oops!

Good news: I have the bag and handles, the head, the arms, the pants, and the whole jacket done.

Bad news: I spilled a drink on the magazine and was unable to save the pages with the pattern. :0( HELP!

Oh dear! Please send an email

Oh dear! Please send an email to letters@crochettoday.com and we'll figure something out.

jacket

I'm also having issues with the jacket. The directions indicate a decrease in each row for 22 rows but the initial row is only six wide. Is it supposed to be one straight piece?

For Rows 2-24 of the Jacket,

For Rows 2-24 of the Jacket, the designer's original pattern says:
Ch 1, sk 1, sc across.

I believe that means to work (sc, ch 1, skip 1) all the way across the row. (No decrease). So your stitch count should remain the same for the entire piece.

We'll post a Correction ASAP, thanks for calling this to our attention!
