Hi. I have a small errata for the Butterfly mittens on the Butterfly Quilt and Butterfly Quilt 2 charts. The mittens will work out fine if you knit them exactly as in the pattern. But… technically, there should only be one plain row of knits on chart row 10 and one on chart row 20, […]

I’m almost done with the modernized/Americanized cable butterfly chart that I’m redoing for you. And […]
