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.

Pattern incorrectly states to ch136, this should say ch36

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 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 should read as follows,
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.
Chevron Cardigan, p.27.
Row 8 of Left Front; Armhole and Neckline Decreasing; sizes 8-10 and 16-20 should read:
‘Row 8 Ch3, tr in st at base of ch, tr in next st, (tr2tog) twice, work in Stitch Pattern to end, turn.’
On the Shape Armhole section on page 28, after the first 2 rows it should say
Sizes 8-10 and 12-14 fasten off.
Sizes 16-20 and 22-24 Dec 1 st at each end of next (3:4) rows.
Amigurumi Panda, p.39
The pattern is missing the tail instructions, they are as follows:
With Yarn B, make a magic loop.
Round 1 Ch1 (does not count as st) 5dc into the ring. [5 sts]
Round 2 2dc in each st around. [10 sts]
Round 3 – 4 1dc in each dc. [10 sts]
Round 5 (dc2tog, 3dc) repeat twice. [8 sts]
Fasten off leaving a tail for sewing. Stuff the tail.
Sleeveless Top, p.64.
The sizing measurements that accompany the schematic are incorrect, they should be the following:
Width a: 48 (51.5, 55, 58.5)cm 19 (20 1/4, 21 3/4, 23)in.
Fanfare sleeves, p.68

Elephant Head, pattern booklet included with issue 69
Row 13 of the Shape Top of Ear (Page 11) The final stitch count is incorrect and should be 43 sts, not 112 sts as stated.
Round 5 of the Picot Flower Motif (Page 14) should read as follows: (2dc in next st, dc in next 3 sts) 10 times. [30 sts]
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.
Lacy Cardigan, p.27-30.
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
1 ball of Yarn A Chestnut (03)
2 balls of Yarn B Gold (09)
Ski Sunday Scandi Jumper, p.24-27
The icon at the top of the page is incorrect, the Drops Air yarn used is actually Aran weight The Yarn quantities on the sizing table are incorrect and should be. Yarn A – 7 balls (8 balls for size 16-18 and 9…

Delphinium Shawl by Megan Hocking, p. 60-62
We have corrections for the following rows:
Row 10 Ch2, htr in st at base of ch, *2htr in next ch-2 sp, htr in next st; repeat from * to point, (2htr, ch2, 2htr) in point, **htr in next st, 2 htr in next ch-2 sp; repeat from ** to last st, 2htr in last st, turn. [80 htr]

Row 36 Repeat Row 8. [79 5-tr groups, 2 3-tr groups]
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.
Row 3 Ch1 (does not count as st) *(dc, ch2, 5htr-puff) in next ch-2 sp, ch1, rep from * to last Puff St, dc in top of beg ch-2, turn.
Rows 4-18 Repeat Rows 2-3 seven more times, repeat Row 2 once more.
Amigurumi Santa p.38.
On the LEG (MAKE 2) section, there is no round 15. This is a mistake with the numbering and the pattern remains unaffected.
On the BELT section, it should say ‘Using Yarn B’ rather than Yarn C.
Supernova Granny Blanket p.69.
On the JOINING and EDGING section, it incorrectly says to use ‘Pearl Grey’. This is a mistake and should say Gray Lilac.
Lacy Top, p.44.
In the Yoke section, Round 3 should read “2tr in first st, tr in each tr around working (tr, ch1, tr) in each of first 3 ch-sps and 1 tr in last ch-sp, ch1, ss to top of beg ch-3.”
Centrepiece Trees p.21.
The hook size required for this project is a 2.5mm hook.
Lacy Bauble Trio p.20
We incorrectly credited the Lacy Bauble Trio to Anne Egan, this design was actually by Hannah Cross.
Tartan Skirt p.25.
The yarn quantities for Yarn A should be 6: 6: 6: 6: 7: 7: 7 balls of Cherry for respective sizes 8-20.
When you reach the Waist Shaping, continue working in rounds and in the Stripe pattern as established.
Fox Hoodie p.55
The yarn quantities for Yarn A should read 4 (4: 5) balls of yarn for sizes 2, 4 and 6 years respectively.
On the Back, after working on the first side of the neck shaping, you will need to skip the central 20 (21: 23) sts instead of 26 (27: 29) sts as stated.
Hook to Hook Challenge Block Stitch Blanket on p.53
For this pattern the yarn quantities should read as follows:
Yarn A 5 balls of Light Grey (15)
Yarn B 1 ball of Lime (24)
Boho Mandala on p.25
Yarn D Toffee (3656) is listed but is not required and doesn’t appear in the pattern.
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.
Pedro the Donkey on p.43.
One of the brackets in the reins section is in the wrong place, it should read as following:
Row 1 (RS) Dc in second ch from hook, dc in next ch, (htr in next ch, ch3, ss into the third ch from hook) until last 2 ch, htr in next ch, dc in last ch. [36 sts]
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.
Easter Amigurumi Supplement
Gwendoline the Lamb, p.22
The abbreviation for Bobble should read:
(Yrh, insert hook into next st, yrh and pull up loop, yrh and draw through 2 loops) 4 times, inserting hook in same st each time, yrh and draw through all 5 loops on hook.
Evangeline the Rabbit, p.7
There is some text missing at the bottom of the last column on p7. It should read ‘rejoin Yarn B with a ss to the first skipped st of Row 14’.
A Good Vintage granny cardigan.
For the starting chain numbers please see below.
Size 8-10: foundation chain of 173
Size 12-14: foundation chain of 197
Size 16-18: foundation chain of 221
Size 20-22: foundation chain of 245
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
The stitch count at the end of Round 1 of the Leg should be the total number of tr not the total number of sts as stated. There are [29 (33: 37) tr] after Round 1.
January Blues mandala on page 96
The repeat section of Round 7 should read *ch6, skip next dc of Round 5, (tr, ch1, tr, ch1, tr) in next tr of Round 5; rep from * 6 more times, complete as written.
Pick ‘n’ Mix CAL pattern on page 33 (subscribers only):
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.
