  2. how is 9.5″ same as 24 inch ?. am i missing something?

  3. Megan Frisco says

    Found instructions for the teen size & child size; would like instructions for this pattern in adult size.

  4. Cut out a felt flower or even double it for a 3 -d effect. Decorate with seguins, beads or whatever. Make felt green leaves and be original. This is so simple and even idiots can do it. Helen

  5. the picture does not match the pattern, for adult and teenager it is stocking stitch while the picture shows, knit one purl one

  6. nice i’m very eager to try it but you dhould consider adding more teenager things or make them easier to find i could not find anything other than this 🙁 but i like this pattern and i’m making it right now.

  7. adorable

    i luv this pattern! it is cute and simple and really fun to make. great job!=D

  10. exactly what my daughter was looking for

  11. That’s not true, telling someone what to do and telling them how to do it are two different things. But overall I think it’s pretty good, picture would be nice but not necessary.

  12. It would be helpful to have a picture. I don’t think I would use a pom pom on top. I might just leave that out.

    It’s a nice idea, but I think there should be a picture of the finished project, so readers will know what it is to look like.
