Errata for Lacey Trellis Spiral Poncho

Hi, everyone!

I have a bit of an errata for the Lacey Trellis Spiral Poncho pattern.  I had a few people make the pattern but discover that they were not ending with a number that would allow them to create the trellis portion of the poncho.  I went back to the math and discovered that there was a bit of a problem.  For the spiral to work, your final row definitely was a multiple of 8, but it also has to be a multiple of 6 stitches + 4.

Here is a chart of how it works:

Starting multiple of 8 32 56 80 104 128
Row 3 (increase) 40 64 88 112 136
Row 4 (increase) 48 72 96 120 144
Row 5 (increase) 56 80 104 128 152
Row 6 (before sprial) 64 88 112 136 160

Any of the combination in this chart will work.  The original pattern was started with 80 stitches and ended with 112 before the spiral row began.

I apologize for any confusion or frustration!  I hope you will share your pictures of your ponchos with me!
