  2. On part three/garter stitch, are the instructions as written supposed to be repeated all the way across, or is the k2 supposed to be "knit across to last 2 stitches" ?

    1. bonjour Barbara, you increase 2 times at the 3 and 6 stitches each rows. after the second increase you knit.

  3. The English version has a mistake in the number of stitches to cast on. It should be 5, right - not 4?
