    1. I am happy you like my pattern.
      I used UK terms - I should have said on the blog post - I usually do say this but it seems I forgot for this design.
      I will edit my pattern, Thank you for letting me know.
      Hope you give it a try ....... best wishes. M

  9. I love this pattern. This is the first time I have ever taken a crochet pattern written in UK terminology and converted it to US terminology. Not hard to do at all once I got it started. Love the outcome. Thanks for sharing with the rest of us.

    1. Hello Shirley- Since you have tried this pattern could you explain the following: On R3: it says 1tc, on R4: 2tc,,R5: 3tc, and so on. R8: says 14tc. What do these terms refer to? I have no idea. Thanks!

  10. I love the little rosebud cardigan pattern. I made one. Did you create it to come in larger sizes? My son and his wife just had a baby girl and I had made the little cardigan and suggested hat, but the baby is larger than the cardigan and hat.
