And come hungry, ‘cause they’ll be grub to purchase for this great cause!

    Hi there,
    Your cowboy hat looks so much better than the original. I have tried several times to make but doesn’t turn out. You said you adapted the pattern, Could you please either email me your pattern or post to your website. Would so appreciate. thanks

    Just curious how big the cowboy boot applique is that you made? I found that same pattern before I did a google search to see what else was out there. I want to use WW yarn (and that LOOKS like what you used) and the pattern calls for thread. I am hoping to make it for a square for a memory blanket. But my square has to be 6×6 exactly so need to make sure the boot would even fit! Thank you! 😀

    • Hi Deanna, Yepperoni, you named that yarn right! 🙂 It was Red Heart Super Saver, worsted weight. The boot went the way of the purse to DCT, but if memory serves correctly it would be just about right for a 6×6 square. It will depend much on the size hook you use. It works up pretty quickly, so if you find the boot too big, try again with a smaller hook. And vice versa, if the boot is too small, bump the hook size up a notch. I would love to see the square and/or blanket when you have it finished! 🙂
