Magic Carpet Throw Crochet-Along
We have noticed that there is a small error in the key labels on the Inset Mosaic Pattern 3 chart. The green squares should be Yarn B2 (Bottle Green); and the cream square should be Yarn A (Arctic White).
Baby Blanket – p54-55
For Round 7 and for all Round 7 repeats you should work a BPhtr rather than a FPhtr as listed
On Round 9 you should join the yarn into the fourth st across any side. At the end of each side the final popcorn should be worked into the fourth st before the corner.
Magic Carpet Throw Crochet-Along
Unfortunately both of the charts in for the magic carpet CAL in issue 111 are incorrect. We would like to make clear that the written instructions and the colour placement in the charts are correct, however some of the symbols are missing or in the wrong place. We would also like to make it clear that this was a mistake by the Simply Crochet team, and not by the designer Rosina Plane. We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience, and you can find the correct charts below.

After Row 2, you are instructed to repeat Row 2 a certain number more times. This should read ‘Work 21 (22: 23: 24: 25: 26) more rows as Row 2’ rather than what is written.

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.

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.
