Errors in Sheldon Pattern (edited)

The Sheldon pattern in Knitty had a few errors that have since been corrected. They now appear in red type.

I created a diagram that was not published with the pattern, so I thought I'd include it here. The diagonal lines indicate the increases, and locating them can be helpful in figuring out where to place the eyes and limbs.

with the decreases on the shell, is it correct that the (sl2 k6) goes from 4 to 3 to 2 to 3? it would seem like it would need to go down to one repeat, since there are not enough stitches to repeat 3 times? just curious.

Good to know. I haven't gotten that far yet...but my 7 month old daughter loves the legless body!

I saw the sheldon pattern on Knitty and I fell in love with him! It's just adorable, and the idea of make his shell separate is pure genious! Love ti! love it! love it!

Thanks. I'm knitting it up now and got to the part where I stuff the body and add the eyes and was wondering what diagram you were talking about.
