I have the original pattern but I have found that there must be several mistakes and have not been successful with it. And can't find the corrections online. Is there a way to find them?

If you purchased the pattern on Ravelry, or on a website, you should be able to get an updated version.

https://www.ravelry.com/projects/loreoflore/summer-flies-7 (lists some corrections)

There appear to be at least a Version 8.

Personally, I wouldn't bother with a pattern that has known errors and no way to find what they are. JMO

Here is a search on KP. Perhaps someone there can help.

If you purchase the pattern through Ravelry there may be an update in your library. I see she has a second version of the shawl called "Summer Flies Again" this is her description from Ravelry:

Hello! Summer Flies Again V3 is up! All known errors in V1 & V2 have now been corrected in V3!

This takes care of counting errors in Section 6, as well as errors in the Knotted Openwork and the number of sts required for the Ruffled Edge of Section 8.

I also added a detailed explanation of PASS in the Abbreviations as well as Row 93 where this st first occurs.

Thank you for your patience!
Donna

Summer Flies Again is the expanded version of the original Summer Flies Shawl. T

I'm not sure if this means she did not update the first version to take care of the errata, which considering both are paid patterns she should have. I hope I'm not correct and that they may actually be two different patterns. I'd be very upset if indeed she did just republish, forcing people who paid for the first version to pay a second time to get the corrections.
You might have to read through some of the helpful comments on Ravelry if you can not find someone here on KP to help with more specifics. You could also try contacting the designer regarding the update.

I've made the first Summer Flies pattern that was published in June 2010. It was a free pattern when I downloaded it. It is a well written pattern and was very easy to follow and really enjoyed knitting it. In fact, I have another one in progress. Two of the ladies in one of my knit groups have made it and they did not have any issues with the pattern. One of the ladies had not knit a lace pattern before and was able to do it with a little guidance on my part. She was surprised that it was a lot easier than she thought it would be.

Can you be more specific with your problem. When working with lace it is easy, even for experienced knitters, to miss or drop a YO. This would throw off your stitch count making it appear that there is an error in the pattern.

Once it is in your library, free or not, you can download it. There was a download that had a corrupted file and most of the new downloads are foreign languages.
That's not always true.
If acquired (free or paid) as a download ON Ravelry, yes, it will remain downloadable from your library on Ravelry.

However, if acquired OFF Ravelry, no, it's not at all downloadable from your Ravelry library.

This was driven home last night. In my Ravelry library, I have this: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/autumn-cascade-shawl
And there's no download button, because I got it free from the Expression Fiber Arts website when it was offered free in January. I did add it to my Ravelry library, but it's not a download FROM Ravelry.
Luckily, the way one gets free patterns from Expression Fiber Arts includes an email receipt, even if free, and I was able to find it in my Yahoo Mail account.
Now, I need to print it (22 pages!!!), and practice the i-cord beginning/all-round border, before using the good stuff.

I made The summer flies about 2 years ago. I checked my notes and found nothing about errata. I do generally make a note of problems in patterns. What is the nature of the errror? https://www.ravelry.com/projects/CastOn2KeepCalm/summer-flies
https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/autumn-flutters
didn't find pattern for Autumn Flies on Ravelry but did find this one by Donna -
Errata:
Section 10 - Knotted Openwork
Row 2: K3, P265, K3 (274)
Row 18: K3, P313, K3

Notes: Pattern is written in two sizes. A shawlette with a picot edge and a Shawl with a pleated edge.

Me too. In fact I've made 3 of these. One of my favorite patterns to knit (for a shawl.) It holds my interest from beginning to end. I've never had a problem with it. I expanded the pattern to include a second set of what looks like butterflies to make in a bit longer and wider. Maybe the old free pattern was written differently?
