Happy Harvest Tips

Welcome to the Happy Harvest Tips page! I have listed below some information, errata and FAQ about the pattern that you might find helpful as you work on this project:


  • Most of Happy Harvest is knit with a main color, and the contrasting color is used for just a piece of the upper back as well as the separate cowl. But, you can choose to use 1 color if you like – if you do, just make sure to to get an extra skein of your main color yarn for the body (and if you are doing the cowl, get an extra skein for that too).
  • In earlier versions of the pattern, for both the Front Shoulder Shaping and the Back Shoulder Shaping, for Row 1 (RS), work the edge as established (k6, sm, sl1), then follow the instructions as written (k to 2 sts before marker). This has been better clarified in the most recent version of the pattern.
  • In earlier versions of the pattern, “Neck Edging”: when picking up stitches for the Front neckline, it should read 19 (21, 23) Front bound-off sts.
