SPRING

Ponchillo, pages 64-65

“Extra warmth for the shoulders and neck is just what you need for a chilly spring day. The ruffles are for drama and character.” Yarn: DROPS Merino Extra Fine by Garn Studio

We regret that there is an error in rows 2 and 3 of the Ponchillo pattern. The pattern correction is as follows:

Row 2: Ch 5, 1 tr in 3rd st from hk, tr in first st,  [ch 1, skip 1 st, 1 tr] 13 (17) times, [ch 1, skip 1 st, 1 dc] 6 (10) times, [ch 1, skip 1 st, 1 hdc] 4 times, turn. (15 [19] tr, 6 [10] dc, 4 hdc)

Additionally, we regret there is also an error in the instructions for the ruffles; that correction is as follows:

This is the first “rung “ of the ladder, 1 sc, 1 hdc, 5 dc across (working around ladder rung), (rotate base 180°, 7dc across next rung of ladder) 8 (12) times, (rotate base 180°, 5 dc around next rung of ladder) 12 times, (rotate base 180°, 4 dc around next rung of ladder) 7 times, rotate base 180° (2 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc) around last rung of ladder. Fasten off.

SPRING PREVIEW

Diamond Bag, pages 88-90
This bag was inspired by a motif design in a 1970s craft book, though  you can change the design to suit your bag or outfi t using the same principles.

We have found that alternative instructions also work to create the diamond motif. Those instructions are as follows:

Diamond Motif

Rnd 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc in each of next 9 ch, 3 sc in end ch. Turn the work so the base of the chain is facing you, sc in the base of next 10 ch. (22 sts)

Work in spirals as follows:
Rnd 2: 3 sc in next st, 4 sc, 3 sc in next st, 5 sc, 3 sc in next st (at top of motif), 5 sc, 3 sc in next sc, 4 sc. (30 sc)

Rnds 3–8: Continue increasing in this way (3 sc in the center sc, on the sides, top, and bottom of piece) increasing by 8 sc in each round. (78 sc)

Fasten off.

This elegant crocheted stole pattern was inspired by the beautiful Starflower. A motif edging of flowers, the amazingstar stitch and a natural plant fiber yarn combine to reflect the beauty of the >flower. Yarn: Lenpur Linen by Rowan

WINTER

Child’s Raglan Sweater, pages 16-18

This sweater, worked mostly in double crochet, is a seamless raglan worked in the round. It’s a quick and easy crochet project, great for beginners or experts.

We regret that the finished measurements for the length of the child’s sweater were originally published in centimeters. The measurements in inches are as follows:

0–6 months  9¼”, 6–12 months  10½”, 1–2 years  12½”, 2–3 years  14”, 4–5 years  16”, 6–7 years 17½”.


Cozy Cowl, pages 14-15
Quickly crochet this elegant cowl for a welcome present this holiday season. Revel in how wonderful this simple pattern looks in different weights, from worsted weight to super bulky. Let the yarn do the work, creating a unique and thoughtful gift.

We regret that this pattern was published with an error. The pattern should read as follows:

Row 1: Dc in the 3rd ch from hook, not the 4th.

Row 4: Ch 3, *[dc 1 in ch-sp, dc 1 in dc] 3 times, [ch 1, skip 1 dc, dc 1 in dc] 3 times; rep from * across, ending with last dc in t-ch, turn.


Daisy Olivia Doll, pages 86-89

This rag doll is small enough for a child to hold while listening to bedtime stories. The doll is the perfect size to fit into a bag or pocket, making it ideal for comforting a child on long journeys.

The gauge listed for this pattern is incorrect. The correct gauge is 8 sts = 1″.

This season, the flapper styles of the ’20s are all the rage. This casual crocheted slipover top has the dropped waist so popular in this era.
