  1. The instructions seem to leave out pertinent information!
    Starting at the point where we are told to attach another thread shade.


    I’m ready to toss this into the “No!”pile.

    Please fix this pattern .
    I’m sure lots of us would appreciate it.

  2. What does it mean when you say knit into the back of the stitch and what worsted mean? Please

  3. Carole Wheeler says

    Some of the instructions missing, because the 2 ends needed to be sewn up before the strands wrapped round to make petals. Personally. it took a lot of work but the end result was not that great. I don’t like the look of the strands wrapped around it.

  4. The flower sounded tons more complicated then the beanie! Directions were quite lengthy for flower!
