errata

Errors and slip-ups – don’t you just hate it when they happen? I check and test all patterns thoroughly, but sometimes those little slip-ups creep in.

If you’ve been working on one of my patterns and spotted a mistake, email me at support [at] irenestrange.co.uk .

Crochet Collection Cover Noodle The Elephant is the first pattern I made with Granny Square technique mixed in with amigurumi. This summer, he makes an appearance in The Crochet Collection, published by All Crafts Media.

Unfortunately, there wasn’t room to include all the drawings that go with Noodle (I do like to write rather wordy patterns, don’t I?..)  so if you find yourself a bit stuck when it comes to making the legs and trunk, drop me an email and I’ll send the missing diagrams to you!

You can contact me on support [at] irenestrange.co.uk, and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

Happy crafting!

Roosting Birds Pattern

Roosting Bird – Free Pattern

The long tail feather is missing 2 stitches in the written instruction, the chart is correct. The words should read:

 

  • Rnd 1: Chain 11
  • Rnd 2:Start 3rd stitch from hook, 2sc, 3 hdc, 3 dc, 5dc in last stitch, go around the other side of chain with 3dc, 2hdc, 2sc, close the thread, leave a longish tail.

(The first 2sc weren’t there!)

Inside Crochet Issue 12 Handy Helpers

In the instructions for Stripy Hat, in Rnd 12-15 the numbers in brackets got muddled up and make no sense whatsoever! The stitch count is right though!
 They should read, in UK stitch terms:

  • Rnd 12: Change to C1, (2dc in first st, 1dc in ea next 10 st) 2 times – 24sts.
  • Rnd 13: Change to MC, (2dc in first st, 1dc in ea next 11 st) 2 times – 26sts.
  • Rnd 14: Change to C1, (2dc in first st, 1dc in ea next 12 st) 2 times – 28sts.
  • Rnd 15: Change to MC, (2dc in first st, 1dc in ea next 13 st) 2 times – 30sts.

Happy Crocheting!
