    1. You are so welcome. I wish I had the talent to knit this. If so, I'd make for of the faces, mount them to heavy cardboard or thin MDF and use as wall art.

  2. I an so happy to find this pattern! I remember my mom making this and it was beautiful. Just seeing the pattern brings back so many memories. Thank you.
