  10. The CO I use is just a simple slip knot. I generalize it and say CO because some people use different ways to start out. Hope this helps! ♥
    (Cathie, I am also sending you an email)

  13. LoL...Carole, that is exactly why I learned to crochet! I would be looking at/for knitting patterns and kept coming across such adorable crochet patterns that I loved but couldn't make....so I had to learn!

    Heather, you are such a sweetheart! Thank you!♥

  18. I cannot get this!! Do you not close the circle first? I am not closing the circle but I have tried at least 5 different times and I just can't get this.

    ReplyDelete
  19. No honey, I'm not making a circle.
    You start by chaining 4. This counts as the first hdc and ch2 space.
    You then work in the 4th chain from the hook as if that chain (the 4th from the hook) were your circle.
    So, chain 4, then hdc in 4th chain from hook & ch 2, repeat this 4x all in that same chain.
    I'm sorry if I confused you. If need more help I will try and make a video to help you. Let me know how it goes!

  20. Oh thank you for the pattern, and how you worded it in your comment here has helped a bunch.. I found your pattern whilst searching for snowflake patterns to make for my mom, who has q snowflake fetish. She just loves 'em. I think these teeny tiny onee would look cute as earrings, too.
    ...And, I too, was having a bit of trouble with that first rnd. But i got it down pat!.. Just finished making them in a jiffy. So, Thank you! :)

    2. Oh great! I am so glad that I was able to clarify it well in the comments and that you are enjoying the pattern! :) I think they would be great as earrings too!! You could even do 2 or 3 per ear and make them dangle at staggering lengths....hmmmm....I may have to do that myself! :) I'm glad that the snowflakes made your mom smile. :) You are most welcome and thank YOU for leaving me a comment. You made my night. ♥
