Would like to see this in childrens sizes like 4-6, 8-10, 12-14, and even the littler ones! :D I made one when I was a pre-teen for the county fair, lost the pattern. :( Sure wish I had it now!!

Needs to be shown in a darker color.

Please could we please have the option of making the picture bigger? Some of us oldsters(meaning me) have poor eyesight and need to see a bigger picture to see the details. Also when you are showing a white craft project, PLEASE put it on different color(the darker the better) background. When you put white on white the craft virtually disappears as in the above picture. Thanks!

A great beginner project. It's also a quick and easy project for an experienced crocheter who wants to make gifts.

I am having trouble reading this pattern if anyone could offer some assistance I would be very great full. I am new to crocheting but as soon as I learn to read one style of pattern I find another and generaly i spend more time and waste more yarn to help my self understand the patern than it would take to just do the prodject.
