  2. On the second row, at the very end..I did sc,ch1,sc and then did 3sc. But then I only had two chains left. According to the directions I should have four left. Because I should skip 2sc, and then I'll have two left and skip the first sc and sc in the last stitch. Is that correct?

    1. No you are correct. Once you do the 3 sc down the peak towards the end of the row, you should have 2 stitches left. INSTEAD (I'll add that word to the pattern) of skipping your last 2 stitches, skip the next stitch and sc in the last stitch. Does that make sense? Thank you for bringing that to my attention! I will clarify the directions :)

  3. Love this! Thanks so much for the free pattern! I already made the cozy and a friend asked if I could make her boot cuffs just like it. Do you happen to know what I would multiply by to make the rows longer? I'm going to try to figure it out but I'm not very good at that.

    Thanks again!

    1. Never mind, I got it! I used a multiple of 9 (72) and added one, and that has worked perfectly. Now to see if 72 was the right number of stitches to fit her :)

  4. I love your patterns. I am not good an designing. It is hard for me to just alter things a bit. I would love to be able to use this a cup with a handle. Could you possible tell me how to go about that? Thank you.

  5. Is each row supposed to start from the same side? Do I finish off and cut string each row? Or do I turn it? I am not sure why mine is not turning out

  6. Do you have a gauge for this? I used the exact type of yarn and correct hook size, but I've gotten through the first 3 rows and it's ENORMOUS! I apparently make fat stitches! :)

  7. Is it possible for you to make a video tutorial? I was able to get the first row, but not the second! I can follow patterns most of the time but this one is giving me fits.

  8. Is there an update to this pattern? There seems to be a mistake in it and I cannot seem to have 2 stitches left at the end of row 4. I have 3 left. I have redone this pattern up to row 4 several times and have ended up in the same situation each time. I hope you can help me out here. Thanks.
