Supersize Poufs, Page 66
The pattern was missing information regarding where to get foam pillow forms. We had ours custom cut; most local upholstery stores will provide this service. Alternately, foam from a craft store, cut to the proper shape using a serrated knife and layered to desired thickness, would also work well.

Perfect Fall Sweater

The directions are really not quite clear on how to make the inverted pleat before going on to make the waist band in this issue. Can someone please post how to do the pleat>
I have tried 10 times and it does not come out correct. I have torn my work out.
the page number for the pleat is 32 in this issue of Sept/Oct 08 thanks,

cowboy booties

I just started the Cowboy Booties from this issue and have found some mistakes in the pattern. The colors are mixed up and the stitch count for the sides should be 42 stitches. Also, I'm having trouble fitting that square sole onto such a long boot piece. When I atttached it, it changed the shape of the boot and didn't look like picture, so I wasn't sure if I was doing it right.

School-Days Cardigan, page 92

Section: Right Front; sub section: Reglan Armhold Shpaing and Neck Shaping.  Before you start row five you finished row 4 with 15 sts.  Then Row 5 says: "Ch2, turn;hdc2tog;hdc in each st across to last 3 sts, hdc2tog, hadc in last st-14(15,16,17)sts."  There would only be 13(14,15,16) sts left after these intructions.  I wrote down how this pattern would end and if you continue to work the pattern as if the number stitches was just a typo, you wind up with not enough rows to finish the patter (1 row short).  I am going to fix it like this:

I am going to replace a decrease row with a straight row of stiches instead.  I'll let you know how it turns out and what I did exactly when I'm done with it.  In the meantime if anyone else has a better idea or knows what the correct way to finish this is, please post.

Thank you and God bless.


thanks Toni!

You're correct! Here's a better way to solve the problem, though:

Row 5 Ch 2, turn, hdc2tog, hdc each st across—14 (15, 16, 17) sts.

(I've updated the errata!)

Thanks! That worked much better!

Thank you Erin,
I realized when I went back to the project that all I had to do was the reverse of the other front. Good thing I had justed watched a Crochet Today episode on YouTube a few days eairlier and learned how to do the reverse. :)
