  3. I am making the Beatrice cowl and it references a row 5 that isn’t shown in the instructions. The pattern stops at row 4 and then says to repeat rows 2-5. There is no row 5. Can you send me e pattern correction please.

  6. I am stuck on the feet and legs of the mice in the Cute Crocheted animals book. Please can someone help me?

  7. I am making the teddy from Cute Crocheted Animals and cant work out how to start the body after making the two legs. Can anyone help me please

    1. Imagine you are the animal. To join the legs together you attach the yarn between your legs on the left leg at the back. You work around your left leg from your bottom around to the front then you join your right leg by work across the stitches from the inside of your right leg at the front around the side of your right leg and around to the back. You will then meet your self where you started. Keep working in spirals up through the pants – your two legs will be joined.

    Dear Emma, I am crocheting Perry the Penguin, and have a question. When you change from grey to black on row 32, do you crochet into the back of the stitches? Also have you done a tutorial for slip stitching across a row, like you suggest for row 32, I am having a lot of trouble with this. Thank you, Jo-Ann

    Emma, I am trying to make your BEEPBOT booties and I don’t understand how to put the head together. Why do you need 4 sides per bootie? I found the pattern in a creature feetures book by Kristi Simpsonn. I bought the book at JoAnn fabric. Can you explain?

  10. Hi, I have just bought your book Cute Crocheted Animals .
    I have started the Teddy Bear pattern and my Teddy Bears head does not seem to be correct, it is not the same shape as the photo, it has no snout, I have follows the pattern correctly – twice . I have tried various ways to stuff the head but nothing works. I would appreciate any advice you have . Thank you

    1. Hi Emma, I notice someone has already queried this, but I can’t find a reply. I have made Nancy Bear and now working on Bernard from Cute Crocheted Animals, but the shaping for the face/nose does not give the result in the illustrations. Can I adjust? Thanks.

      Hi I am also having problems with the shape of the head. Did you ever get a reply please? have you managed to sort the problem.

  11. Hi Emma I’m trying to make Water Melon Pot Holder.
    I’m stuck on round 3 which says (2dc in, 2dc in next st) to end 40sts.

  12. I just watched your tutorial for join a s you go granny squares. My only complaint is that you could have slowed things down a bit. Even the written captions were too fast. People who watch tutorials are watching because they need to see exactly what you are doing slooooowly. Sorry for the criticism but I am a new crocheter and unsure as to what you were doing,

  13. Hi Emma, I just got your fabulous ‘Cute Crocheted Animals’ book, to make Emily the Rabbit for my niece this Easter. I am not a very experienced crocheter, but have completed the head and arms. I am struggling with the feet though, for some reason I keep ending up with too many stitches even though I’m trying to count them! Can you please give me some tips! Thank you!!

  14. Hi Emma,
    Currently making Emily but am stuck on how to attach the arms in round 27. I’ve read and reread the instructions but still do not understand it. Could you please help. Love the book and going to do Stanley next. Many thanks. Hazel

  15. Just bought cute crocheted animal book could you pleas do a tutorial on how to sew the animals together

  16. Hi! I need help! I’ve almost finished my fox from cute crocheted animals and am ready to attach the arms. However, when I follow the pattern, one arm ends up too far around his back and the other ends up too far on his front. It says to: 6dc, add the arm with the next 5dc, 11dc, add the next arm with 5dc and another 5dc. Can I just start with more dc move his arms further around his body? Just worried then that the clothes won’t fit if I don’t place them correctly not sure where I’ve gone wrong, I must have started connecting his legs in the wrong place and so now my start place for each round has been wrong

    I am making Billy Bear at the moment but unfortunately the eyes that I purchased from a company called e-crafts are impossible to fix on. Even

  35. Hi Emma, I am really enjoing Cute Crocheted Animals. However I am really struggling to figure out Row row 17, of Katy Cat’s jacket.
    No matter how I read it, I cannot turn 26 sts into 18 with this pattern. Can you please explain this line, as I cannit figure it out. It says:
    Row 17: 1ch, sl st across 4 sts, (Sl st, 1ch, 1dc) in next st, 17 dc, turn (18 sts). I have no idea where I am going wrong.

  36. Janette Osborne

    Hi, I saw a pattern of yours in the Landscape magazine for the fingerless mitts. I ordered the yarn and started but I think your written pattern is wrong, in the 3rd round it says to add yarn B and 2 tr between next 2 sts but if you look at the picture it is between each stitch and I cannot get my work to lay flat. I have tried 3 times and it just looks awful. Can you tell me if I am being dumb here. Thanks

  37. I’m stuck, I’m doing legs of Jack rabbit, round 8, I have 26sts on hook, and you say row 8 8DC, (2dctog) 3 times, 12 DC, that’s more stitches than i have, please advise, Jill

    1. I realize that your question is 6 months old. But I have the answer to your question if you haven’t found one by now. You basically crochet through the two stiches of the sandwiched arm and also through the stick behind it on the neck/body so that you are going through three layers. The five times is in reference to how many stitches you will go through on the width of the arm. It’s 5 stiches wide when sandwiched. I really wish there were more tutorials. But it seems like she’s not really doing that for the cute crocheted animals anymore.

    I don’t understand how to attach the mouse arms in ‘Cute crocheted animals. Please help

  39. Hi, I am making the teddy from your Cute Crochet Animal book. Having just made the head, the face is very flat, counting the rows from the picture in the book and from your video, it is not the same, so I’m thinking there must be some rows missing from the printed text. Please could you advise me of these missing rows please. Many thanks

    Hi Emma I love your book cute animals although I’ve been a spinner weaver and knitter for years crochet has always stumped me a bit but yes I’m making Bernard and loving it .your tutorials are great and I’m going to get the other books soon I’m hooked thank you Linda

  41. Hi Emma. I would appri6if you would do a video on how to attach the animals heads. As I don’t seem to be doing it write.
    Also I would appreciate a demo on the emilys pinafore dress. I cannot seem to get from row 4 to 5 right.. I am a beginner.

  42. Jane Williams

    Help please!!! I love your cute animals and have made both the foxes and both the rabbits for my grandchildren. I’m now trying to make the bears for my niece’s baby but the head is the wrong shape, more like a ball with no snout. I see other people have had this problem and I wonder whether there are rounds missing in the pattern where you don’t increase in every round to round 8. I’m just basing that on a comparison with the other animals in the book.

  43. Can you advise me please. I am a crochet beginner and want to make your fruity pear keyring but am having a problem with round 5. I can’t make it work to increase from 24 to 28 stitches by doing the 5dc, 2dc combination. It gives me too many stitches.

  44. Hi, I’m doing Lucy mouse and have been very confused counting stitches on the feet/legs and can’t get past row 5 without having 2 extra stitches. Do the slip stitch and chain count in the overall stitch count? I keep coming up with more stitches. When I get to round 5 I always end up with 28 instead of 26 stitches. Thank you so much.
