  1. did you work in a round or did you seam it together once you were done with the width you wanted?

  2. I did not work in the round and seamed it together, like you said. Working it in the round would be even faster!

  3. Hi, I’m trying your pattern right now, and I like how easy it seems. Unfortunately I didn’t measure it correctly and had to frog it after my third row. but I’m trying again. I also realized that this was not worked in rounds so I’m trying it that way now. Also, I am a beginner so I’m not sure if this is right, but the first time I worked it ( before I pulled it out) I was working the “HDC-chain1-skip a stich” in the top two strands. This time, I’m putting the HDC in the gaps left by the previous row of HDC. Kinda like granny square style. It’s going much faster this way and is very open weave. I want to thank you for this pattern. I’ve already got lots of new ideas because of it. Happy November!

  4. Easy to follow instructions. THANKS!

  5. When you are measuring your original chains to get the length you want, do you stretch the chain and measure that way? Or do you measure the chains relaxed and as they are? Hope that question makes sense! Cute patterns… I am enjoying your site!

    Thanks for your pattern, I just did one for myself I measured it on my head but it came out a bit longer so I sawed two of the circle on top each other so I will put that in the front to make it look different. Keep on doing the good work.
