  1. Well done! I didn’t think the original colours sounded too nice, but actually I really like them, I want one for myself! Did your version come out child sized?

    • Thank you. Yes, it’s child-size; maybe a 5 or 6 year old. I used DMC Perle No. 8 with a #8 hook; it took 7 balls of blue and part of 1 ball of red and just over 1, maybe 1 1/2 of green. I wouldn’t normally combine these colors but it’s certainly colorful. To make an adult size sm-med, probably follow the same pattern but use sport wt yarn & G-hook.

      I’ll add the chart or send it to you. It’s easier to follow than a written filet crochet pattern.
