Updates for Simply Crochet issue 38

Simply Crochet issue 38

We’re sorry, there’s an update in the amount of yarn needed for the Festive Wreath in issue 38 – it should be three balls of the red Cranberry yarn, as you use this to cover the wreath as well as make some of the flowers. Only 1 ball each is needed of Fawn and Grey.
