Knitted up lovely. Pattern instructions were easy to follow
It came out really cute, although I did have a bit of a problem with the clarity of 1 or 2 of the instructions. But I made it work and I like it very much.
I haven't started making it yet but I'm delighted with the quality of the yarn and the pattern is easy to follow. I'm looking forward to starting it. Would recommend to anyone
Easier and quicker than the caterpillar if time is at a premium. cc
