10/31/14 - Add lace-weight version and new pictures.
2/17/16 - Update to new template. No errors or substantive changes.
03/2021 - Very slight formatting change. SKP was changed to SSK, which is equivalent but more common. ERRATA - This version contains an error in the chart. The first stitch in each repeat of Round 12 should be SSK. Stitch #11 is correct and the written instructions are correct. Also, the quality of the chart is poor. Please contact us if you purchased this version of the pattern and would like a corrected copy of the PDF. We apologize for the error.
06/2022 - Well rats. In last year's very slight formatting change we introduced an error into the chart. The first stitch in each repeat of Round 12 should be an SSK. This version fixes that error and improves the quality of the chart image. It also replaces photos of now-discontinued Twine. Soft Single. with photos of a sample knit in Wildstar Fibers Supernova Sock.
