    Thank you so much for this pattern! Many years later, I’m finally knitting it, and it’s beautiful. For the lady slouch, part way through the directions it says to work the middle rounds until the piece measures 5 (6, 6.5, 6, 6.5)” from cast on. Is there a typo, and is it supposed to be 7 and 7.5″ for the largest two sizes? I was trying to add up the other pieces to see how it would work, and am presumably just missing something!

    Thank you for your generosity. I’ve discovered some awesome patterns here that I might not have otherwise encountered. A Hipster beanie and the Antler mittens are already wrapped and under the tree.
