  1. Have you ever thought of seaming up the sides to make sleeves and more of a cardigan. It looks like it would work from looking at the pictures. Thanks for the pattern.

  2. This is really one of my favorite crochet patterns of the year! The pattern design is beautiful and the piece itself is so unique. I just love this design.

    1. I like to crochet around the chain, not through it, I think it looks cleaner. But you can work the stitch however you please 😊

  3. What a beautiful pattern. I’ve just started making it and the instructions are clear and well written. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I’m having difficulty with Row 4, I have an extra bobble from Row 2 that doesn’t match up with anything. Each row has 20 bobbles. I’m very confused. Rows 1 2 and 3 are counted correctly, but I have six extra stitches at the end of Row 3 when I am supposed to hdc3 HDC two together in last two at the end of Row 4.

    1. As per the pattern you are doing a hdc2tog at the beginning and end of each row. You should be going down by 2 stitches for you total on every row.

  5. Loving the pattern so far, but row 14 is confusing me, particularly between the asterisks. Is that hdc around the chain space, like in row 13 and 15?

    1. I place my stitches around the chain space not in the stitch, I believe it looks cleaner that way. You can work the chain space however you feel comfortable! 🙂
