Autumn Leaves Cardigan from Classic Elite book. This is my interpretation of the pattern - I`ve knitted a whole repeat of the leaves part, and made it work out with some fiddling. It`s a small cable, a panel of acorns with the caps downward, a small cable, the centre mofif of an embossed oak leaf, then a cable, another strip of acorns, and another cable - looks good, very tactile.
Now for the corrections/adjustments:
EVEN-NUMBERED ROWS are the RIGHT SIDE in this pattern.
1. 4-st cable pattern is fine, 4row repeat is straightforward with all rows charted.
2. 5-st acorn pattern works - wrong side rows 1, 3, 5 are charted, these form the cap of the acorn. This is a 14-row repeat, so it takes 2 acorns to reach the top of the leaf. For the u = knit 5 together, try this: slip 4 stitches, knit 1, pass the 4 slipped stitches over - gives good definition to the bottom of the acorn.
3. The leaf chart. There are a few bits missing.
<-<-<-<-<-<-<-<- should read - Place 5 stitches on a cable needle and hold in front, purl 3 from the left-hand needle, THEN, from the cable needle, SSK, K1, Knit 2tog, turn, purl 3, turn, knit 3tog, purl 1
ROW 12 should be - - - - l l l . l . l l l - - - -
P P P P K K K M1 K M1 K K K P P P P
This row needs to be filled in as above to make the stitch count, and the leaf shape work.
ROWS 11 and 17 are charted because of the Purl 2tog on both borders of the pattern
ROW 25 is charted because of the K at stitch 5 [middle stitch]
On all other wrong-side rows, knit the knit stitches and purl the purls AS THEY FACE YOU.
Hope this helps
