  1. I am loving doing this CAL, thank you so much Breann! One quick question though, at the end of part 3 mine is still quite rippled, do you think this will even out as I go or have I done something wrong?

  2. Thank you for everything you teach us, I don’t have much experience crocheting, and on top of that I suffer from dyslexia and it’s hard for me to follow and understand any pattern; so thank you for the videos which help me a lot. More often I donate everything I make. Thanks again.
