  20. I'm confused about Round 4. Am I taking a loop from round 1 but from the back of the flower? I understand the ch 5, but then what is the next stitch that I go through?

    That round is mostly chains making the loops? Thanks for any help!

  22. YAY!!! My search is over. Thank you so much for this pattern. I've been looking for this exact flower to attach to a button on a hat I'm making for my granddaughter. I'm making a bunch of flowers in different colors that she can change on the hat to match her outfits. I made the flowers in worsted weight yarn with a G hook and they came out perfectly. Thank you again.

  30. Thank you so much for the free pattern. It's so easy to read n follow. But can I make a suggestion...it was hard to read it with the background. Kinda made these old eyes go crossed...lol
    I think if the font was darker maybe would help or even 1 or 2 sizes bigger?? Just a suggestion. ��

    Thanks again!!

  31. LOVE this pattern! I used velvet yarn to make a messy bun hat for my granddaughter. I used the remaining yarn to make one of these flowers to add to the side of the hat with a wooden heart button for the center. Now she is not only the cutest baby in town, but the most stylish. Thanks for sharing the pattern!!
