HeartStrings Pattern Corrections & Clarifications
I strive to make your patterns accurate and complete. But sometimes mistakes do happen, and I humbly ask that you accept my apologies when they do. If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to contact me.
Upon discovery, errors are corrected in subsequent print runs. Therefore, a correction listed in the following will have already been incorporated in your pattern if the print series number after the dash in the Publication Number is a larger number than what is listed on your pattern.
Note: Publication editions starting with 3 thru 8 (i.e. 2008 or prior) might not appear on this list since any corrections would have long since been considered to have been distributed or updated to copies that might still be in circulation.
