Thanks for that free patern. I made this lovely baby shoes. Thanks again!
your bootie instructions are so much easier to read than most of the others on the web. And cuter too?
Thank you 🙂
Hello. Thank you so much for offering us this great pattern. I’m from Romania and I’m a beginner in crocheting. I want to do this pattern for my six and a half year old dauther but I don’t know how I can modify it for her size. Can you help me with that?
Thank you so much and keep on giving us worderfull moments when crocheting your patterns.
I am sorry for my late answer. 🙁
When you would like to create a size or two bigger item than is written in the pattern, just use a bigger crochet hook or thicker yarn. But if you would like to have a lot bigger item at the end than is written in the pattern you should change the pattern, add a few rounds in the pattern.
I read your lessons about yarn and the crochet hook. What a super great ideea to gather all that info in one specific lesson. Looking forward to learning about how to read crocheting charts. Since I’ve discovered crocheting, a month ago, I saw all those amazing charts but don’t know how to use it.
Thank you for you time to read our mes. and for your imagination and skills in this forgotten art.
I´ve found your site by chance and I´m enchanted with it.
I´m from Rio de Janeiro (Brasil) and I´m begginer in crochet.
I´d like to congratulate you ans ask if you have a pdf file of this wonderful (reallly wonderful!) Violet Butterfly project.
Thanks to share your heart with us.
Thank you so much for your kind words. I don’t have the Violet Butterfly pattern available as a free pdf download for now, but I hope it will be soon… 🙂
