    Love the group project going on. Unfortunately I am a total beginner and just can’t follow the instructions.
    Good luck to others though.

  • Manda Jane

    I am definitely going to do this but, rather than follow the colour scheme, I’m going to do a wacky version using up some of my excessive collection of yarns from previous projects. We’ll see how it goes! :-)

  • N taylor
