Errata or Sheer Stupidity?

My bet's on Sheer Stupidity.

I spent a good part of the weekend working on Little Man's fancy Debbie Bliss merion aran "Chunky Cabled Sweater" from Zoe Mellor's Adorable Knits for Tots. Unfortunately after two repeats of the 8-row pattern, I'm fairly certain that I'm doing something wrong. Either there is a mistake on the pattern (probably not), or I'm not doing a FC or BC correctly. Danielle and I puzzled over the criss-crossed center cable and couldn't come up with a definitive answer. So I'll search around and I'll post some pictures tomorrow. In the meantime, I'll contemplate whether I should rip to a lifeline (thank god I finally started using a lifeline) or start doing it correctly now and call that section a learning experience. Hmmmm? Thoughts?

In better news, it appears that I have almost tackled the gauge monster. This Little Man sweater is probably going to fit.

I managed to figure out the problem with the cable of the Chunky Cable Sweater thanks to Priscilla at The Knitting Nook in Coventry Connecticut. After she gave me a few hints on what to look for, I decided that the pattern indeed had a mistake in it. Row 6 should read "As Row 2" not Row 4. This change made the cables come out correctly.

Hope this helps someone else.
