For the Mandala flower, here is a step-by-step photo gallery. To do this you start at step 1 with 7 strings attached and 6 with Einhängeschlingen on 7 folded thread. Other threads are then inserted by most of us with an ordinary shoelace knot. Overall, you need 98 double threads for the flower in the tutorial! However, it is important that there are 7 at the beginning and at least 4 are inserted at every step.
Free Hello Kitty hat pattern! I would change up a few things: - make the ears more triangular - single crochet the whiskers (either directly into the hat or sewn on after) instead of using a single strand of yarn - For the nose, maybe chain a few inches and stitch it around a couple of the hdc posts twice for a less circular nose.
