  1. Thanks. I like the idea but cannot knit into the front and back of a stitch. I know how to in theory, but in practice I am clueless. I have tried but the stitches just turn into one again when I pull on the working yarn. Is that supposed to happen? Any ideas on what is happening?

  2. I think I’ll try this pattern. Wish me Luck!!

  3. Thanx! Pink ombre flowers on a charcoal grey hat.

  4. Just right for embellishing the baby cuddle sack I recently completed!

  5. I made a head band to match the sweater for a Teddy bear (not enough yarn for hat), needed emblishment which you provided. Looks great! Thanks. TT

  6. How cute! Can’t wait to make this one!

  7. I love these ..so easy to m ake and use them on many projects including one in each color to interchange with hats to match my coat color…..

  8. This is a great pattern. I was looking for one to fit onto a small headband. I have two granddaughters who live in St.Louis and they wanted me to make one for them. A headband should be easy to just knit….so I needed an embellishment. This will be perfect. Thanks.

  9. Thanks for a super easy pattern using worsted.So generous of you to share.

  10. Mmmmm, it’s hard to make out the picture, so I can’t tell if I want to knit one or not?!?!

  11. It’s really pretty ^_^
