I'm loving the Quartz Lace Top pattern in Interweave Crochet's Winter 2013 issue, but am suddenly stuck at the beginning of Rnd 25! The pattern says to begin V-sts in previous row, but describes the previous row as rnd 5 from the lace pattern, although I have ended at rnd 4 from the lace pattern!
I've done the math, and can't see how this is possible... If the lace pattern is grouped into 5 rows per "set," and I've ended on Rnd 24, then theoretically I should still be missing the last rnd from that "set" in the lace pattern? But for some reason the pattern makes it sound like I should have finished 5 rows from the "set."
To be entirely clear, the pattern asks for Rnd 25, "...V-st in each V-st and center ch of each ch-3 sp around..." however the round I have just finished is the round with the "fan" stitch, so there is no ch-3 sp in this row; they appear in the next row. I do have 14 V-st in each corner as the pattern says I should have at this point.
Also, Rnd 1 of the top pattern starts at rnd 1 of the lace pattern, so there can't be any confusion there. (The first row of V-st is called "Set-up Rnd," so I know that's not the issue.)
Finally, I've looked at the photos and it definitely looks like the "set" of 5 for the lace pattern was finished before this Rnd 25 began. I'm thinking I need to crochet the final row of this "set," I'm just not sure if I should increase or not since I won't be following the pattern to do it.
Has anyone noticed this?
We don't currently have any errata for this pattern, but we are having the tech editor look into this pattern to see if there was possibly a typo. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
Just wanted to let you know that i found the same thing at Rnd 25. I worked around it by referring to rnds 5 & 10 of lace pattern (V-st in each 3 V-st set, 3 ch, V-st in the centre ch-2 sp of the fan, 3 ch). Looking at the pics of the arms this is how the final rnd of the yoke looks to me, rather then a v st in every v st and 3 ch space. The next round i worked was rnd 1 of body working a v st in each v st and centre ch of each ch-3 sp. I then continued the pattern as it is written. I didn't need to increase to make it work. Hope this helps.

I basically did the same thing as you. I just worked in the last round of the lace pattern without increasing. I was a little creative in this round making sure that even though I didn't increase, I kept the same (dc, ch1, dc, ch1, dc) sequence in the corners from the previous increase. Not sure if that was a bad idea, but I wasn't patient enough to wait.
I noticed the same thing too, and I am just finishing the lace pace and moving on to the Body Rnd 1. After consulting the picture I think that we will match up and I did not increase on the last lace round. This pattern is challenging and really forces you pay attention. I am glad they included so many pictures to reference.
