  12. Shalom Marianna, I too, want to thank you for this pattern, and all of your free beautiful patterns. I am 74 and on a fixed income, so it is hard for me to buy the amount of patterns I need, as I do a lot of baby knitting. I find your patterns easy to follow, although I am an experienced knitter, I would think that should be easy for beginners also, as long as they stick to the patterns that are specifically for them and not try the intermediate or experienced, until they are more sure of themselves.
