I always print my hard copy charts to order, so whenever I am made aware of something that needs to be corrected, I change the original file and the next time I print that chart, these corrections no longer apply. Always check this page carefully to make sure the corrections apply to you.
If you are one of my digital download customers, you will be emailed when/if pattern corrections occur.
COLOUR AND TEXTURE: In section 6 E the thread to use is Kreinik #4 braid - 5535. I have also improved the diagram for the Amadeus stitch. If you are having trouble with the stitch, send me an e-mail and I will send it to you.
COLOUR ME SOFTLY: I sent out the first few charts without the colour for the fabric which is Santa Fe Sage.
DEJA VU: In the stitch diagram for the sheaf stitch on page 3, stitches 13 and 15 are in the wrong place. They should both be up one thread.
FANCY THAT: On page 3, in the instructions for the wrapped back stitch, the thread you use is DMC perle cotton #5 - 747.
FOUR SQUARE: The picture on the front page needs to be rotated once clockwise so it will match the main graph and the block numbers on the second page of the instructions. Block 2 - 2. Backstitch is worked with one strand of Sparkle braid.
GOLDEN IVORY: On earlier versions of this chart, I missed the thread used for Section 1, the Norwich stitch. Use one strand of the DMC #12 perle cotton.
INSIDE THE BOX: On the main graph, at the top of section 6, there is one stitch out of place. It should end one hole over.
On the stitch diagram for section 4 on page 4 there are three stitches on the right hand side of the inside border that are going in the wrong direction. Contact me if you have trouble with this and I will e-mail the corrected diagram.
IT'S ALL ABOUT HEARTS: I forgot to list the beads for the heart-shaped ornament. You will need 88 of Mill Hill Antique beads - 3021.
JESSICA'S STORY: You will use two spools each of Kreinik #$ braid and #8 braid - 3214.
LET"S TRIM THE TREE: On the back cover page, I seriously miscounted the beads needed for all three ornaments.
- For the green ornament you need 244 Delica Beads and 57 bugles.
- The red ornament takes 175 Delica beads and 45 bugles.
- The pink ornament needs 135 Delica beads and 35 bugles.
- On graph 1, the diamond shape on the left hand side of the graph is missing many of the beads. Please use other parts of the chart to get the correct version.
LITTLE BOXES: On page 3, Section 1 step 3 the thread used should be 4010HL.
MORE RHODES TO FOLLOW: In section 4, The stitch diagram is showing 31 legs on each side of the triangle. It should be only 29 legs. Contact me and I will send you a corrected diagram.
Some of the older charts may show only one fabric thread between sections 6 and 7 and the tiny Smyrnas in section 8 at the top side of the graph. It should show two threads on all sides of the chart, although you can certainly stitch them either way.
SATIN VARIATIONS: It has been brought to my attention that the Mandalay is a little hard to find on the Treenway Silks website. Look under "Shop Threads and Ribbons" - Montano Colourway. The thread you need is the six strand floss. If it isn't readily available to you, substitute any of the over-dyed silk threads that blend nicely with the other threads you are using.
TEAL-LICIOUS: On the list of supplies, DMC Perle cotton #5 - 746 should be 747. Throughout the instructions, whenever you see 747, read perle #8 - 747. Whenever you see 746, read perle #5 747.
A few of these charts went out without section numbers on the main graph.If you happen to get one of these, please contact me for a corrected graph.
At the top of the main graph and on graph 2, the herringbone gone wrong border and the corner Rhodes squares should be moved up one fabric thread. This changes where the herringbone stitch starts and stops. Please contact me and I will send you a corrected graph. In the instructions for section 7, step 1, on page 8, it should read "count over 12 fabric threads and up 22 fabric threads" for the left hand side. For the right hand side it should read " over 10 and up 20.
