Hadley Pullover by Véronik Avery
Page 13: The charts for the yoke and sleeve show purl stitches at certain points.

Change the charts as follows: make a purl mark in the square above the square where a purl stitch is shown. The squares with the original purl stitches should be worked as knit stitches.

Page 13: For the yoke chart, use this chart for Rounds 24-39. The double decrease in Round 24 is different from what appears in Field Guide No. 2. Note here that the symbol / represents a knit 2 together stitch. (The symbol is different in the Field Guide, but the stitch is k2tog.)
