I didn't make any changes from the pattern but there was one error in the instructions. The armholes have a lovely double chain selvedge around them and the instructions call for having the yarn at the back of the work for both slip stitches. It should be yarn in front for the first and yarn in back for the second. And I must say I found the instructions hard to follow. One needs to be well acquainted with knitting sweaters to understand them. I struggled and ripped out several times before I got the shoulders right. Maybe that's why I don't see many other people on the web doing Gedifra projects.
So now on to something new—another lace project for my daughter from Victorian Lace Today by Jane Sowerby—the triangle shawl on page 134.
