In the Hand Knit Christmas book that came with Simply Knitting issue 100 (December), we had an error in the pattern for the Smiley Penguin. Sorry about that! Here is the correction.

Working in the 6 x 6 row striped pattern, starting with a knit row, work in st st for 13 (13: 13: 17) rows, ending on a RS (knit) row.
Next row (WS) Knit.
Work 14(14: 12: 12) rows in st st, starting with a knit row.
Next row (RS) K1, M1, K to last st, M1, K1. [40 (42: 42: 44) sts]
Inc at each end of 0 (6: 6: 7) foll - (8th: 6th: 6th) rows, and on 3 (5: 4: 4) foll 12th (10th: 10th: 8th) rows. [50 (56: 62: 66) sts]

Unfortunately the chart for the Snow Mittens by Rhian Drinkwater in the Hand Knit Christmas book that came with Simply Knitting issue 100 was missed off. We're so sorry about that. Here it is.
