  10. Thanks for this ovely pattern. I found it yesterday, and just hat to try it out. I like how the top, that looks almost wowen contrrasts with the tapering stockinettte bottom.
    I have one sligt misgiving. Please make a note, that you're going to use the yo holes in round 7 for a cord. I always knit my yo's twisted so as NOT to make holes, and had to "knit backwards" some rows. My mistake for not reading through the whole thing before starting ;)

  11. I just discovered this pattern when a friend of mine made one. I adore this! Thank you so much for putting it out here for us to knit.

  12. I made one of these while waiting. They knit up so quickly and are so pretty! I think I might surprise some of my kids with them tucked under a pillow.

  13. I've been looking for small little pouches to make up and use as advent bags for my grandson - I think this will be perfect! Thank you!
