First of all on their site look on the left and scroll down to revisions and upates and type in the issue number and see if anything comes up. If not then contact them. The designer is on ravelry so maybe try and contact her directly. Mary

 

I did check for revisions but none were listed. I'm signed up on etsy, but not ravelry, but I'll have to see about that option.

Thanks so much.

Here is the ravelry page for the designer. It was also available as a freebie the month the mgazine came out so check and see if the PDF link on ravelry for the download matches the magazine instructions.

 

If you click her name you will see her user name and blog. On ravelry you can go up to my notebook, messages and in the too field put her user name and pop her a message. I have found a lot of designers are on ravelry and to be very hepfull if I contact them with a pattern problem. If there is a mistake then someone needs to notify crochet world so they can print the corrections. Mary

I'm back on track. I had filled out the inquiry form on Crochet World asking about the pattern. It said that it might take several weeks, but I just got a reply with the pattern revisions. So I'll be getting the afghan back out to work on tomorrow.

I finished the throw. It is done in Vanna's Choice taupe. Overall I was a little disappointed in the finished project. It may partly be the result of not using Caron Simply Soft yarn, but the throw puckers and the edging doesn't lay like it should. Also it is much rounder than the star shape in the pattern photos, which may be achieved by blocking it. I just can't see the practicality of having to block a throw.

If I make another one, I'll definitely use the Caron yarn the pattern calls for.
