All was going smoothly on my re-knit of the Puff-Sleeved Cardigan peplum until I reached row 17 of the 20-row lace pattern. Suddenly I didn't have the right number of stitches in ANY of the repeats, but I just fudged it by doing a k2tog instead of a k3tog in each repeat. Then on row 19 I saw that each lace repeat begins and ends with a yarnover, but the next row doesn't indicate any special treatment in these areas -such as knitting the first and purling the second, or knitting the second through the back loop - even though you can't knit two yarnovers in a row. I became suspicious. I've made this sweater before. I went on Ravelry and looked at forum posts related to this pattern. I saw a couple from me.
I had forgotten about this.
It's the Peplum of Vexation.
I just winged it like it did last time, but it still looks wrong, like it did last time. And like last time, there is STILL no update to the errata even though the lace chart is obviously wrong AND people have emailed the designer. I have become annoyed all over again.
But hey, the peplum is done! Again!
Here is my new, improved, shorter cardigan.
Now, just to make the button bands and sew on the buttons, tasks that I am not at all looking forward to.
