I'm always trying to design crochet patterns that don't make me think of toilet roll holders from the seventies. I think this one does the trick! I originally designed it for a friend who likes pretty, retro patterns. It's happy and bright and great for a boy or a girl. Plus, you can make it up in less time than it takes to change the toilet roll! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY chain, single crochet, double crochet GAUGE 18 stitch/4 inches in pattern stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 30X38 inces SUGGESTED YARN 900 yards of DK weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Any COLORWAY Choose your own!
