Lucky Clover Corrections

What seems like years ago, Debbie Stoller contacted me frantically to make some corrections to my Lucky Clover Wrap from SnB Nation (which were not my fault btw). So I traded in some knitting time to fix er' up and redo all the math (which wasn't fun!) Anywho, for whatever reason, these were never posted in the errata section on Knithappens.com???? Actually, I stand corrected! They are posted and can be found here.

Anywho, I thought the corrections were lost forever once the Lucky KAL was gone, but I found them! When I was searching for something on my computer tonight, I came across them and would like to post them here just for knitters sake. I know some of you out there in blog land have had a terrible time with muscle sizing issues and I apologize! I'm not sure what happened on the publishers side, but I guess stuff happens.

Hey, awesome! I'm making that sweater, and I've been posting a few on-the-fly corrections as I went. Since I'm going to be starting the sleeves soon-ish, that'll save me a lot of work.

The sweater is really adorable, by the way. I love it so far.

Muscle sizing?
I wonder what the mistakes were... Typos? A tech editor who changed the #? I'm getting a little paranoid now!

Geez, what a pain for you to have to redo numbers and such and have it not be your fault in the first place. Thanks for posting the errata. I've been meaning to do the Lucky Clover at some point. It's on the list! :) Hope you're well!

Hey Melissa, Thanks for posting this, but the corrections actually have been up on the site for a while, including a new sleeve schematic, in downloadable pdf format even (http://www.bust.com/knithappens/oops).shtml). I agree that it sucks about the errors in the first place, I believe they were "born" when the technical editor was making some adjustments to problems she was finding in the raglan shaping.
Anyways, I'm so glad that so many folks are enjoying making this beautiful sweater--it's one of my faves!

For the right front the math doesn't work with the corrections. Using the smallest size as an example - cast on 91 stitches. Decrease by 4 stitches = 87 stitches. Then increase 7 stitches you have 94 stitches not the 64 indicated by the correction. Does this mean the number of cast on stitches is wrong? What is going on? Can someone help me figure out this mess?
