  1. If using yarn you use just C hook? you have 2 needles sizes listed but I don’t see where you change sizes. Sorry I am a knitter who hasn’t crocheted for years and I want to make sure I am doing it correctly. If using floss do you recommend using it doubled?

    • Yes, if using floss I would use 2 strands. I believe the 2 hook sizes reference whether you use yarn or floss. I you use floss use smaller hook size.

  2. You are so very talented! Thank you for sharing your talents with those of us who can follow a pattern, but just don’t have what it takes to write patterns. Prayers for your son & your family.

  3. Thank you so much for sharing! I took up crochet about a year after my beloved step-son (24) was killed in a car accident, it became my peace and therapy and still brings me much joy! I crochet for his little girls (who were also in the wreck with him and their mother)!
    I have several family members and friends in various military and police jobs and I currently work in the Training Unit at DPS so work with and friends with many state Troopers! I will enjoy creating things for their children! God bless!

    • I find crocheting to be very therapeutic! Praying your family and friends all return home safe at the end of each shift!
