Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Your needle size notation on the pattern is very misleading, it says 10 mm but the pattern calls for a 15 mm, according to red heart. I think someone confused us 15 with 15 mm. The US size for this needle would in fact be US 19.

Hi Lisa! Thank you for telling me! I'll make that adjustment right now. I appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment! Enjoy your day!
