There’s an update for the A Good Vintage granny cardigan from Simply Crochet issue 54. The starting chain numbers are correct for size 8-10, but for 12-14, 16-18 and 20-22 please see below.

Size 12-14: foundation chain of 197

Size 16-18: foundation chain of 221

Size 20-22: foundation chain of 245

Thanks to reader Cara Khalil Young for her help with this, as she’s explained the starting chains:

For 12-14, 66 groups of trebles:
(65 x 3) + 1 = 196 doubles
A foundation chain of 197

Then for 16-18, 74 groups of trebles:
(73 x 3) + 1 = 220 doubles
A foundation chain of 221

Then for 20-22, 82 groups of trebles:
(81 x 3) + 1 = 244 doubles
A foundation chain of 245

Due to unforeseen shade alterations by King Cole you may be unable to find the Silver yarn shade. So we recommend the following yarn shade substitutions for the A Good Vintage granny cardigan:

King Cole Merino Blend 4ply
Stone (904) to be replaced with Slate Blue (096)
Silver (036) to be replaced with Stone (904)
