Errata

FiberDoodles by K4TT takes great care to make sure all patterns are free of typos and pattern errors. Each pattern goes through careful editing and proofreading, with several pairs of eyes checking the patterns before it is ever released for the public.

However, even with all the care that is taken, it sometimes happens that an error slips through. My testers are also designers, and it has happened that they have understood a direction or stitch without it being labeled or written correctly. Please forgive me any error you may find.

Much gratitude to the crocheter(s) who alerts me to needed corrections. If you find a problem with a pattern you have purchased or downloaded for free; and don’t see it listed here, please send me an email at fiberdoodles [at!] gmail.com so that it may be corrected for future reference.

Kindest Regards,
K4TT
