I wonder if anyone who has made the clover wrap can offer some help. I'm a little confused with the pattern description, on the right front i see there have been corrections made on the official site and the number of stitches have changed, but i don't seem to match them up the stitches after the increases are made to reduce as much as described and still follow the pattern.

The corrections here:

Right front:

Pattern reads: Inc 1 st at waist edge of next row, then every following 7th row 6 times more 94(107, 120, 133, 146) sts

Pattern should say: Inc 1 st at waist edge of next row, then every following 7th row 6 times more 64(73, 86, 98, 112) sts

But the pattern i'm looking at does not match up with the corrections, and nothing else is corrected on this particular piece.

Am i missing something, i'm not sure what i should be doing for the right front now... am in need of some expert knitter advice  Grin

Thanks to anyone who may be able to point me in the right direction.

I went ahead and did the right front piece as directed from the book as the corrections for the pattern didn't make sense. I'm doing the large size, and on the part i was confused says i should have 133 stitches, and the corrections stated there should be 98... i just don't know how the pattern jumps down to them stitches, unless a big chunk is missing.

Well, did the right front and its much longer than the back piece. I guess i could do my own corrections, but this is my first sweater and not advanced enough to make them changes, so it is alittle frustrating that the pattern isn't reading right. I will have to think about what to do or come across something somewhere... i really love this sweater so i'm determined to get it right  Smiley

I'm late to the party...

But, I know many people who have knit this have had many frustrations.  I found this blog, which may help you:


Googling "lucky clover wrap" (with the quotation marks) yielded a plethora of blogs of people who have knit this.  The designer also has a blog, you might poke around that a little.  I think it's neoknits.blogspot.com.

I've been meaning to knit this for ages, but just haven't gotten around to it!  Good luck!

Thanks  Smiley

The link to the blog site has really helped, glad to know it isn't just me that the neckline on the clover wrap came up with some errors, and the site gives the solution, phew! lets hope this works  Smiley

Thanks again for the help  Grin
