what size hook?

Linden said...

Ok, I made one using some light worsted (3) yarn I had already. I am skinny and have small wrists and this barely fit me! I may only be able to use one buttonhole. What would you suggest if I want to make these for a friend with larger wrists or hands??

Lovely design. Thanks a million!

My 2 daughters and my daughter in law saw this pattern and they just jumped up saying "I want one, I want one, I want one!" I don't think i'll ever get one for myself if i keep asking them if they patterns that i've got in mind for making.

I'm happy for people to make items to sell from my patterns. After all, it's your yarn, time & skill that's going into making them.
