Cardi Cozy still has some problems.
1) Where is the boldface red?
2)There are more corrections on the Ravelry pattern page than you list here, including the amount of yarn to purchase.
3)Even experienced knitters are having trouble figuring out the directions, especially the kfb (refer to comments on the Ravelry website about having to start over, etc.)
Thanks for fixing this.

I am having touble with the Jany Austen shrug. Could someone write out exactly what rows 4 and 5 should be?
