  3. hello! thanks for all the lovely patterns! i saw the video on the pink afghan scarf with shells. I wondered where you can buy the large corchet needle. In Holland it's difficult to but those supplies (also the grips i can't find!) Do you know where i can order them online? thanks!

  8. Hi Teresa,
    I absolutely love this pattern! I actually made 2 of the infant size puff stitch hats and added the ear flaps. They came out really cute. I wanted to try to make one for a toddler. Can you give me a suggestion on how I should alter the pattern? Thanks!
