I am missing something when I read this. After row 13 shows row 15 Where is row 14 please? Thanking you in advance.

When you say this comes together quickly, about how fast would you say that is? I'm not expecting miracles, just curious for an estimate on total time spent making this. Thanks!

Hi there! I checked with our resident knitting expert and she estimates 1-3 weeks! I hope that helps!

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!
