As they say “We’re all human, and we all make mistakes.” I’m not sure why human=mistakes. Don’t dogs ever make mistakes? You’d think so. Anyway, despite careful pattern-writing on my part and hopefully careful editing on the part of others, mistakes do make it into patterns.The following corrections are for the mistakes I know about.

If you find one not listed here, please email me and let me know about it, so I can do everything I can to fix the problem! You can find errata for books published by Storey Publishing by searching here. The errors listed below are for the first printing of the books. In many cases, these errors have been corrected in subsequent printings, so depending on when you bought your book, the error may not be there at all.

 

Beyond the Square Crochet Motifs

This isn’t exactly an errata, but an eagle-eyed reader noticed that there is a hexagonal motif on the cover that isn’t in the instructions. I’ve dubbed it my “Mystery Motif”. Here are the instructions:

“…slip st to first ch of first picot, tr, 2 dc] in next ch-5 sp, dc in next dc…”
