I loved taking part in A Crocheted Simplicity’s Mini-Mystery Crochet Along! If you didn’t get to join, I’d highly recommend you watch for any new MMCALs as it was so much fun!

  1. Is all of section one to be done with double strands of the first yarn? Or just the magic circle? It seems like it’d be too thick with just an h hook.

  2. I am loving this pattern! I have not crocheted in a long time and I am a self-taught crocheter so I wasn’t sure how this was going to go. Not sure if mine is going to be perfect! Or even right but it is turning out so cute! I did have a question. Does it matter in section 2 if I did the first part of it with section 1 turned around? So it was almost like I was using the front loop to crochet in instead of the back. It’s still the same loop but my center was turned around. Hope that makes sense.
