Has anyone made this pattern and know where I can find the errata? This is a pattern in the Op-Art Socks Book by Stephanie van der Linden. On the ravelry page she shows a statement "Errata available: knitting daily.com", however, that page is no longer available and, I have been unable to locate any errata on this pattern anywhere. I sent an email to the designer/author about two weeks ago but have not received a response. Iv'e also searched the internet with no results. One thing I don't understand is the pattern is a 36-st repeat for the leg and instep, but for my size the cast on is only 64-sts. Unfortunately, I'm not a smart enough knitter to reduce the stitch amount and still keep the pattern. I'd sure appreciate any information anyone can provide. Thanks to everyone on this forum for all the tips and advice posted throughout the years. This is such a great group.

Let me know if you have further trouble!

Thank you. I found that info, however, it does not include the Ludwig pattern (page 90).

You are right. I have looked on the web and can't seem to find anyone reporting a problem with the pattern. Perhaps you are misunderstanding it. I suggest you write to one of the people on Ravelry who completed their socks and like the pattern.

Good luck!

Thanks again. When I decided on this pattern (and as soon as I learned of the errata issue), I read comments on ravelry and noted that a few people commented on the minor pattern error, however, since they did not expand, I continued to look elsewhere. Since I don't feel like looking at pages and pages of pattern notes again, I'll probably find a similar pattern. I'm fairly certain it has something to do with CO 64 st (32 on each needle) for the small size and this does no fit with the 36 st pattern repeat. The large size does have a 72 st CO which, of course, does fit the pattern repeat. Unfortunately, I can't go to the larger size as even the small size is too big for me unless I go down a couple of needle sizes and those needles are getting mighty tiny. Again, many thanks for your time and input.

edmondp, Just an update for you. I now see my error. Reading farther into the pattern, I see I would increase to 72 st. I won't be making these socks as they would never fit me. I wear a 6 1/2 shoe an would probably have to work on a 00 mm or smaller needle. Not going to happen! Still wondering what the errata is tho. Thanks again..

I do so understand as I have a very small foot - most times I buy children's shoes - the odd time I find a small ladies size 5 that fits. Not all sock patterns are meant for women with small feet. I usually look at children's socks for ideas and up-size them if necessary. I find that easier than down-sizing an adult sock.

I usually find the errata`s by going to the book`s publisher website, so if you know that check it out.
I'm surprised the designer on Raverly has not contacted you by now as I've had good luck with them.

They may still be too big but don't forget that these socks are likely to not have much give in them (I've seen the book but don't have it) but socks worked like this do need extra stitches so in this case rather than looking at stitch number check the size they say. I love the look of the socks in this book and do plan to get it sometime to try some

darowil, thanks. I know the socks won't have much give but 72 st seems so much since I normally use 56 st. I may try it another time as I am now looking at Bird Of A Feather or Karenina Socks, both free on ravelry. BTW the book has some very interesting patterns, but be aware that it has three other patterns with minor errata. They can be found at the above link. Too bad you are not in the U.S. as I just saw the book at Tuesday Mornings for USD 3.99.

I actually started this sock last month, but it is on hold since I was commissioned to do a baby sweater and booties. On page 92 second column you will be increasing the leg stitches to 72 for the women's size sock.

next rnd: With CC and Needle 1 *k4, M1, [k8, M1] 3 times, k4; with Needle 2, rep from * - 72 stitches.

Hope this helps

Thanks Catlover 1960. I did finally see that increase, however, I'm still wondering what the errata is that she mentions on her Ludwig sock pattern ravelry page. I've started another pattern but if you find an error in the Ludwig pattern while knitting it, I would appreciate knowing about it. Thanks for your help.

It may be a couple of weeks before I get back to it, but if I find a problem I will let you know. I have made one pattern from this book and do not remember the name of the pattern. They were a pair of socks for my hubby.

They both look good.
Thanks for the warning about the Op Art patterns.
