I bought my book from Amazon a short time ago (copyright date 2012). I went to the website at Lark Crafts and clicked on Product Updates. I then looked into the errors for this book and compared with my copy. My book did NOT have any errors in it, not even one so I'm assuming that it was an earlier printing that was defective. Not sure what happened there, but that printing had a TON of errors.
I just wanted to reassure those thinking of buying this book from Amazon.
This book has BEAUTIFUL designs. Tops that will get you compliments and offers versatility for all seasons. The short bio about the author is very interesting as well. This large paperback also has a bookmark flap in front and back, a nice feature rarely seen. Designs vary from vests, jackets, long and short sleeve sweaters, solid & lacy designs. Simple and streamlined, but feminine. A great deal of educational information about FIT. I am in love with the Fiji Cardi, but the jacket on the cover is wonderful as well. On Pages 37 & 38 she gives instructions for width and length alterations, so if you are plus-sized or you want something looser fitting, you have the directions.
