I LOVE COMMENTS!

Cristina Mendoza on April 02, 2017:

Thank you for the pattern. I got stuck at round 4, i find it to be confusing because in the previous round you asked to chain 7 and in this one don't know if you skip this to go to the chain 5 or what? please can you clarify the round 4? thank you again.

Crochet really is good for the soul. Time flies and you're lost in the moment, which is really stress-busting.

Wow, I never thought I'd be able to do this, but you're right - it's really therapeutic. I just shut down all noisy equipment in the house (I have the radio on a lot) and went totally zen making one of these. (Granted, the first one took me a full hour haha!)

I am sorry about that, but I mentioned the hook number in the cover hub. Hubpages is very strict about duplicate content, that's why I have to put repetitive information in the cover hub.

visitor on March 23, 2012:

again, you should post what number hook you use please?

Moira Durano-Abesmo (author) from Sagay, Camiguin, Philippines on January 23, 2012:

Well, it ain't easy at first. But once you get the hang of it and see its therapeutic effect on your mindset, you might just get hooked for life.

Those look amazing. Both my Grandmothers did crochet. I tried I can't do it. I so wish I could.
