  1. Thank you for this cute pattern. It would be helpful if you said what stitches are used, for example fsc is not explained. Is that front loop, foundation or …? The pattern is a bit confusing. Hank you again for the cute pattern and for sharing your time and creativity.

    1. Thank you so much for the feedback. I will add some clarification.
