a simple correction

2014 Holiday Crafts issue

A big 'thank you' to the person that brought to my attention the errors in the Better Homes & Gardens Holiday Crafts roly-poly snowman pattern. I am grateful that they are minor, but nonetheless, here are the simple corrections:
  • Small red jingle bell for the stocking cap’s pompom (it was omitted from the materials list)
  • White roving (on the materials list, but not needed)
  • In the abbreviations section, ‘inc 1’ was omitted. This increase method is knitting into the front and then into the back of the same stitch, increasing one.
  • Stocking cap: round 19 should read *k2, k2tog*

I never got to proof the copy after I had sent it to the magazine, but mistakes happen. Sorry for any inconvenience. 

Happy knitting!


  1. Now I will go out and buy a copy!!! Can't wait to see your pattern featured.

  2. Thanks, Pam. I am pretty pleased. He turned out pretty cute, all and all.
