I'm working on one of the front pieces for my Prepster and having some confusion.  My book says to work even until armhole measures 5 1/4" (for my size, 36).  Then it says to work 4 more rows.  This leaves me with a front that is not nearly as long as it should be (according to the specs) and doesn't match up with the back piece.  I noticed that the back piece instructions say to make the armhole 7 1/4" and then work 3 more rows.  Is this an error in the pattern or is the discrepancy intentional?  I went ahead and added more rows, and now it all matches up almost perfectly, but I'm still wondering if I did the right thing.  The Happy Hooker errata page is nonfunctional right now, so I don't know if any problems have been identified with the pattern. 

I did read that several people here had problems getting the sleeve to fit into the armhole once it was all done...I'm wondering if this could be due to the instructions mistakenly making the front side too short. 

Anyone have any input?

I checked my copy of the errata for the book and I did not find any for the Prepster pattern. But on a positive note, the file is now up and working. I hope that you find the answer to your question. Sorry that I could not be of more help.

Thanks for the input.  What link did you use?  The errata page still comes up as 404 not found for me.

For the crochet book:

or if you have any of the other books:

You do need to have Adobe Reader to access the file for this book.
Good luck.

Thanks!  The link I was using was old and had a www.bust.com prefix.
