Margaret Cottam correction sheet removed

I noticed the correction sheet Lori from La D Da sent me had more errors than expected. She skipped one stitch on the right, added the symbol for Baked apple on the berries instead of Sheneckly so its best to take your original chart and try to read thru the shaded area between the top and mid sections the best you can. Or change the triangle symbol to the plus sign and add an X on thr far right. This  will make it match the original chart
