    Errata - Vertically-Knit Top Section: In the first paragraph, "pick up and knit 153 (169, 189, 205, 224, 244, 260) sts..." At the end of the note, you should "pick up between 12.5-13 sts per cable repeat." You may want to place markers in between the cables until the pattern is established in this section.
