an uneven number of stitches rather than the even 34 I'm working on. So, that's my next attempt at a possible solution!
I've also emailed the publisher. I couldn't believe it but I actually got an initial reply in less than 24 hours! That has to be a good sign. I'll let you all know how that goes.
