Here is what Melanie sent to me for the over the knee socks, the pillow and the candycane hat.
Candy Cane Hat Pattern
Rnd 1 of the crown shaping should be as follows: Rnd 1: K1, *skp, k4; repeat from * to last 5 sts, skp, k3.
All of the following rnds work thereafter.
Over the Knee Socks
The first cable on Rnd 8 of the Ankle Chart on page 84 should be moved 1 st to the right.
There are only 96 rows - the chart on page 38 is correct. The "97" in the pattern (on page 36)
is a typo.
There is an error on lines 41 and 42 of the chart -- there should be 9 (not
the charted 8) stitches on either side of the first/last cable; the st just
after/before the "no stitch" column should be a purl stitch.
Although the pillow photographed was made with 5 balls of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, one knitter reported not having enough yarn, so-to be safe-you might want to buy 6 balls.
