Is anyone else knitting the Cambridge Jacket from Interweave Knits Summer 06?

I think there may be at least one error in the pattern where they tell you to BO stitches for the shoulders on the cardigan fronts. The number of BO stitches and final stitches don't add up.

I searched for errata,but couldn't find any. I guess it's still too early for that. I also had knitted the Prairie Tunic from the Spring Interweave before errata were published and am pretty disappointed with the results. Argghhh... This is frustrating...

I am knitting it right now.
There is no mistake..I just BO 2 minutes ago :-)
because you are binding off the 2 ribbing stitches as one it all sums up fine.

Hi Bonnie,

I'm not sure yet about fit because I"m knitting the Cambridge Jacket in secret, It's for our 2nd anniversary (which is sadly already 2 months ago, I'm late...). My husband is pretty skinny, but he was a swimmer and so has a wide chest. But I think there are lots of sizes to knit this in - from a 35" chest to a 52" chest. There is some ribbing, but it's not all over so it shouldn't be super-tight.

Re: the prairie tunic. Did you see the errata in time? I hope so. Because it's lovely, but the errors in the pattern really mess up the front two triangles and lace decreasing.

Hi again Bonnie,

I forgot to say that I just started a blog at physicsknits.blogspot.com and am updating my progress on the Cambridge Jacket as I go along. Updates will be in spurts and stalls since I can only knit this when my husband's away.
