The sock strikes again. I’m now on the second sock, the right foot, which has completely different charts. In addition to the math not working out for the repeating section of the top of foot chart I have found two mistakes so far. First there’s a line of four purl stitches in the middle of the cable pattern that should be knit stitches on row 17. Then on row 31 there’s a missing decrease before the cable pattern starts. It’s the only way that row makes sense.
I looked through the project notes on Ravelry for many of the projects from this pattern and NO ONE mentions these mistakes. Am I the only one knitting the small size? I didn’t really check on that factor that I remember. Was everyone else so enamored with the designer that they were loathe to correct her and just quietly made the corrections themselves? Am I the victim of gaslighting? Who knows.
Pattern once again is Legolas Socks by Claire Ellen. DO NOT knit these unless you really know what you’re doing and know how to fudge things to make them work and find and correct mistakes in charts. I’ve been told I’d be a good test knitter/tech editor. This was clearly not tech edited. I’m hate-knitting it at this point.
