State whether you agree with “Adventurous Beginner” skill level or not. Agree

Notes – Please provide detailed feedback on your experience with this pattern, including readability of the pattern, errors encountered, etc.

I found no errors in the pattern and readability is excellent. The chart is a great addition for quick reference. Just one addition you may consider; Rnd 8 – add a blurb indicating ALL stitches include chains over chain spaces. [DONE] From personal experience, many beginners don’t regard those as stitches and I received many emails stating the pattern was incorrect.

State whether you give me permission to use your photo(s) and project notes on my blog. Absolutely!

This was a fast one! And the timing was perfect- it started snowing outside. I tried to get a picture of it on the snow (and you’re welcome to use the picture if you want to).

I used an H hook, and got gauge with that hook

I used Red Heart Super Saver yarn in colors: White, Light Blue, Blue, and Soft Navy.

It measures (from point to point) 12 inches, or 31 cm.

I agree that adventurous beginner is a perfect level for this pattern

Between 0-5, I’d give it a pattern difficulty of 1.

I was able to start and finish today.

I really like the snowflake themed hexagons you’ve been creating. Thank you so much for letting me test!

Dawn Eckel

Size: 12 inches in diameter and unblocked in picture

Yarn brand is all Redheart 4 worsted weight 100% acrylic colors from A-F white, pink, lavender, violet heather, purple and black.

Hook size H 5.0

Date is December 15.2020. 52 minutes

Pattern difficulty (0 to 5) 1

I agree agree with “Adventurous Beginner” skill level.

Notes, I would maybe add a sc in the corner making three sc between the v stitch. [CONSIDERED IT, BUT DECIDED NOT TO DO THIS, IN ORDER TO KEEP THE CORNERS LESS POINTY.]

Denise Thomas

Size – 11.5 inches

Yarn brand, including fiber type, and colorways used. Peach, oranges, burgundy. Acrylic I think (this was from a grab bag yarn bin at my craft group with no wrappers)!

Hook size used – 5mm

Date started and date completed – 15 Dec

Pattern difficulty (0 to 5) 0

State whether you agree with “Adventurous Beginner” skill level or not. Yes.

Notes – Technique/stitches: needle join (invisible join) is listed, but not used.[CORRECTED] HOWEVER: I’d use it at the end of round 7 & 8. [DECIDED NOT TO USE IT TO BETTER COORDINATE WITH SYMBOL DIAGRAM]

Corrections: Rounds 4-7 change ‘next’ to ‘same’ in first line. [CORRECTED]

Round 8: Change first sentence Work all sts, except corners, in back loop (includes chains).[CORRECTED]

Suggestions: in Note. Consider option to use Standing stitch rather than start new color with a slip stitch and chain.[DECIDED NOT TO DO THIS IN ORDER TO BETTER COORDINATE WITH SYMBOL DIAGRAM]

Renee Zinck

Size: 7.5 in./19 cm.

Yarn: Scheepjes Catona (cotton), 106/Snow White, 101/Candlelight, 403/Lemonade, 522/Primrose, 208/Yellow Gold, 411/Sweet Orange

Hook: 2.75 mm (C)

Started 12/14/2020. Finished 12/16/2020.

Pattern difficulty: 2.

“Adventurous Beginner” should work.

Notes: It was easier for me to get my head around “V st., ch 2, V st.” than it was “V-stitch corner.” I started rows 4-8 with standing stitches, rather than chains, and ended with invisible join. You may want to include that as a suggestion each time a color change is made. [DECIDED NOT TO USE THIS, IN ORDER TO BETTER COORDINATE WITH SYMBOL DIAGRAM]

Agree that rounds 4-8 should specify that 1st corner is worked in same space as color is joined, even though you may also need to change the repeat instructions. [CORRECTED]

I just now realized that the 2 chs on the chart for row 8 are, instead of an error, the number 8. Could the number be moved? [CORRECTED] I have not blocked mine, but you can see it doesn’t lay quite flat. I think that if I had done 5 edc on each side of the last round it may lay flat.  I may want to do it again using size 10 thread, but won’t do that right away.

Vickie Gray

Size: 10 in diameter.

Yarn brand, including fiber type and colorways used:

Premier Home cotton (rainbow, yellow, blue) and Red Heart Scrubby Smoothie cotton (pink and green).

Hook size used: H-8 (5.00mm).

Date started and date completed: 12-14-2020 – took around 40 mins to complete.

Pattern difficulty (0 to 5): 0

State whether you agree with “Adventurous Beginner” skill level or not: I agree.

Notes: I liked the way your pattern is laid out; it makes it very easy to read. I would suggest that since this is labeled for a beginner, you might consider adding step-by-step photos. [DONE] I don’t use diagrams (been crocheting for 40 years), but I do think it’s helpful for those who use/read them. I also like how the last page of the pattern shows all the other patterns that you’ve made that are similar and the included contact information.

Thank you so much to all my diligent and detailed testers! I couldn’t do this without you!
