Notes

Quick and mostly painless. This was my first project that included crocheting, and unfortunately I worked it way too tight and couldn’t get the bottom to block out correctly. Even though I got the correct gauge with the combination of yarn and needle size that I used, it ended up looking much smaller than I wanted. If I went up a size, it would’ve been way too holey and the make ones would’ve looked terrible.

In the end, I like the yarn, and I like the pattern, but I’m just okay with the combination of the two.
