Attention: All designers &/or book publishers. If you make a mistake in the printing of a pattern, at least be human enough to share it.

Don't make it where one has to go to the lys, have them call, then download it, then have no one there who will answer questions when it STILL IS WRONG!

I have now made a pact never to buy from a certain publisher/& yarn company due to this. They do not have online corrections. They only allow lys to call, and they do not have help for when it is still wrong!

I have worked on this pattern for 2 days, have had my lys work on it, and 3 knitters who have all knitted from charts for over 20 yrs each!

IT IS WRONG!

*whew..

Thank you.. Now I'm going to write to the company, I know it won't make a dang bit of difference, but I'll feel better.

I know it seems petty.. but when one buys yarn.. and the book and then can't get help.. why stay with the company! I rarely buy the same yarn as suggested, but did buy yarn from the same company.

I've seen post after posts of corrections. If it was for brain surgery, they would make sure it was correct the first time..

Why are we being treated like this? Why can't patterns be checked and have web sites on their home pages for when an error is made.


I know what we do isn't as important as brain surgery.. but, they want repeat customers, and believe me, my lys is now seriously considering cutting back on her order of books.. if fact she did, and choose another company that does have a help line for customers etc.

OK.. I'm cooling off a bit.. still frustrated, wanted it to be a cute top for granddaughter.. and when someone messes with something for grandkids.. they best look out!

I can't wait until I am good enough to find mistakes in patterns! So far the only mistakes are the ones I am making.

Sorry about your troubles!

That does stink! You should write them. Maybe it will be your letter that makes them change their ways!
