Hey there! This pattern is absolutely amazing and I LOVE it! l (: I was just wondering if you give permissions to people looking to sell the finished product of this pattern?

Thanks ! Jess.

Hi: I'm sorry i'm new in this kind of pattern but I don't know about abbreviations, can you tell me what does mean CC?

Joy Mills said...

Hi, Nora. My best guess is that CC stands for center color.

Joy Mills said...

Oh, nevermind. CC stands for contrasting color! If you look where the materials are listed, it says so.

Danielle Gonzales said...

Hi. So when you say in the dc do you mean at the top or actually in the stitch itself?
