Petite Stitches: On the back of the chart (In the Stitching Instructions, 2nd bullet point) it reads: "Petite stitches were stitched using 1 strand of floss over 2 threads of fabric". It should read: "Petite stitches were stitched using 1 strand of floss over 1 thread of fabric".

The chart indicates that you need 2 packs of Mill Hill Bead #2075 - Grenadine, when you actually need 4 packs. According to Mill Hill there are approximately 250 beads in a package (or clam shell) for that particular color. The design requires 788 beads of that color. Usually there are a few extra beads in a package, but in some cases there may not be, therefore it is suggested that you purchase 4 packs.
GP-197 Snowmen Ala Round

All backstitching in the design should be done with 1 strand over 2 with black Sullivans 45053/DMC 310/or Anchor 403.
GP-186 Ornaments Ala Round
Posting Date: 05-13-12
Comparable Anchor color listed in color chart for Sullivans 45133 should be Anchor 1062, not Anchor 133. This is a light turquoise color and represented by three dots in the shape of a triangle symbol. This symbol is found in the thin ornament on the far right of the design (purple and turquoise). Also, the centers of the four ornaments in the middle of the design (that resemble rays) should be backstiched with the same color that is used for the ornament caps and hangers: Sullivans 45242/DMC 869/or Anchor 944.

Incorrect symbol (V) appears for the vase, the bow and the small area and tulip-shaped area above the bow. The pencil thin vase should be a solid triangle and stitched in Sullivans 45432/DMC3834/or Anchor 98. That includes the thin area directly above the bow. The bow and the tulip shape below the dark green area should be a solid circle and stitched in Sullivans 45262/DMC 1029/or Anchor 915. Refer to the picture on the front of the chart, which shows the correct colors.

Comparable DMC color listed in color chart for Anchor 926 should be DMC 712, not DMC 3862. This is a very light Ecru color and is represented by a hyphen symbol.

- The overlap area on Section 4 is incorrect. All rows are present, however, treat Section 4 as a continuation from Section 2, without a three-row overlap. Otherwise, you may print the following revised and corrected Section 4.
- The stitching instructions do not indicate how to stitch the fingers on the skeleton. Use 2 strands of white over the stitch length of each finger as show on the pattern.
GP-112 Pretty Pumpkins
Posting Date: 04-28-10
DMC 606 is intentionally listed twice in the chart for what appears to be two different color names: Blaze Lt and Blaze Med. These are actually the color names for the Anchor floss line. Unfortunately, the DMC color palette did not have a color that was even remotely close to Anchor 334 Blaze Med, so use DMC 606 again for the backstitching on the middle pumpkin. However, if you really want your backstitching to stand out (like it will on the other two pumpkins), then I might suggest that you purchase just that color of Anchor 334, while stitching the remainder of the design in DMC floss.

DMC 829 was intentionally listed twice in the color chart, simply because there was not a comparable color to the Anchor color in the DMC palette. That color is used in 2 different places, in the headless horseman's jacket (symbol is an up arrow) and the reins for the horse (symbol is an "H"). If you really want to change the reins to a different brown, then I would suggest using DMC 869, for the symbol "H", instead of 829.
On 11-23-09 Kreinik announced that it would discontinue #4001 Green Tea and 4004 Earl Grey (both used in this design). These two colors work together in the design so if you are unable to get them both, then substitute them with 9194 Star Green and 5009 Mermaid. You will need 2 full packages of Mill Hill Bead #03007, and 1 full package of Mill Hill Bead #03022. However, in rare incidents, an additional package of each color had to be purchased.

Kreinik 052HL Bronze at the bottom of the color chart has an incorrect symbol. The symbol should be the numeral "1", rather than a "solid upside down triangle". The solid upside-down triangle is a symbol used in the chart, but should be associated with Anchor 1004/DMC 920 Apricot VY DK.

Comparable DMC color listed in color chart for Anchor 1070 - Jade LT should be DMC 993, not DMC 933.
GP-141 Madam Snow
Correction Date: 04-16-08
Kreinik #4 Very Fine Braid 051HL - Sapphire Hi Lustre should be used to backstitch the Algerian Diamonds around the boots at the bottom of Madam snow, not 002 - Gold. Also, the bead colors for symbol "3" and "4" were inadvertently switched. Symbol "3" should be stitched with Mill Hill Bead 02014 - Black, and symbol "4" should be stitched with Mill Hill Bead 00479 - White.
GP-132 The Nativity
Correction Date: 11-10-07
Anchor 936/DMC 632 (Fawn VY DK) has an incorrect symbol in the color chart. The symbol should be a "square with double checks", rather than a "backwards L with a dot in the middle". The symbol can be found in dark areas of the cow.

The rays around the baby Jesus' head should be stitched with 1 strand of #028 Citron Kreinik #4 Very Fine Braid, using long running stitches.

The second black header in the color chart should read “Mill Hill Beads”, not “Kreinik”. Therefore, color numbers 00145, 00479, and 02005 represent Mill Hill Beads.

Symbol in Owl's pupils should have been a “solid diamond” instead of an “open bow tie”. Therefore, pupils should be stitched in 1268 Molasses (Weeks Dye Works). Also, substitute 2225 Marigold for 2222 Cornbread. Color was discontinued in 2009.

Kreinik #4 Very Fine Braid 2122 - Curry should be used to backstitch the names on the street signs. The Kreinik is listed in the “Other Materials Needed,” but does not specifically indicate what to use it for. Comparable DMC color listed in color chart for Anchor 381 Fudge Med should be DMC 938, not DMC 939. Backstitch the flower stems and leaves with Anchor 211/DMC 3818.

Comparable DMC color listed in color chart for Anchor 243 - Grass Green Med should be DMC 988, not DMC 367.
GP-114 We Three Kings
Correction Date: 11-06-06
Comparable DMC color listed in color chart for Anchor 72 - Raspberry VY DK should be DMC 902, not DMC 3865. Additionally, DMC color 964 was intentionally listed twice in the color chart, simply because there was not a color comparable to Anchor 1092 in the DMC color palette. If you would really like to get the correct shading and not use the same color for both symbols, a good solution would be to blend 1 str of White with 1 str of DMC 964 for the symbol with the backwards "L" with a "dot" in the middle.

Number of Mill Hill Glass Treasures 12173 - Royal Blue Star needed is 11, not 10 (1 per pack). Anchor 268/DMC 937 and Anchor 273/DMC 645 listed in written Stitching Instructions, however not listed in color chart. These colors are needed for backstitching. All backstitching done with 1 strand of floss over 2 threads of fabric.

The chart does not indicate in what color to backstitch the tree in the background on the right side of the house. It should be backstitched in Anchor 403/DMC 310 Black.

The stitching instructions indicate to use 36 ct Belfast Natural Linen by Zweigart. That should by “32” ct, not 36 ct. This typo can be found in the very first line of the stitching instructions on both sides of the pattern.
