I'm having trouble making the frill on butterfly. It's just never gelled into a repeatable shape... I'm not certain where it falls apart for me, although I plan on spending this evening figuring it out. Are there any eratta out there for this pattern?Is there an obvious mistake that everyone makes right away?

I'm working a frill right now too!  I haven't seen any errata for the pattern, but it can be a tricky one.  Once you get into the swing of things, it gets easier.  I assure you the frill is the hardest part of the pattern.

For the frill, you don't really need to do the p3tog tbl, regular p3tog will work and is MUCH easier.  Also, you might want to count the stitches after each row the first few times through to make sure you are on track.  And, you kind of have to stretch out the pattern to really see what the repeat looks like.  You might already be doing those last two things, but I thought I'd suggest 'em anyway.

There is a knitalong thread about Butterfly that I think is really helpful.
