  1. Which color of yarn do we start the pattern off with, red or green??

  2. After reading through the pattern, I'm pretty sure we start with red.

  3. Yes, you start with Red. I've added that info in the pattern, thanks!

  4. You did awesome!! I followed it exactly and it looked just like yours. I see many of these in my future. Thanks for such a simple and great pattern. Would make great teacher gifts for their desk!

  5. Replies
    1. Yes, you would fasten off after row 5, you wouldn't really be able to carry the red down behind the petals.

  6. Would you consider making a video and posting to YouTube? I'm having some difficulty with the pattern, but I think this is beautiful and want to make it so badly!
