  1. A friend made these and they are wonderful. Couldn't wait to get the pattern to make a set also!

  2. Hi! I'm wondering if the stitches should be slipped knit or purlwise? Thanks for any help you can give me.

    1. Hello, I personally slip the stitches knit wise, but for this pattern you could go either way. Hope that helps :)

  3. Hi, my knitting lingo is a bit rusty. What is KFB? Also if I knit at a medium pace how long do you think these will take, trying to get them done for Christmas.

    Thanks and Merry Christmas

  4. Can this pattern be used with straight needles? How can you adjust this pattern for straight needles? I can not knit using straight needles.
