Has anyone seen Family Circle Easy Crochet Magazine Spring 2007?.  I love it.  I got it last night and has so many cute patterns that I want to try.  I am not too experience in crocheting, but are they as easy as they rate them?  Is any one interested in trying the boxy cardigan?  I want to try that, but using Homespun from Lionbrand since they are of the same weight, Bulky 5 and I have tons of them in purple too.

I just bought this magazine the other night. (they had it at bi-lo. I was so thrilled!)
I can't decide which project to do. I love the bobble purse and the headbands and the lacey look blanket. Smiley

I have this magazine and love it, too.  I'm currently making a swatch to try my hand at the openwork coat.  I've already ripped out one swatch that came out WAY too big! Shocked  So, I'm trying a smaller hook.

But, I found out some bad news.  I found a couple of problems in the pattern stitch directions.  So, I tried to go on the website they gave and couldn't get the page to come up at all.  Then I saw on Crochetville that Family Circle is getting rid of their whole crochet and knit division.  They won't be publishing this mag any longer. Huh   Angry  Phooey!  Anyway, I hope I don't find any more mistakes in their instructions.  Or, at least any mistakes that I can't figure out.  I finally figured out the problem in the pattern stitch.

That is a bad news  Sad.  I love the magazine. 
Openwork coat is anotherone that I want to try.  Let me know how it goes.  Would you mind posting the corrections?  I might want to try that one first.  Thank you.

i am working on the openwork coat right now.....and i kinda made a mistake....used the wrong hook and didn't realize it until i was completely done with the back piece.....the hook was the same color...anyways....there are a few mistakes, but nothing major.  i know that one of the pattern rows calls for 2 extra dc...i can't remember which....

Here's the correction you need to make to the stitch pattern for the openwork coat:  On Row 3 where it says *sk first 2 dc of 7-dc group, 2dc, dc in each . . .  Mark out the 2 dc (the ones I've put in red).  There were a couple of other things that I thought were wrong, but once I did the repeat several times, I realized that it was me being confused - not the directions.  I am having a horrible time trying to get the gauge right, however.  I am totally sick of doing the swatch thing now.  So, I think I may go back to the bigger hook, start the back, crochet tighter and measure again.  If that doesn'twork, I'll go with the advice of Lily Chin in her new book and make it smaller, then block the *bleep* out of it!  Oh, and I'm doing my coat in the soft gray sterling color.

I picked it up today. OMG, some of those things are too cute! Between this and the March Crochet! Mag, I have too much to pick from.

I'm more than halfway done with the Dressy Spring Jacket--a gift for my godmother. I'm doing it in pink/white, very soft stripey yarn that I got from WM on clearance last year (that NoBo stuff), and using silver yarn from a Yarn Ball to separate the striped bands. I'll post when it's done, if I like the way it turns out LOL

It really sucks  Sad that they are discontinuing this magazine (they already stopped the knitting version and now this).  The Spring issue is wonderful!  I love they're format, it makes everything look so exciting and fun.They just photograph everything so well.  Plus it came out so infrequently that you look forward to it so much more.
