  1. Hello, thank you for this fun pattern! The edge around the face is just beautiful and was wondering how you are turning each row. Do you ch 1, turn or turn, ch 1 or no chain?

    1. Hi Ziaria, thanks for asking!
      Don’t turn each row, just cut the yarn and join again into the first stitch of the previous row to make the next row, ch 1 to start every row.
      Ask me if you still have any questions 🙂

  2. Thank you so much! I found your video on YouTube and it showed me what to do. Apparently, I am more of a visual learner and I cannot thank you enough for providing both the written and visual pattern. Your patterns are wonderful!!!
