The Big Book of Socks- Candelabra Lace Sock Pattern Errata

Thanks to an alert knitter, we've uncovered an error in The Big Book of Socks (link to the right of the page) in the Caldelabra Lace Sock pattern. I'm going to post the errata here, and over to the right in the Errata section. Taunton will fix the error in the next printing of the book.

The Big Book of Socks- Page 114, Cendelabra Lace Sock

In the Candelabra Lace Pattern Rnd 5 should read:

Rnd 5: K5, K 2 tog, YO, K1, YO, Sl 1, K1, PSSO, K4

I left out the second YO in the written lace pattern. I am so sorry for the error, and so glad for sharp-eyed knitters.

The YO was also left out on "Diamond Rib Lace Sock" Page 115 under -Diamond Rib Lace Pattern- Rnd 5: YO, Sl 1, K1, PSSO, K2, "YO," Sl 1, K1, PSSO, K2, k2 tog, YO, K2

The first socks I made came from Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's "Knitting Rules". Just her "talking" about making socks made sense!! I'm now making my second set of socks for my great-niece from your book "The Big Book of Socks" - yes the Diamond Rib Lace Sock on Page 115! Thank you for all of the wonderful sock patterns and letting us know about any "errors". I'm going to look for more of you books!

Classic Worsted Cable Sock pattern -
cable pattern rnd 3 P1, K4, P1, 2LT, 2Rt however when I do this on the instructions it says for 2LT to place a Knit Stitch on cable needle but I have a Purl Stitch there - are they backwards?

Yes, the errata listed to the right of this page reads as follows: Classic Worsted Cable Sock Pattern-
Page 91
the instructions should read:

Cable Pattern Rnd 3: *P1, K4, P1, 2RT, 2LT*
Cable Pattern Rnd 4: *P1, K4, P1, 2LT, 2RT*
