Scarf, p.21-22

Please note that you will require 2 balls of Silver (1203) for the scarf.

Rows 87-88 should read htr in each st across.

There are no tr sts used to make this Scarf.

Bobble hat, p.21

In the notes section on the bobble hat, we incorrectly advised that “Yarn as listed is enough to also make Melissa’s Scarf and Mittens in this set. The Hat is worked top down in the round.”

This is incorrect and you will require the quantities listed for each pattern. It is likely that you may be able to complete some of the smaller patterns like the mittens and scarf with just one ball of each of the rainbow colours, but to be completely safe of not running out please follow the quantities listed.

Yarn review bow motif, p.76

Pattern incorrectly states to ch136, this should say ch36

Spring Wreath from 2019 Calendar

For the Spring Wreath pattern the instructions say that you will need 1 ball of Rico Creative Cotton Ricorumi in the colour Coral (009). This is a mistake and the colour coral is not used in any of the wreaths.

Apache Tears Hook ‘n’ Learn ninth block, p95.

You may have noticed that the magazine instructions did not match up with our Youtube video tutorial which can be found here. Both the video and the written instructions in the magazine will work out correctly if used in isolation, but do not match up if used together. This is due to a left-handed/right-handed crocheting issue, which unfortunately we did not allow for. We do take accuracy very seriously and we are sincerely sorry for the confusion caused.

We would like to make it clear that this was an administrative error, and neither the designer nor Lou from Yarniversity were responsible for this – they have both done a great job!

To avoid any further confusion, you can find the version that will work with the video here, if you wish to use them together.

We hope you enjoy hooking the blanket.

On the Left Back Opening, work up until the end of Row 4, noting that the stitch counts at the end of Row 4 should be 35 (36: 40: 42: 45: 48) sts.

Raglan Borders

The total number of htr groups for the Back border should be 15 (16: 17: 18: 19: 20).

The total number of htr groups for the Front border should be 16 (17: 18: 19: 20: 21), as the Front border is longer due to the Neck Shaping.

On the instructions for the Sleeve Borders and for Joining Raglan Borders, the shorter side will therefore be attached to the Back and the longer side to the Front, not the other way round as written.

Asymmetrical Poncho, p.56

Row 4 Ch5 (counts as tr, ch2), *skip 3tr of next block, dc in top of ch3 of same block, ch2, skip tr at base of ch-3, tr in next tr, ch2; repeat from * ending last rep with tr in top of beg ch-3, turn.

Hook ‘n’ Learn Feature, p48-49

On the ‘Colour Crafter Version Only’ section at the end of the pattern, this should say Rows 6-39 (or until piece measures 32cm ending with an odd row). The Stone Washed XL version is correct in saying ‘until piece measures 40cm’

Easter Egg Pull-Out Pattern Card

On the Easter egg pattern card we say that you can watch a tutorial on how to make these eggs on our Youtube channel – this refers to the stiffening process using the balloons and PVA glue, and not the crochet pattern itself (although you can find separate tutorials for the individual stitches). You can find the PVA glue video here.

Ruffle Accessories Socks, p22

You will require 2 balls of the Yarn A Pumice for these socks. We think the small size may be possible with just the one ball, but we would recommend airing on the side of caution and making sure you have 2 to avoid disappointment.

Mandala Mat, p.24-25.

The mini mandala’s and decoration sections require the following colour chart which was omitted.

There is a misprint in the sizing chart, the cardigan requires 10 (11, 12, 13) 50g balls of Wendy Merino DK (not 100g as stated).

Party Shark, p44-47.

The instruction to make 2 of the tail pieces has been missed off. You make two of the tail pieces, sew the first rounds together around the base once you’ve stuffed them, and then sew them on to the back of the Shark.

Hook to Hook gloves/mittens, p. 59-62.

The yarn colour codes are the wrong way around for both of these patterns, it should say

Lacy Cardigan by Amanda Crawford, p.28 & 29

On the First Front, before the first Armhole, the last row you need to work is a WS Row 3, not a Row 1 as stated. This row will be worked from the shoulder towards the bottom hem.

The following instructions replace those written for the Armhole in the magazine, to make the armhole rows correct in pattern:

For the Armhole, place a marker in the 15th (16th: 17th: 18th: 19th) tr from the start (shoulder) of the last row, skipping the ch-sps. Armhole should measure 20 (21: 22.5: 23.5: 25) cm.

Next Row (RS) Repeat Row 1 to marker, turn leaving rem sts unworked.

Next Row (WS) Repeat Row 2, turn.

Next Row (RS) Repeat Row 3 to end, ch42 (45: 48: 51: 54) for opposite side of armhole, turn.

Next Row (WS) Repeat Row 1 to end, turn. [127 (127: 139: 139: 139) sts]

You can then follow these corrected instructions when told to repeat the armhole.

Puff Stitch Mitts by Hannah Cross, p.25

On the Mitts section, rather than repeating Rows 1 and 2 for rows 3-18, work the following rows instead.

Rows 4-18 Repeat Rows 2-3 seven more times, repeat Row 2 once more.

Filet Jumper on p.52

The yarn weight stated should be 4ply, and not DK.

The tension should be:

Rib – 26 rows of dc to 10cm (4in)

Filet – 8.5 mesh squares to 10cm (4in) and 9 rows to 10cm (4in)

It appears that the 4.5mm hook stated is also too large to achieve the tension stated. You could try a 4mm hook, or even a 3.5mm hook. It’s very important to work a tension swatch before you start to check that your hook size is giving you the tension stated in the pattern. Particularly in this case, where the 4.5mm hook is obviously too large, please do a test swatch to find out which size of hook will give you the tension stated above.

And the first row of the sleeves section is incorrect, it should read as follows:

Row 1 (RS) Ch5 (counts as tr, ch2 throughout), *skip ch-2 sp, tr in next tr, ch2; repeat from * to end, tr in last tr, turn. [30 (32: 34) mesh squares]

Here is an updated chart for the filet pattern.

Frank&Olive Doughnut Dress on p.50

On Round 1 of the Skirt, all stitches are tr stitches; it should read ‘tr in each ch of the ch-6 of the underarm’ and not dc as stated.

The yarn quantities stated in the original pattern for Magic Mint are incorrect. 1 ball is required for all sizes. All other yarn quantities are given correctly.

The alternative yarn suggested (DROPS Love 5) is no longer available. DROPS Paris is a close match with 75m per 50g. So we would suggest 2 balls of Paris for the yoke for all sizes.

As we are working out a substitute yarn that is sold in 50g balls not 100g balls we have simply doubled the quantities, however, it may be that 1 ball is sufficient for the yoke on the smallest size and for the cream stripe. It is impossible to calculate this accurately from the original sample so we have erred on the safe side by doubling quantities.

If you are planning on using a yarn substitute other than those that we have recommended, please remember to check the meterage as well as the weight so that you don’t end up buying too much yarn.

The sizing of the dress is generous, it is designed to be loose-fitting. Please ensure your swatch meets the tension given in the pattern for the best outcome.

Sleeves

And to clarify, when you’re working the sleeves, you should work until there are 50 rounds of the pattern, not including the first 3 dc rounds.

On the Back and Front, after the Armhole Divide and working the Right Front, you rejoin for the Back. On Row 2 (Decrease Row) and Row 3, the stitch counts for the largest two sizes should read 31 and 35 tr groups after Row 2 for sizes 16-18 and 20-22 respectively. This will make the counts for these sizes 32 and 36 after Row 3, and  28 and 32 after the repeats of Rows 2 and 3.

Due to unforeseen shade alterations by King Cole you may be unable to find the Silver yarn shade. So we recommend the following yarn shade substitutions for the A Good Vintage granny cardigan:

King Cole Merino Blend 4ply

Stone (904) to be replaced with Slate Blue (096)

Silver (036) to be replaced with Stone (904)

Slipper Socks, p.73

After Round 8, there is a round missing. For this missing round, work as follows:

Join Yarn F with a ss to any ch-4 sp, (ch3, ss in next ch-4 sp) 24 times, working last ss in first ss of Round.

You will then continue working from Round 9 of the pattern, but instead of joining Yarn F as written (you are already working with it), ss into the next ch-3 sp before starting. Round 9 refers to ch-4 sps of the previous round, so these will be ch-3 sps instead, but the stitches themselves are accurate.

When you have finished there will be a total of 12 rounds in the pattern.

‘Top of the crops’ jacket by Ilaria Caliri.

With a bold silhouette, cropped sleeves, huge pocket and jumbo button, this is one heck of a jacket. It’s hooked in berry-coloured wool and wins big in the style stakes.

Please note, the yarn used is Lana Grossa Feltro, which comes in 50g balls. The measurements table lists 100g balls but the number of balls is correct for 50g balls (as listed in the ‘You will need’ section). So for size 8 you will need 14 50g balls, for sizes 10 and 12 you need 15 50g balls, and so on.

The colour chart itself is correct, but the rows have been misnumbered. Number 79 is missing along the top, and number 88 is missing on the left. This means there are a total of 90 rows, rather than 91, but as long as you work each row of the chart in sequence you will get the right result.

The yarn quantities should be 3 balls each of Yarn A Aspen and Yarn B White, not 5 balls.

Lace collar by Elisabeth Davis de Herraiz

If you’re thinking of hooking this using Kidsilk Haze Shine please note you will need two balls, not one as stated in the pattern. It’s an luxury yarn, so if your budget can’t stretch to two balls you could use one ball of Rowan Shine as stated, and then buy one ball of Rowan Kidsilk Haze, which comes in exactly the same shade. Kidsilk Haze is less costly than Shine, and could be used to work Row 2, with Shine as Rows 1 and 3.

For another cheaper version, Scheepjes have a similar yarn to Kidsilk Haze called Mohair Rhythm. If you hooked the necklace in this yarn you could add beads rather than crystals for a similar effect.

Or if you still want to make it with just one ball of Kidsilk Haze Shine, you can tweak the pattern. The published pattern is written using 4 multiples of 14 sts + 1. You could try using 3 multiples of 14sts + 1, which is total of 43 sts, so the foundation ch would be ch43, plus an extra ch1 as turning ch for the beginning of Row 1. If you did this, for the ‘point’ of the pattern to be in the centre you would need to stagger the pattern repeat in a different way.

This chart (click to enlarge it) shows what would happen. The stitch pattern is the same as published but it starts the row in a different place. Obviously if you do this you will end up with a smaller collar piece, but you could use longer ribbons as ties instead of ch. It would also be worth using a 3.5mm hook instead of a 4mm hook to save yarn.

Mandala Waistcoat, p. 52-55

When beginning first segment, instead of reading “With Poppy Red, ch8 ss into first ch to form a ring” followed by “Row 1 (RS) Ch9…” it should read:

Ch17, ss into 8th ch from hook,

Then follow the pattern as you would have after the ch9 (so dc into next ch, her etc). This will leave your yarn in the right place to create the segment.

Sarong p.25

Row 1 should read ‘With Mint, ch5 (counts as ch, tr, ch),…’

Little Monster Cushion p.48

The first paragraph is mistaken – the limbs are worked in htr and only the features (Cheeks and Eyes) are worked in dc.

Treble Tee p.83

On the Sleeves section, there are 2 too many sts in the foundation ch for the number of sts worked in the row, so start by chaining 48 (50: 52: 56: 60: 68). Thereafter the stitch counts will be 2 more than the actual stitch count but continue working as written until you have worked the first row of the Top Shaping, and have continued decreasing as instructed until 22 (22: 22: 22: 24) sts remain. Complete the Sleeves as written.

Round 23 should read: Ch1 (does not count as st), dc in first ss, *ch2, skip next ch-3 sp, dc in next ss, ch1, skip next ch-3 sp, dc in next ss; rep from * around, ss in first dc. [42 ch-1 sp and 42 ch-2 sp]

Then follow the pattern for Round 24 making sure you just 6tr in every ch2 sp and not any ch1 sp.

Round 24 Ss into first ch-2 sp, ch3, 5tr in same ch-2 sp, 6tr in each following ch-2 sp around, ss in top of beg ch-3. [252 sts]

Round 26 Ch1, *dc in back loop only of next 5 sts, skip next st, 3-tr cluster in skipped ch-1 sp of Round 23; repeat from * around, ss in top of first st, change to Grape.

Round 35 has been re-written – the stitch counts themselves were correct. Round 35 Ss between first 2 sts, ch3, 5tr in same sp, *skip 6 sts, 6tr in sp before next st; repeat from * around, ss in top of beg ch-3. [42 6-tr groups]

Round 54 should read:

Working in the back loops only: ch4 (counts as tr and ch1), skip 1 st, *tr in next st, ch1, skip 1 st; rep from * around, ss in third ch of beg ch-4.

Round 57

There should be 2 stitches in this round for every 2 stitches in the previous round because the stitch count remains the same.

Ss between first pair of sts, ch3, tr in sp at base of ch, skip 1 st, (2tr between next pair of sts, skip 1 st) around, ss in top of beg ch-3, change to Parma Violet. [352 sts]

Bohemian Blanket, p.25

At the beginning of the pattern for the Narrow Half Diamond, there should be 4 rows of each of Anis and Hawaii, rather than the 3 stated. There are then 3 rows of all subsequent colours including the Hawaii and Anis at the end. This is to ensure that the diamonds are the right size to sew together with the other pieces.

Issue 33, main magazine

Patchwork Throw, p.16

Round 1 of the Edging states that you should work (2FPtr, ch2, 2FPtr) into the corner stitch. This will work on the first round, but thereafter you will be working into the ch-2 sps at the corners, so you will need to replace the FPtr sts with dtr stitches in order to work them into a chain space.

Lacy Cardigan, p.44

The correction replaces the whole of the Yoke section, and finishes before ‘Divide for Sleeves’.

Yoke

With a 3.5mm hook, ch59 (61: 63: 69: 69: 71: 73).

Issue 30

If you’re hooking the Granny treble top – issue 30 – we have some extra help from our lovely technical editor, as several readers were confused by the instructions for the arm shaping.

Cara says “It looks odd that the first row increases by 2 clusters and the following rows only by 1, but it does work out this way if you follow the pattern as written. On this sketched chart, the rows of the main pattern are at the bottom of the chart, and the increases for the arm shaping are explained at the top of the chart.”

Issue 29

Long Sleeved Top, pg. 32

We’re sorry that there is a small mistake in the ‘You Will Need’ list for this pattern.

Yarn weight should read Aran, not 4ply. The stated hook size of 3mm is correct.

Lacy Shawl, p.58

The 5mm hook should not have been listed in the ‘You Will Need’ column. The entire pattern is worked on a 4.5mm hook.

Also, on Row 7, the shells should be worked in the ch-2 sps of the previous row, not ch-3 sps as written in the pattern.

Amigurumi Doll, p.64

The last round of the Dress, Round 17, should be worked in treble stitches and not dc as stated.

Embellish Cuff, p.66

Rows 2 and 3 should read as follows:

Row 2 Ch1 (does not count as st), dc into each of the next 4 sts, *(dc, ch7, dc) into the next st, dc into each of the next 7 sts; repeat from * across omitting the last 3 dc on the final repeat, turn.

Row 3 Ch3 (counts as tr), dc into the next st, skip 3 sts, *9dc into ch-7 sp, skip 3 sts, dc into the next st, tr in the next st, dc in the next st, skip 3 sts; repeat from * across omitting the last dc on the final repeat, turn.

Spike Stitch, on page 51.

Please note that the Basic Spike Stitch Pattern is correct as written, but you will need to fasten off the yarn and rejoin the new colour at the end of each row.

Spike Stitch Legwarmers

For the Legwarmers, use 3 balls of the shade used for the rib edges and 2 balls of the contrast shade.

Beaded shawl, page 60

At the beginning of Row 10, instead of ‘Ch3’, it should read ‘Ch5 (counts as tr and ch2)’.

Round 2 of the Face should read (5dc, 2dc in next st) twice. [14 sts]

Cabled Cardigan, p.41

On the Sleeves, after repeating Rows 5-12, it states that there should be 43 rows in total. There are actually 44 rows at this point, but all of the other maths details in this section are correct.

In addition, the 3-st cable pattern should be as follows:

Row 1 3dc.

Row 2 3dc.

Row 3 3FPtr.

Row 4 3dc.

Row 5 Skip 1 FPtr, 1FPtr in each of next 2 sts, 1FPtr into the skipped st, working in front of the existing sts.

Row 6 3dc.

Work Rows 3-6 as many times as required by pattern.

On the Head, work Rounds 12 onwards as follows:

Round 12 (4dc, dc2tog) 6 times. [30 sts]

Round 13 (3dc, dc2tog) 6 times. [24 sts]

Round 15 (dc, dc2tog) 6 times. [12 sts]

Stuff head.

Round 16 (dc2tog) 6 times. [6 sts]

Tunisian Shawl, p.43

The repeat instructions after Level 3 should read:

Repeat (Levels 2 and 3) a further 4 times, changing to next largest hook size before each Level 2. [11 levels in total]

To clarify the hook sizes used for each level, Levels 1, 2 and 3 are worked on a 5mm hook, Levels 4 and 5 on 5.5mm, Levels 6 and 7 on 6mm, Levels 8 and 9 on 6.5mm and Levels 10 and 11 on 8mm. All of these sizes are listed in the ‘You will need’ column at the beginning of the pattern.

Issue 24

We’re sorry, we have a correction for issue 24 of Simply Crochet. There’s an error in the printed copies, on page 94. The chart for the Cosy Cushion (page 25) is missing the row of white flowers across the centre, so the chart should look like this:

Simply Crochet issue 23 Cushion Chart

This was an error in the printing, so if you have downloaded the digital edition of issue 24, this won’t affect you.

Hot Water Bottle Cover, page 27

There is a critical bit missing from Row 3 of the cuff. Row 3 should read as follows:

Row 3 Ch1 (does not count as st), dc in back loop only of each dc across, skip next st of Round 49, ss in next st of Round 49, turn.

Without skipping every alternate stitch of Round 49 you will end up with a cuff that is too big.

Yarn reviews, page 80

We’re sorry, the ball weight/meterage for Wendy Ramsdale is incorrect; it should say 50g/112 m.

Snuggly Socks, p.23

Do not work Rounds 17-19 of the Leg, after Round 16, skip to Round 20.

After working Rounds 1-3, there is another round labelled Round 3, which should be Round 4.
