If you downloaded the Dr Mae Jemison crochet pattern, then you’ll want to download the new, corrected version before you get started!
The new pattern fixes a problem with Jemison’s neck, which as previously written turned out to be a little bit floppy. Unfortunately, this didn’t get picked up in testing, and I had thought that the reason my own test version was a bit floppy was just that I’m not an expert crocheter. But when I was designing Dr Eugenie Clark I made her neck quite a bit thicker, 18 stitches instead of 7, and that made it much more robust.
The differences in the pattern are the last two rounds of the head, and rounds 6 to 20 of the body (and both collar options).
