  1. do you have any really easy flower patterns

  2. I love all your patterns and thank you for this royal highness hat-- I m confused about the decrease for the crown-- you mention knit 2 together than k2 around-- what does knit 2 around mean?? also when do you switched to dpn and what size dpn do we use-- thanking you in advance for responding

  3. what does k2 around mean in the decrease for the crown-- you wrote k2 together , k2 around?? I am making the purple royal highness hat-- thank you

    1. I hope you were able to figure out the decrease for this pattern. When I made it for myself I interpreted it to mean that we knit 2 together, then knit 2, and repeated those steps for the entire round. IT seem to work fine that way.

  4. I'll be knitting this for "Give Kids the World" in red with flowers crocheted with the 4ply yarn & eyelash yarn.

  5. What does this mean "PM" and join...
