My Pet Peeve

I don't know about you, but I really, really, really don't like it when I try to follow a pattern someone has written and keep finding errors.

I crochet to relax, not to get stressed out!  I have been trying to make this simple dishcloth for two days now and am about ready to throw up my hands and say "ENOUGH!" 

Please, please, those of you who write patterns, please double and triple check them before you share them with others! I mean, honestly, is it wrong of me to expect a pattern to be correct?

Okay, I'm off my soapbox now.. going to give this one last try and then I give up!


I just realized that this is the second time this has happened to me from this same person's patterns, so unfortunately I am going to have to stop following her blog. I figured out the pattern for the dishcloth, glory hallelujah!


  1. Gosh, I hope it's not my dishcloth pattern.... if so, please feel free to let me know what the mistake is. I really appreciate it when someone points out my pattern goofs - the whole point of publishing the pattern is so that people can make it, after all. :)

    But congrats on figuring it out!

  2. Oh no, Mrs. Micawber, not yours at all. Yours are actually some of the best tutorials/patterns I have seen! :)

  3. I know exactly how you feel! There is a particular web site that has their own yarn brand and own patterns and I cannot tell you how many times I've done a pattern and had to tear out and rewrite the pattern or ask someone for advice. I had saught help from the website but they were very rude.

  4. I'm so sorry you had such a problem with my patterns. I kind of hurried through the modifications of the pattern, so I did make some errors, and I appreciate the feedback. You helped me change it so others could follow it better. I'm sorry for any frustrations I may have caused.


Thanks so much for leaving me a comment; I love to hear from you. I will reply directly to your comment right here on my blog.
