Go to Magknits.com then at the bottom of the page there's an Archive link, there you'll see the pattern category ("knit us") and the pattern is called Hug.

Hi all - I'm the designer of the Hug pattern....one of you kindly let me know there were queries about the pattern on here, so I've come over here to try and help.  I feel really bad about this and have no idea how it happened (well me being not observant enough I guess) but there are mistakes in the pattern.
When I wrote it I made row by row notes, so I think in condensing it to a real pattern mistakes crept in.  I have gone over the notes, and these are the mistakes:

Firstly the rib pattern - the * is misplaced - it should be:

Rib Pattern
Row 1: *k2 (p2, k2), p2 (k2, p2)*, rep to last 2 sts, k2 (p2, k2)
Row 2: *p2 (k2, p2), k2 (p2, k2)*, rep to last 2 sts, p2 (k2, p2)
These 2 rows set the rib pattern.

So basically you are doing k2 p2 rib, but starting with k2 for the small and large, and starting with p2 for the medium.

Next up is the beginning of the pattern, which misses two rows out.
It should say:

Following stripe patt, CO 34(38, 42) in A and work 2 rows in rib

And finally, before the armholes, it should say:

Work 11 more rows (before the cast off rows).

So the second sleeve and the back are ok, but the first sleeve is wrong.

I am super super sorry about this - I didn't notice and then some other people made nice looking hugs so I didn't realise until someone emailed me.  I have emailed Kerrie (the editor) the corrections.

I hope it hasn't caused too many people too much hassle  Embarrassed

Thanks so much Jen,
I just assumed I should work a row or two before starting the decreases on the sleeve, so no big deal. And to tell you the truth, I've run into bigger and badder mistakes (in patterns I've paid money for, at that)  Wink
Thanks again!

Almost done finished my shrug!  Grin I had some issues with the decreasing and increasing and not I have a 4x4 rib on one side.. what kind of decreases did you guys do? There wasn't anything specified so I just tried to do be consistent, but there is probably a way to do it-a formula-so that things look the same on both sides?

I used K2tog myself (or P2tog to keep the rib pattern going if needed)
seemed to work out just fine.

or just for finished objects/goods:

Wow, Tere, you are a knitting queen!  I can't believe you are already nearly finished!  I want to make the shrug as well.  I need to order some yarn for it though.  I just ordered everything I needed for my hourglass sweater last night (I'm doing that first instead of the kyoto)

Can't wait to see your shrug!

  Thanks so much for coming over here and mapping it all out for us!

This project has caused too much frustration.

I have decided to scrap it. My gauge must be off, even though I continue to measure. It is just soooooooooo long. It reaches over to my other arm, and I haven't even started the back part!

Good luck to everyone else, though!

I cast this on last night and I'm about half-way done already.  I like that it's coming along so quickly.  I'm using cheap black acrylic from Wal-mart but it feels nice.  I'm using size 10 US needles because I'm too cheap to go out and buy 10.5s so I cast on enough stitches for the large size.  I figure I'd rather have it a bit big than too small.  I didn't bother to check my guage but it's looking about right so far, I'm sure it'll turn out fine.  I'll post pictures as soon as I finish.

xtreme-jen - thanks so much for posting the corrections here.... they've been mighty helpful.  I postponed starting this project for so long because the directions on magknits seemed kind of vague, but after reading your clarifications, I decided to go for it.  Thanks!

I thought you guys might find the sketch for Hug useful - it wasn't included on the original pattern......I hope this works - it's a large gif so if it looks squashed up and rubbish I'll delete the post and try again later!
I saw lots of people saying their Hug's look ridiculously long.....well that's nothing to worry about - it will be the length of 2 long sleeves (they are meant to come down over your hands) and the width between your shoulders as well!  Also bear in mind that when rib is squashed up it is longer than when it's flattened out, so the piece will look even longer that it really is.  As long as your tension is ok then you're fine   Smiley
