Errata

GMC the publishers of my book Socktopus: 17 Pairs of Socks Worth Showing Off do not have a dedicated page for listing errata from their books, so I’ve listed them here.

Socktopus: 17 Pairs of Socks Worth Showing Off

Hundred Acre Wood
page 121 Heel flap Row 5 has an extra k1 – ignore the k1 before the ssk. Row 5 should read sl2, (k1, sl1) 13[16:19] times, ssk, turn.

Mince Pie Mayhem
page 113 Heel set-up – Rounds 2 for S, M & L sizes ignore the WS in brackets, this section is still done in the round.

Vorticity
-pg 86 Needles should read “US 1.5(2.5mm)” not US 1.5(2mm)
-pg 89 Instep Chart has only 20 rows, not 22 as marked. Rows 9 & 10 & 19 & 20 should each have one extra knit stitch so that when you work the entire chart twice you have 38 sts total over the instep.

To help with stitch count:
Leg Chart sts count after working:
Row 1 77
Row 2 70
Row 3 77
Row 4 70

Row 17 69

-pg 41 Heel turn Row 1 should read: “Sl1, P12(18:22), p2tog, p1, turn.”
-pg 41 Gusset Round 2 first line should read “K7(10:12), k10(14:18) tbl, k2tog, sm”
-pg 42 Chart Key: ignore ‘no stitch’ key. Orange is only to highlight the differing set-up sts
-pg45 Toe Chart Medium: Row 9 has an errant k2tog at the second last st – this should be a plain knit st.

Caretta Caretta
-pg 142 Schematic: should have a 7 inch circumference
-pg 142 Notes: For a smaller sock, knit at a gauge of 40 st per inch (gives a 1/2 inch smaller circumference), or smaller for even smaller circumference. See Totally Vanilla for guidance on fit.

pg 80: Heel Turn should read:
Row 1 Sl1, p15[21], p2tog, p1, turn
Row 2 Sl1, k4[6], ssk, k1, turn
Row 3 Sl1, p5[7] (to 1st before gap), p2tog, p1, turn
Row 4 Sl1, k6[8] (to 1st before gap), ssk, k1 turn.

Cont in this manner until 17[23] sts rem, ending with a RS row. Do not turn.

pg 80: Gusset Shaping Note: should read “When you come to the instep decreases at the end of rows 7 & 9 of the Instep Chart, make a central decrease by slipping 2 sts as if to knit, then slipping 1 more st knitwise and knitting these 3 sts tog tbl. Skip the decreases for Row 1 and do them on Row 2 of the Instep Chart instead (hence gusset shaping will take place on Rows 2, 3, 5, 7 & 9 of the Instep Chart).”

St count for Gusset Shaping reflecting above change:

Round 1: 47 (49) gusset + 33 (43) instep sts
Round 2: 45 (47) gusset + 38 (49) instep sts (Instep Chart Row 3)
