My Little Angel

We have a correction to the yarn colours for this kit:

Yarn A is Peach (the darker beige/biscuit coloured yarn used for the main body of the angel).

Yarn C is Iced Pink (the pink coloured yarn used for the cheeks).

There’s also a correction to the dress:

CIRCULAR BASE OF THE DRESS

Cast on 3 sts using 3mm needles and Yarn B.

Row 1 (RS) (Kfb) to end. [6 sts]

Row 2 (Kfb, K1) to end. [9 sts]

Row 3 (Kfb, K1) four times, Kfb. [14 sts]

Row 4 (Kfb, K2) four times, Kfb, K1. [19 sts]

Row 5 (Kfb, K3) four times, Kfb, K2. [24 sts]

Row 6 (Kfb, K4) four times, Kfb, K3. [29 sts]

Cast off.

Pull the fabric into a circular shape and sew up the seam from the centre to the edge of the circle. Join it to the hemline of the dress, sewing together one stitch of the hemline with one stitch of the circular base, continuing this way (stitch by stitch) until you have worked all the stitches around.

The row numbering on the hands is incorrect. It should be as follows:

Cast on 2 sts using 3mm needles and Yarn A for Hands.

Row 1 (RS) (Kfb) to end. [4 sts]

Work 3 rows in st st, beg with a P row.

Change to Yarn B.

Row 5 Kfb, K2, kfb. [6 sts]

Row 6 Knit.

Work 5 rows in st st, begin with a K row.

Row 12 P2tog, P2, p2tog. [4 sts]

Cast off.

Sweet Treats

Row 23 for the Back on both Master and Miss Gingerbread is missing the cast-on stitches that Row 23 for the Front has – so one of the arms won’t be created for the back. Row 23 should be:

BACK
Row 23 With RS facing, rejoin yarn to 2 sets of 5 held sts, cast on 8 sts, K18. [18 sts]

The Snowman

The Left and Right feet are incorrectly labelled and worked in the wrong order. Please work as follows:

Knit the pattern labelled as “Left Foot and Leg” first, break the yarn and leave the stitches on a holder.

Next knit the part labelled “Right Foot and Leg”, but do not break off the yarn at the end of Row 24.

To join the legs, work as follows:

Row 25 P26 sts on needle, with WS facing, P26 held sts. [52 sts]

Then continue as written.

Stable

We’ve created a downloadable pattern for a stable to go with the nativity scene, which you can print out. Click the link here.

It’s best if you can print directly onto sheets of card, although you could always print onto paper and then stick the paper onto card if you prefer. It’s also important that you set your printer to print at ‘Actual size’ or ‘100%’.

Each sheet of the template is labelled from A to I, and the instructions refer to these letters to make things nice and easy!

Afternoon Tea

A couple of the numbers are wrong in the size 12 pattern.

BACK and FRONT should both begin:
Cast on 94 (98: 104: 110: 118: 122: 126: 134) sts using 3.25mm needles.

Then on the armhole decreases, again on both Back and Front, it should read:

These 2 rows set armhole shaping.
Dec 1 st as set at each end of next 1 (1: 1: 3: 3: 3: 3: 5) rows, then on 2 (3: 2: 2: 3: 3: 3: 3) foll alt rows.
[75 (79: 83: 85: 89: 93: 95: 99) sts]

Purple Haze

After the Back and Front shaping is complete, the knitter is asked to leave sts on a holder. This line was in error and should be ignored, as the next section will be knitted on these stitches.

During the wrap and turn section at the end of the neck shaping, on some sizes the w&t will end up in a cable. If you find this isn’t tidy for you, you can place the wrap in the purl sts to one side of the cable instead.

Chick Tea Cosy

Row 8 should read: (RS) K1, k2tog, yo, K3, *yo, sl1, k2tog, psso, yo, K3; rep from * to last 3 sts, yo, k2togtbl, K1.

Bunny jumper

The “TO MAKE UP” instructions should say:

Press pieces according to the ball band instructions. Place back so that shaped section of back shoulder lays on top of the shaped section of front shoulder, matching markers. Loosely sew the overlapped rows together at armhole edge only. Sew sleeves seams and side seams. Place the centre point of the top of the sleeve to the marker. With right sides together pin the sleeve into the armholes, sew into place using small backstitches. Sew in all ends. Make a pompom using Yarn B and attach to the bunny motif.

The tension was wrong for this pattern and should read:

16 sts and 22 rows to measure 10x10cm (4x4in) over stocking stitch using 5.5 mm needles

After the cast on row, change to 7mm needles before working in pattern stitch.

All the pattern stitch sections will be on 7mm needles and the st st sections on 5.5mm needles.

There has been some confusion about how the first 2 rows of pattern are worked. Hopefully this should make it clearer:

Row 2 (WS) K1 (1: 1: 0: 2: 1: 1: 2), (P2, K2) 0 (1: 0: 1: 0: 0: 1: 0) times, work 6 sts of Chart before repeat, repeat the sts in the the repeat box 8 (8: 9: 9: 10: 11: 11: 12) times, work the last 6 sts of chart, (K2, P2) 0 (1: 0: 1: 0: 0: 1: 0) times, K1 (1: 0: 0: 2: 1: 1: 2).

Winter Walks Poncho

In the right front, the first 2 rows are worked until the piece measures 5cm. It then says: “Rep last 2 rows until work meas 8cm”. This is a cut-and-paste error from placing the pattern into our house style and should be crossed out.

Also the buttonhole rows throughout should read: K6, K2tog, yo, work to end.

Market Day (Supplement)

As the original Lang yarns has been discontinued, we recommended Deramores Vintage Chunky as an alternative. There’s no orange shade however, so we substituted the orange for red (Robin, shade 011).

If you would prefer an orange alternative, we suggest WI Soft & Chunky, which comes in an orange shade (Masarla), or MyBoshi No 1 in Orange.

The charts don’t fit into the pattern on the Body. Using the amended charts here, work as folls:

For Chart A, you should begin on stitch 8 (3:1) and end on stitch 4 (3:7).

For Chart B, you should begin on stitch 11 (5:2) and end on stitch 3 (9:12). This ensures the people are central.

Queen’s Birthday Tea Cosy

The Front is missing Row 16. This should be Knit.

The Hair is missing a Row 11.

Hair Rows 12-17 are numbered wrong – the pattern should go like this:

Row 9 K12, turn.

Row 10 Sl1, K11.

Row 11 K15, turn.

Row 12 Sl1, K14.

Row 13 K18, turn.

Row 14 Sl1, K17.

Row 15 K19, turn.

Row 16 Sl1, K18.

Row 17 Knit.

Repeat rows 7-17 once more.

As the piece is worked in garter stitch don’t worry about the fact that rows 7 and 17 are both RS rows – what is essentially happening is that the short row shaping worked on the right side of the piece will then be worked on the left side, so the piece will be longer at the sides and shorter in the middle.

Waterlily

The Left decreases for Shoulder Slope should read:

Decrease 1 st at each end of the next row and 3 foll 4th (4th: 4th: 4th: 6th: 6th: 6th: 6th: 6th: 6th) rows.

This design is by Joanne Scrace, not Jo Allport as printed in the issue.

Row 2 of the Shape Armhole section should be ‘purl’.

Right Front section should read:

(Note you are working an inc on the neck side every 4th row throughout)

With RS facing, using circular needle, pick up and knit 9 (9: 12: 12: 14: 15: 14: 14: 14: 14) sts across the front of the Right Shoulder.

Floral Hues Scarf

There were a couple of typos in Row 2 of the spot pattern (column 1 page 27.) It should read as follows:

There was an issue with the printing of the chart for this pattern. In the bottom half of the chart, the blue squares appear to be almost the same colour, when in fact they should be two shades of blue. Download the corrected chart here.

Candy Floss Slippers

When joining the cuff to the main slipper, pick up the 42 sts with the WS facing. After working rows 1-5, repeat rows 2-5 another 6 times (not rows 2-4 as printed).

When working the Neck band, on the first rib WS round after the pick up, knit to the marked st, P1, K to end of round. All references to sk2po should be worked as s2kpo as folls:

Donkey Jumper

We made a couple of errors in the hood section of this pattern. If worked as published, the hood will be on back-to-front.

Firstly, work the whole hood on double pointed needles or a circular needle, as you’ll be working a semi-circle in rows, so you’ll need the flexibility.

Begin with the RS facing on the left front. Slip the first 5 (5:6:6:7:7) sts from the holder onto a second holder, and knit the rem 5 (5:6:6:7:7). Pick up and knit 23 (23: 23: 24: 23: 23) sts evenly along left side of neck, pick up and knit 32 (32: 34: 36: 40: 40) from cast off stitches at back of neck between markers, pick up and knit 23 (23: 23: 24: 23: 23) sts evenly along right side of neck, then knit the 5 (5:6:6:7:7) sts from the second holder. Turn work and purl back, inc 4 sts evenly across next row.

Continue to work as printed from Row 1 of Hood.

Alan Dart’s Seaside Mobile

There is a quantity error in the Seaside Mobile instructions. For the crab’s claws it says to make two pieces, when it should be four pieces. This then gives you two pairs, for in the making-up instructions it says ‘sew a pair of claws to the top edge of each leg’.

Oh So Sweet Socks

The 5th and 6th stitches are mixed up on the leg chart.  The 5th stitch should be SSK and the 6th knit, to reflect the opposite side of the chart.

When turning the heel, row 4 should be worked as purl and row 5 should be worked as knit.

Summer Fête

When you repeat rows 17-32, don’t work the kfb on rows 17, 23, 29 and 31, just work it as a K1 instead.  The kfb should just be worked on the rows specified for the repeat.

Right shoulder: Rejoin yarn to right shoulder edge would make the 1st row a WS row. All shaping should be worked on the RS rows, not the WS rows.

Lazy Daisy

There was a difference in wording the top of heel in this pattern from the original from Clare Devine.  After the line “you will now rejoin the heel and instep stitches and resume working in the round” Clare’s version said “knit to last st of heel, slip this stitch knitwise onto your RH needle, pick the bar between the heel and instep needle with your RH needle, insert LH needle into 2 sts and knit them together”. This means that the picked up stitch would be worked together with the slipped st, not the stitch after it. Also all the double-wraps should be knitted with the sts.

Sky Blue

On the Front, the K sts at the beginning and end of Row 5 should be the same as that of Rows 1 and 3. The Shape Front Neck and Shape Shoulder section on the Front should read as follows:

Shimmer

A few people seem to be having problems with the way this stitch pattern was written, so hopefully this explanation should be a little clearer.

Row 1 This stitch should actually be wrapped three times like the rest of the row. Make sure you are wrapping 3 times on each knit stitch, not working 3 yarn-overs after the knit st is complete.

Row 2 You only need to work each stitch once, so you end up with a long loop for each stitch. So knit it once, then let the extra loops “drop” before working the next stitch. This row creates the long loops.

Row 3 You will knit the first stitch, then (into the next 3 sts all together) knit but don’t drop 3 sts off, yo, knit 3 together again and drop sts off. This row creates the eyelets.

The hood lining is missing the place marker, this should be after stitch 66 (right in the centre of the cast on sts) and should be placed before any sts have been cast off. If you have already cast the sts off, just make sure it is in the middle of the sts you have on the needle.

Kaleidoscope (Subscriber pattern)

It’s worked in the round, so the pattern is incorrect. It should be knit and purl alternating rows. There was also an error in the amount of rows you should work before casting off. The pattern states to cast off after round 14, however there should be an instruction after round 14 saying “Continue to work the 2 round stripe pattern and increase as set until you have 60 sts on each needle”. Cast off.

Whirlybird

All references to C4B and C4F should read C8B and C8F, and should be worked as thus:

On the Back, before you begin the Openwork pattern, work 4 rows in st st (not 3).

When you get to the Front, it should read Work as given for Back to **. Change to yarn C and cont in st st for 10 rows.

Then when you get to the Chart placement, the Sleeve increases should be worked when work meas 6cm from beg of Chart (not Row 7 as printed), and the neck shaping should be worked when work meas 11 (13: 14: 15: 16)cm from beg of Chart (not row 14 (20: 22: 25: 28) as printed)

There was an error in the published version of the Solstice Socks which differed from that of the designer. In the heel, our version reads Sl1 pwise, P14 (15: 18), p2tog, p1, turn. The correct instruction is Sl1 pwise, P15 (16: 19), p2tog, P1, turn.

There is an error with the sizes in the pattern for this jumper. The sizes in the table were changed at the last minute, and weren’t corrected in the pattern to reflect this. All references to sizes in the written pattern (ie Sizes 5-6, 7-8 ONLY, etc) are colour-coded correctly but read the wrong size. Therefore, you should follow the instructions based on the correct colour you have been following, and ignore the numbers printed.

Christmas Bell Pattern

The last line of this pattern was missed out in the magazine. Once the bell is complete, the picot edge created in the cast on should be folded in and sewn using the thread from the jingle bell.  This creates the ridge around the bottom of the bell.

For the 30cm cowl, the correct number of stitches to cast on is 51 (not 57).

Work straight until front is the same length as back to shape shoulder, finishing with a WS row.

Sassy Stripes

A couple of readers said they found it hard to increase in pattern on the sleeves. The best way to do this is to work the outside decreases on increase rows as a k2tog or an ssk instead of sl1, k2tog, psso. The reason for this is that you only decrease by one stitch, but make two yarn overs either side, so are effectively increasing by one stitch.

Butterfly Blue socks

We included our standard text for ‘How to use our charts’ but that’s designed for when you’re knitting flat, and these socks are knitted in the round.

So the row numbers are right on the chart, but you should ignore all the references to wrong side rows.

Every row on the chart is read from right to left, the empty squares are always knit, and the black circle symbol is always purl.

Double the Fun

DOUBLE THE FUN TEA COSY

After Decrease row 2, there should be another row that reads:

Next row K3, P8, K11, P8, K3.

And Row 5 should read: K2, P1, K2, C4F, K2, P1, *K1, P1; rep from * to last 11 sts, K2, C4F, K2, P1, K2.

Row 3 should read: P1, K1, P1, k2tog, yo, K1, *P1, K1; rep from * for 30 sts, P2, K2, C4F, K2, P2, K8.

Playing Out

All the “inc1” instructions in this pattern should be worked as M1, NOT knit into the next stitch twice.

There was a typo in this section when you are increasing. It should read:

We missed a couple of blue squares on the Seahorse chart. On row 13 the 4th square from the right should be blue, and on row 14 the 3rd square from the right should also be blue. This matches the pattern in rows 8 and 9.

Start Shaping

Round 7 The stitch count at the end of the round should be 112. (56 sts for each side.)

The instructions for Row 1 of Side 1 were also a stitch out, and there was a typo in the stitch count in Row 2.

They should read:

Side 1 Row 1 (WS) K3, P6, K1, P1, working patt as set, work to last 11 sts, P1, K1, P6, K3.

Row 2 (RS) Patt 11, ssk, patt 32, k2tog, patt 11. [112 sts.]  The dec on every RS row “as set” is based on Row 2.

Little Girl’s Dress

A reader found an error in this pattern from Bergere de France. In the Front and Back section, the Age 6 size should be increased as set every 8 rows 13 times, (not 3 as printed) to end up with 236 sts.

Flower Headband

A couple of errors crept into Row 2 of the main section of this pattern, once the lace patterning begins.

It should read: Row 2 K1 *P7, (P1, K1) into double yarn overs, P10, (P1, K1, into double yos, P to last st, K1.  The stitches in this row then add up to 30.

Summer Meadow

There is a problem with a few of the stitch counts in the front section of this pattern.

From the increase row, the pattern should read:

Next row (increase row) Knit to marker, slip marker, kfb, knit to 1 st before marker, kfb, slip marker, knit to end of row.

Next row (WS) Purl.

Repeat the last 2 rows until your knitting measures approx 31 (31:33:33:35:35:37:37)cm and you have 123 (128:140:148:153:158:166:173) sts.

Continue to shape at markers only until the armhole (from beg of side incs) meas approx 15 (15:17:17:20:20:22:22)cm and you have 179 (184: 200: 208: 235: 240: 256: 263) sts. Using the 3 needle cast off method and with RS together, cast off 35 (37:41:45:52:54:58:61) shoulder sts from front and back.

Break yarn. Rejoin yarn, turn knitting and cast off the same number of sts for the other shoulder. Break yarn.

Turn your knitting the right way out, rejoin the yarn to the neck edge, knit across 93 (94:98:98:109:110:110:111) front neck sts and 49 (50:50:50:51:52:52:53) back neck sts. 142 (144:148:148:160:162:162:164) sts.

Check Mate (Supplement)

The stitch pattern is written to be worked flat, but the dress pattern is written in rounds. Instead use the following instructions:

Round 1 *K5, P5; rep from * to end of round.

Round 2 Knit.

Round 3 As round 1.

Round 4 Knit.

Round 5 Knit.

Round 6 *P5, K5; rep from * to end of round.

Round 7 Knit.

Round 8 Knit.

Round 9 Knit.

Round 10 Knit.

These 10 rows form the pattern; rep these 10 rows 3 (3: 3: 4) times more. When the pattern changes to work in rows at the divide the stitches should be correct.

Slippers (Subscriber pattern)

We have a couple of corrections for the subscribers-only slippers pattern in issue 107:

They should be knitted with the yarn double, to achieve the correct tension. So follow the pattern as follows:

Cast on 29 sts using 5mm needles and the yarn doubled.

Row 1 Ktbl to end of row, to form a neat edge.

Row 2 (WS) (K1, P1), rep to last st, K1.

Row 3 (K1, P1), rep to last st, K1.

Row 4 P1, K9, P1, K7, P1, K9, P1.

Row 5 Knit.

Repeat rows 4 and 5 until work measures 10cm from the cast on row ending with RS facing for next row.

Mister Fox

The “To Fit” chest sizes for each age are wrong.  They should be listed as:

0-3mths: 41cm / 16.25in

3-6mths: 43cm / 17in

6-9mths: 44cm / 17.25in

9-12 mths: 46cm / 18in

12-18mths: 48cm / 19in

2 yrs: 52cm / 20.5in

3 yrs: 55cm / 22in

4 yrs: 59cm / 23.25in

5yrs: 61cm / 24in

The “Actual Chest” measurement for age 5 is missing, this should be 68cm.

Photo Frame

The instructions for the photo frame in the Father’s Day collection were a little confusing, as the designer intended it in landscape orientation but our photo showed it in portrait orientation. To clarify, the instructions we listed as “TOP AND BOTTOM OF FRAME” should say “LONG EDGE OF FRAME”, and the instructions we printed as ‘SIDE OF FRAME” should say “SHORT EDGE OF FRAME”.

CORNER

The Corner of the blanket also contained an error, and a few stitch counts were missing. Note that yfwd means to bring the yarn from back to front between the needles, in the way you would to make a purl after a knit stitch. Also after a slipped stitch is moved back to the left needle, the work is turned and the new row starts there. Below is a copy of the pattern including some notes, as a few of you were having trouble with it.  Note that the error is a yo missed out in the third row.

Next row K2tog, K3, yo, ssk, K2. [8 sts]

Next row P6, K to end.

Next row K2tog, yo K2, yo, ssk, K2. 8 sts. (make sure you do the yo in bold – this was missed out of the pattern)

Next row P6, K to end.

Next row K2tog, K2, yo, ssk, K1, sl 1, yfwd, sl st back onto left needle. (With st still on left needle, turn work and begin next row here.) [7 sts]

Next row Yfwd, P to end. The yfwd has now wrapped the end st.

Next row K5, sl 1, yfwd, sl st back onto left needle. (We’re now continuing to wrap the next st in from the last wrap, so again once you have brought the yarn forward between needles and slipped the st back to the left needle, you’ll turn work here and begin again on the WS row.  You should still have 7 sts.)

Next row Yfwd, P to end.

Next row K4, sl 1, yfwd, sl st back onto left needle. Turn work.

Next row Yfwd, P to end.

Next row K3, Sl 1, yfwd, sl st back onto left needle. Turn work.

Folksy Jumper

The key for the chart in this pattern was missed off. You can download it here.

Red Riding Hood cape

The pattern sections should be side, diamond, heart, diamond, repeat once.

Set up round, just after cast on 92 sts, should be P1, K8, P1, pm…

On the Hearts section:

Round 5 should read: P4, T3B, K2, T3F, K4

Round 13 should read: P1, K1, T2F…

As all three pattern sections have different lengths of repeat rows, readers have suggested putting all three on one sheet of paper, and then using a line marker. A tension swatch is also particularly important with this pattern.

The first paragraph in “For Middle Section” should read: “Cont to inc at both ends of the Open Diamond section on every 4th foll round, working the new sts in st st until there are 22 (26: 28) sts in this section.”

Some of the charts contained errors, and some of the written pattern contained errors. Please contact us at simplyknitting@immediate.co.uk if you would like the updated charts. Corrections are as follows:

Right Set up chart

Row 20 should be P11, not P12.

Left Edging chart

Row 1 K2tog, yo, K4, yo, K5, (yo, k2tog) twice, K1. (This is printed correctly but the chart was wrong.)

Little Red Riding Hood

The 2nd inc row of Little Red Riding Hood’s basket missed out a second ‘K8’, so the line should read as follows:

Simply Knitting Issue 96

Hole in One

There is an error in the charts for this men’s tank top. There should be a pattern repeat marked after 12 stitches, because your stitch count is 12 stitches + 1. So you should work stitches 1-12 from right to left on every RS row, and from stitches 12-1 from left to right on every wrong side row. Stitch 13 will be the last st on every RS row and the first st on every WS row.

Hippie Hamsters

There is an error in the yarns listed. For the Patchouli Hamster, the Sirdar Baby Crofter Lime/Aqua yarn shade (now called ‘Angus’ ) should be 163 not 168 as quoted.

Summer Holiday

The pattern should have read:

Sizes 8-16 & 20-22 only

Next row K0 (3: 0: 4: 0: –: 2: 1), work from row 3 of Lace Pattern A, repeating the pattern 8 (8: 9: 9: 10: –: 11: 12) times in total, K0 (3: 0: 4: 0: –: 2: 1).

Size 18 only

Next row K4, work from row 3 of Lace pattern B, repeating the pattern 10 times in total, K4.

All sizes

This row sets lace pattern placement. **

Now working 12 row rep as set, from chart or written instructions, cont until armhole meas 19 (19: 20: 21: 22: 22: 23: 23)cm, ending with RS facing for next row.

Lace pattern B only applies if you are knitting the size 18 version. For any other size, please continue repeating Lace Pattern A.

Tweed Textures

We missed the sizes off the pattern for these socks. Here they are:

Small 3-4, foot circ 18.75cm (7.5in)

Medium 5-6, foot circ 21.25cm (8.5in)

Large 7-8, foot circ 23.75cm (9.5in)

Daisy Bag

There is a mistake in the “Materials you will need” section of the pattern. We test knit the patterns, and state the amount of wool used by the test knitter. However, in this case it looks like the quantities are wrong. Rather than two balls of the Oatmeal (shade 41) you will need three balls. You may also need another ball for the outer lining and inner lining. Please let us know if you end up needing more than one ball of the other colours.

Jar Covers

The heading was missing after “For the larger size only”. After “Work 3 rounds even” it should then say “For both sizes” and you should follow the instructions beginning “Next round*K1, k2tog;…” for both the small and large covers, until the end.

There are two versions of this Sublime pattern, a wrap and a cardigan. While we showed the images for the cardigan, we accidentally printed the pattern for the wrap. Please email simplyknitting@immediate.co.uk for the cardigan pattern.

Fine Romance

On several of the rows it states to yfwd three or four times, but it should only be twice. The affected rows are 3, 4, 11, 12, 19 and 20 and the correct instruction should read (yfwd) twice.

If there are any more, the ‘arms’ of the butterfly stitch will end up being rather droopy and baggy.

Queenie Hat

The first chart for Small and Medium sizes has the repeat lines in the wrong place. Reading from right to left, the repeat line should be one stitch less, ending after the 5 Mustard stitches, in both sizes. The stitch repeat will therefore be 16 for the small size and 18 for the medium size.

On row one of the chart there should be a C6B over stitches 89-95 and stitches 99-105. Click here to download the corrected chart.

Wherever you read SKPO it should say SK2PO – slip one, knit two stitches together, then pass the slipped stitch over. So the correct version reads:

Row 1 K3, (yfwd, SK2PO, yfwd, K1) to last st, K1.

Row 2 P1, (K1, P3) to last 3 sts, K3.

Row 3 K5, (yfwd, SK2PO, yfwd, K1) to last 3 sts, K3.

These 4 rows form pattern.

The charts for this pattern were missing the starting point for the size 12 body. When you’re knitting a size 12 garment and come to chart A, please start from Row 3, the same row as body sizes 8 and 10.

There are also some corrections for the Neck Shaping and the Raglan shaping:

Shape Neck

Next row (RS; decreasing row): *ssk, (work to m, slm) twice, work to last 2 sts, k2tog.

Cont in patt 3 more rows.

Rep all from * 8 (10, 14, 11, 16, 16, 18, 19) times more.

Sizes 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18 only: Next row (RS; decreasing row) *ssk, (work to m, slm) twice, work to last 2 sts, k2tog.

Cont in patt 5 more rows.

Rep all from *4 (3, 1, 3, 0, 0, NA, NA) times more. 14 (15, 17, 16, 18, 18, 19, 20) sts on either side of Front Neck decreased.

Note: Neck shaping will finish before finishing the raglan shaping so continue in patt until the end of the raglan shaping.

You join the sleeves and body on 94th and 95th rows. Then work the patt on 96th row. Raglan shaping starts from 97th row over 50 (52, 54, 56, 58, 58, 60, 60) rows.

Feeling Good

The armhole shaping for the left front is wrong. It should be dec 1st at armhole edge of next 5 (7…)rows, not dec 1st at beg of next 5 (7…) rows. Also the placing of the lace panel is wrong on the right front (it gives the same instructions as the left front) so these instructions should be reversed.

Thanks to Maria Birchall for sending this correction. She says: “I discovered a mistake on the back.

You should knit rather than purl for all sizes.”

Also, Row 9 includes instructions which read k2tog, K5, *K26. This is incorrect and should read k2tog, P5, *K26.

The stitch count is wrong after the armhole shaping and should read:

Shape armhole

With RS facing, cast off 3 sts at beg of next row, then 2 st at beg of foll alt row. [88 (86) sts]

Cast off 1 st at beg of 3 (4) foll alt row. [82 (86) sts]

When back meas 20¾ (22)in, 53 (56)cm, cast off.

The collar should read K1, P1 rib, not K2, P2.

Luxe Lace Socks

Round 1 should read *K4, P3 to keep the rib at the top in line with the rest of the pattern.

There is also an abbreviation missing from the side bar. P2sso means ‘pass 2 slip stitches over’.

To clarify, therefore, the instruction ‘sl 2 together, K1, p2sso’ is not a misprint: slip two stitches at the same time (as though to k2tog), knit the following stitch then pass the two slipped stitches over the stitch just knit. This creates the vertical decrease in the lace pattern.

On page 26, in the “back” section an instruction tells you to “work in st st until back meas 22(22: 21: 24: 23: 25)in, 22(22: 21: 24: 23: 25)cm”. The centimetres are correct. The inches should read: 8¾ (8¾: 8¼: 9½: 9: 9¾)in.

Bundle of Joy papoose

There is an error in the first row. It should read:

K7, *P1,K1, P1, K6; rep from * to last st, K1. Then Row 2 is correct, K1, P7 *K1, P8; rep from * to last 9 sts, K1, P7, K1.

The same rule will apply on page 39, the first “next row” you come to after row 29 will be a repeat of round 1.

It looks like aside from missing the K1 from the end of the row, there were brackets around the (P1,K1,P1) that shouldn’t have been there, possibly causing further confusion.

Berry Ripple

There’s no row 5. This is a typo: there’s no missing row. Just continue from Row 4 to Row 6 (which should have been labelled Row 5) and on through the pattern.

Where the pattern says to ‘Repeat these 13 rows’ it should say ‘Repeat Rows 6-13’.

Diamonds and Purls

There was a piece missing from the first line of the wrap pattern in issue 49, and line two has been amended slightly.

Row 1 (WS) P5, K2, P6, K2, P5, yo, P5, yo, P6, yo, P6, yo, P5, K2, P6, K2, P5.
NOTE: the yo’s on this row don’t become stitches, they are there to provide extra yarn for the slip stitches that make the diamond shapes, so don’t pull your yo’s too tight.

Row 2 K1, P2W, P2W, P2, Sl 1 wyib, K4, Sl 1 wyib, P2, P2W, P2W, K1, drop yo from previous row, Sl 1 wyib, K4, Sl 1 wyib, drop yo from previous row, K5, Sl 1 wyib, drop yo from previous row, K4, Sl 1 wyib, drop yo from previous row, K1, P2W, P2W, P2, Sl 1 wyib, K4, Sl 1 wyib, P2, P2W, P2W, K1.

As you knit the next few rows you’ll find you always slip the same stitch, so it gets longer and longer, and you always do the P2W above the previous P2Ws, so the pattern can feel complicated to start with – we found ourselves crossing out stitches as we did them for the first couple of rows – but after that you can see how the pattern is shaping up and it gets easier to see where you are.

Small Wonders Christmas Pudding decoration

We missed out the making up instructions. Here they are:

Run a length of yarn through the cast on stitches of the pudding and draw up to form a point. With the wrong (p) side facing outwards, stitch up 1/3 of the side seam. Repeat the process with the cast off seam and then turn the work right (k) side out. Stuff lightly and then sew up remaining side seam.

Run a length of yarn through the cast on stitches of the icing and draw up to form a point. With the wrong (p) side facing outwards, stitch up the entire side seam. Turn work right (k) side out and place on top of pudding. Stitch cast off seam in place around the pudding – try to make the seam as wavy as possible, just like authentic dribbly icing. icing.

We’ve also had a couple of readers asking about the increasing for the pudding and other decorations. Clare has a slightly unusual way of doing her increases which is causing a bit of confusion. Clare increases between stitches, so her instruction “inc 1, K1” will turn 10 sts into 20. If it’s easier, you can replace each inc 1, K1 with kfb (knit into front and back of stitch). That means that if you’re knitting the pudding the increase rows would translate as follows:

Row 2 *Inc 1, K1; rep from * to end becomes:

Row 2 Kfb in every st.

Row 4 *Inc 1, K2; rep from * to end (effectively [inc 1, K1], K1) becomes:

Row 4 *kfb, K1; rep from * to end.

Row 8 *Inc 1, K2, inc 1, K1; rep from * to end becomes:

Row 8 *Kfb, K1, kfb; rep from * to end.

Cream Caramel cardigan

We’ve had a few phonecalls from readers confused by the pattern repeats in this cardigan. Here’s what you should be working on for the first dozen rows after you’ve finished the ribbing:

Row 1 Pattern 1 foundation row (P5, K4), Pattern 2 row 1 as many times as your size requires, Pattern 3 foundation row (K4, P5).
This is the only time you need to do the foundation row for patterns 1 & 3.
Row 2 Pattern 1 row 1, Pattern 2 row 2 as many times as your size requires, Pattern 3 row 1. (As this is an even-numbered row, you’ll be starting with pattern 3, then 2, then 1.)
Row 3 Pattern 1 row 2, Pattern 2 row 3 as many times as your size requires, Pattern 3 row 2.
Row 4 Pattern 1 row 3, Pattern 2 row 4 as many times as your size requires, Pattern 3 row 3. (As this is an even-numbered row, you’ll be starting with pattern 3, then 2, then 1.)
Row 5 Pattern 1 row 4, Pattern 2 row 5 as many times as your size requires, Pattern 3 row 4.
Row 6 Pattern 1 row 1, Pattern 2 row 6 as many times as your size requires, Pattern 3 row 1. (As this is an even-numbered row, you’ll be starting with pattern 3, then 2, then 1.)
Row 7 Pattern 1 row 2, Pattern 2 row 1 as many times as your size requires, Pattern 3 row 2.
Row 8 Pattern 1 row 3, Pattern 2 row 2 as many times as your size requires, Pattern 3 row 3. (As this is an even-numbered row, you’ll be starting with pattern 3, then 2, then 1.)
Row 9 Pattern 1 row 4, Pattern 2 row 3 as many times as your size requires, Pattern 3 row 4.
Row 10 Pattern 1 row 1, Pattern 2 row 4 as many times as your size requires, Pattern 3 row 1. (As this is an even-numbered row, you’ll be starting with pattern 3, then 2, then 1.)
Row 11 Pattern 1 row 2, Pattern 2 row 5 as many times as your size requires, Pattern 3 row 2.
Row 12 Pattern 1 row 3, Pattern 2 row 6 as many times as your size requires, Pattern 3 row 3. (As this is an even-numbered row, you’ll be starting with pattern 3, then 2, then 1.)

By this point you should be able to see the pattern clearly – keep working in the pattern until the front panel you’re working on reaches 19cm (7½in), ending with RS facing, and then you can start the shapings.
