Spiral/Snail Hat

Several of you have mentioned knitting EZ's Snail Hat and I must alert you that there is a mistake in my instructions in The Opinionated Knitter (not ma's fault!).

Elizabeth's original directions (on page 94) were for a 5-Spiral hat which rather copped out during the decreases; lost its edge. She later re-designed it to a 3-Spiral that retains the sharp M1 edge, through the decreases, to the top. The instructions for the 3-Spiral are on page 96.
In the R-hand column, 7th row down, please correct your copy to read:

(P1, P2tog twice, K15, M1) 3 times

NOT K13 as written.
With apologies,
