Thank you for watching and happy crocheting!
the pattern works great. turned out bigger then expected but really cute. will buy again!
Very simple and easy to understand! It came out soo cute :)
Very well written and easy to understand instructions. Amount of materials needed is a little ambiguous, but I was able to improvise. If you are using a bulkier yarn, I would recommend at least 500yds.
