Orchid Thief

Pattern: Orchid Thief by Ysolda Teague from Brave New Knits
Yarn: 2.5 skeins Koigu KPM won as a door prize
Needles: US6
Notes: There is errata for this pattern. You can get revised versions of charts 3 and 4 from Ysolda but it's still fairly unclear how to knit Row 86. Fortunately a helpful Raveler has spelled it all out. I found the blocking a bit challenging. Other than putting in a billion pins I couldn't get the shape the way I thought it should be.
