I think i have found an error in my pattern



  • Claire Johnson

    Pattern # 1357 Baby Cardigan

    Cardigan with Shawl Collar page 1

    10th row.

  • Jean Gardiner

    Pattern 3930
    Bootees only show instructions for 4 sizes which should I use for size 18 inch

  • Tracie offley

    Pattern 5464 - there appear to be missing instructions for the sleeves. No info once you have increased to the required number of stitches. Can you please advise what to do next. Thank you ..

  • Deborah Smith

    Pattern number 10301 - Working on 'front', the 4th row of the pattern does not add up to the 164 stitches on my needle. The pattern has 2 rows of 4 which are repeated. Both 4th rows do not add up to the 164 stitches I have.

    Also when working on the back I have 'shaped the back neck'. It tells me I should have 58 stitches but I think this should be 48 (3rd from last instruction) ?

    Can you please advise me. Thank you.

    Pattern 10257 Crowd surf sweater

    I've made thirty squares and have just re-read the pattern It suggests that for the third round, you need to go round twice. This is not reflected in the pictures. Am I being thick? 



  • Tina Davies

    Pattern no 10345, states 4 balls of main colour and 3 balls of shadeC.

    however, (my tension and actual finished measurements are correct) I am left with over 2 balls of main colour and insufficient yarnC  to complete top of sleeve. Really frustrated and disappointed.

  • Liz myles

    Pattern 4244. This is a vintage pattern of my mother in law’s stash. (Deceased)
    I don’t believe she had knitted the cardigan.
    I am having problems with the first few rows on the back where I have cast on 85 stitches but by the time I have completed 2 of the pattern rows (making the holes) at row 7 I have found I have lost two stitches (83). I believe it may be because there is not a yfwd before knitting the first 2 knit tog.
    Is this correct?
    I have unpicked once to try and find ‘my error’ but I think this might be the reason.
    Can you advise please.

    Pattern 8040. 

    New knitter here.

    I am working on the button holes for a men's version 112/117 cm size.

    Pattern says to rib to last 105 sts, cast off 2 sts, (rib 17 and cast off 2 sts) 5 times, rib 2.

    I have tried various ways to get this right and I can end up with up to 12 sts left.

    If I work it out from the other direction I should start at stitch 99.

    As I said I'm new to this, am I missing something obvious?

  • Lisa Richardson

    I have knitted the 264 pattern and from 3rd row of squares it is completely wrong. I am not sure what I have done wrong, have you had any other people that have struggled and got it wrong. I have looked at again at the pattern and it seems like it doesn’t match the picture shown. Lisa

  • Jenny Lamont

    I am using Sirdar 2502 and making the jacket with the hood for the 3rd size. Upon reaching 69 sts, the next step is to work 41 (?) rows and dec 1 st at the end of next and every foll 8th row; the result is MORE sts than before (despite decreasing). Please advise.

  • Lucyrandle

    Pattern 4824
    Cast on 5 stitches
    work 3 rows inc at each end of every row
    13 stitches

    .. This adds up to 11!
    I don't know whether I need to do the extra row to make it up to 13 or to carry on with the 11? My instincts are saying do the extra row

  • Mary Carr

    Pattern no 1815.
    The instructions are appalling for the yoke. I understand your company were aware of this a couple of years ago yet I purchased the pattern in the last few weeks and it has not been amended

  • Shelley Healy

    Pattern 1452
    Snuggly baby, hearts shawl
    All ok until 7th row. I think I'm reading the instructions correctly but I finish the row with 225 stitches rather than 235. This throws out the 9th row then.

  • Helen Steinhardt

    Sirdar pattern 9129
    I've completed the back and left front, both have the garter stitch border along the bottom edge as expected. I started the right front and the garter stitch border will apparently be on the top edge. I'm confused because the left and right fronts are exactly the same on the instructions up to the increase row, so if the right front is worked from right to left how can that be correct while the ribbing will be on the shoulder edge?

  • Alison Smith

    Sirdar pattern 3284 cardigan - the buttonhole border. Instructions say cast on 7 sts but then the instructions for 1st row is S1 twice, k2 ie only 4 sts. What do I do with remaining 3 sts?
    Thank you

  • Anne-Michelle Down

    Sirddar pattern 3108, Help!..  is there an error with the booties after the ribs I now have 30sts, but row 5, it says to *knit tog next st and same st 4 rows below from back, rep from * to end, which reduces sts then row 6 it says increase into sts 7x with the count of 37sts at the end of it, but how can I gain the 7sts if Ive reduced in row 5, I'am really struggling to understand this booties pattern, I've made many other booties & mittens, but cant get past this ones row 5???

  • Lindsay Goodwin

    Pattern 3905 child's cardigans.

    I'm knitting the third size (6-12 months) and I keep being left with an extra stitch on the first row.
    Cast on 38 stitches but only 37 are included in the first row of pattern.
