  5. I'm from the US and noticed that your blog is from the UK. Are the crochet terms in US or UK format?

    What are your preferences for selling items made from your patterns, with your name attached as the designer?

    Thanks for a wonderful idea for my gr. grandson's room & gifts for my gr. niece & nephew?

  7. Hi, I write in US terms as they make more sense to me. So long as you credit me as the designer I don't mind what you do with your finished product. Enjoy :)

  8. These are great! I am about to start teaching fourth grade at a new school. These would be super cute in my classroom! I will try and see if I can make a sun as well as a cloud with snow. I can have a student hang the appropriate cloud for that days weather! Thanks for the pattern and the inspiration! :)

    1. Stitch up a couple of snowflakes (filet style) to hang from the cloud for the snow. :) That would be cute!

  12. I'm having trouble with the first row. If I sc in the 2nd CH from hook, then chain in the next 9, I run out of chains to crochet in. Where do I do 3 sc in last chain? I don't have a last chain left. Should I be sc in first chain from hook?

    Thanks
    Cindy

  13. Question:
    In Row 3 is there a comma missing between "sc inc," ?
    ...sc in next 9, inc, sc inc, sc (34sc)...
    Also I seem to have 36 stitches at the end of this row. Not sure how that happened. I may have to start over. :)
    Thank you for the pattern!
