While every effort is made to check the patterns several times before printing, occasionally there can be errors in knitting patterns. As knitters we know how frustrating this can be and apologise if you also experience this frustration. It is our intention to correct errata in subsequent reprints of our books, in addition to posting the corrections here.

If you cannot find the answer there then do send an email or contact us via the website with your query and we will get back to you as soon as possible with an answer.
Lillen Bottoms: The smaller sizes (0-3 and 3-6 months) will use 3 rather than 2 balls of MillaMia Naturally Soft Merino to complete. The website shopping facility has been updated to reflect this.
Sofia Polo Neck: The largest size of this pattern will require 8 or 9 balls (depending on your tension) of the Main Colour (M) rather than 7 balls. The website shopping facility has been updated to reflect the need for 8 balls.
PATTERN: Christmas Stocking Candy Cane
Please note that on the printed version of our free Christmas Stocking pattern it says that two balls of the contrast colour Scarlet are needed for the Candy Cane. In fact only one ball is needed. The online download and online shopping facility has been updated to reflect this.
Please note that all the revisions below are only in the first print edition of Bright Young Things. Subsequent print editions are corrected.
Carlota Dress: The Carlota Dress will require 2 balls of Scarlet and Lilac Blossom in size 4-5 years rather than 1 ball. The website shopping facility has been updated to reflect this.
Niklas Cardigan: This is not a pattern revision but a clarification for ease of understanding.
With the increases in the SLEEVE instructions:
"Beg with a k row, cont in st st and stripes of 4 rows M, [4 rows A, 4 rows M] 3(4:4:5) times, [4 rows B, 4 rows M] twice, then cont in stripes of 4 rows A, 4 rows M to end at the same time work increases as follows:"
the 'at the same time' applies to the entire instruction from 'Beg with a k row' and not just from '..., then cont in stripes of 4 rows A, 4 rows M to end.'
Olle Jumper: The Olle Jumper will require 2 balls of the Contrast Colour (C) in size 9-12 months rather than 1 ball. The website shopping facility has been updated to reflect this.
Oskar Jumper: The Oskar Jumper will require 3 balls of the Main Colour (M) in all sizes rather than 2 balls. The website shopping facility has been updated to reflect this.
Lotta Bolero: Penultimate line of Make Up instruction should read: Join Cast on sts of collar to cast off sts at back neck.
Rafael Jumper: In the Hints and Tips section we suggest that this jumper can also be knitted in the round. However details are not given in the first edition for when to split for the armholes. It should read as follows: "Split the work at markers between a holder and a pair of
straight knitting needles once you have worked 38(46:52:60:72)
rows in st st and stripes and continue working back and forth
instead of in the round."
PATTERN: Lilian Jacket
SLEEVES - the number of cast on stitches are as follows:
With 3.25mm (US 3)needles and M cast on 27(29:33:35:39:41) sts.
Also for the increases on the sleeve it should read:
Rep the last 4(4:4:6:6:6) rows 4(5:7:8:10:11) times more, and then the inc row again.
PATTERN: Jonas Comfy Top
When you switch to the new needles you should also switch colours. It should read:
Cut off C. Join on M.
Change to 3.25mm (US 3) needles.
PATTERN: Dalarna Cushion Pattern
Please note that on the printed version of the Dalarna cushion pattern that has no picture of the cushion on the front cover there are two errata.
The key next to Chart 2 should read:
A Forget me not (120)
B Daisy Yellow (142)
C Snow (124)
D Fuchsia (143)
Also the 30 st patt rep given under Chart 4 should include the final st on the left hand side as well.
A third errata has been discovered that impacts both print versions of the Dalarna cushion. Please ensure that the front (fairisle section) is knitted on 3.25mm (US 3) needles and the back on 3.00mm (US 2) needles as opposed to the instructions on the pattern which state to use 3mm (US 2) needles on the front fair isle section and 3.25mm (US 3) needles on the back.
Please contact us if you would like a soft copy corrected version of the pattern or a printed correction.
