Corrections in Simply Crochet issue 59

We have corrections for the Filet Jumper on p.52 from issue 59


The yarn weight stated should be 4ply, and not DK.

The tension should be:

Rib – 26 rows of dc to 10cm (4in)

Filet – 8.5 mesh squares to 10cm (4in) and 9 rows to 10cm (4in)

It appears that the 4.5mm hook stated is also too large to achieve the tension stated. You could try a 4mm hook, or even a 3.5mm hook. It’s very important to work a tension swatch before you start to check that your hook size is giving you the tension stated in the pattern. Particularly in this case, where the 4.5mm hook is obviously too large, please do a test swatch to find out which size of hook will give you the tension stated above.

And the first row of the sleeves section is incorrect, it should read as follows:

Row 1 (RS) Ch5 (counts as tr, ch2 throughout), *skip ch-2 sp, tr in next tr, ch2; repeat from * to end, tr in last tr, turn. [30 (32: 34) mesh squares]

There is also a correction for Pedro the Donkey on p.43. One of the brackets in the reins section is in the wrong place, it should read as following:

Row 1 (RS) Dc in second ch from hook, dc in next ch, (htr in next ch, ch3, ss into the third ch from hook) until last 2 ch, htr in next ch, dc in last ch. [36 sts]
