Errata for Kelim Jacket by Martin Storey, as printed in Knitting 114

The graphic of the chart is longer than it should be so the sleeve shaping seems too long. It’s only a 70-row repeat so ignore the last 8 row otherwise you’ll get 2 repeats of the ochre coloured ‘darts’. Once you cast on for your size the first 22 rows of rib are knitted on 3.25mm needles then after increasing one stitch the colourwork begins on 3.75mm needles. Work in pattern until the Back measures 10 cm from the cast on edge then change back to the smaller needles for continuing in pattern for a further 8cm. Change back to 3.75mm needles for working straight until the Back measures 38[38:39:39:40:40] cm (depending on size) and you’re ready to begin shaping the armholes from this point.
