A Note About Yarn I've used Lily Sugar and Creme and Peaches and Creme on this pattern and they turn out sturdy and tight. I like this yarn best because its 100% cotton. Easy washing!

Hook Size I've tried this with an H, trust me, go get a G. It is worth it. Also, an understanding of basic stitches is required. Sc, dc, hdc, and tr.
