Hadley Pullover by Véronik Avery
Page 13: The charts for the yoke and sleeve show purl stitches at certain points. To replicate the photography sample exactly, the purl stitches should be worked one row above where they are indicated on the charts. 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.)
