    I got computer gobbledygook when I tried to download onto my iPhone. I registered and all.

    It’s because you are downloading a .zip file. They have it compressed. You need to be able to unzip the file to get to the .pdf

    Many people are trying to download this on a mobile device (phone or tablet) and can’t open a .zip file. Is it possible for you to provide the PDF without compressing it? Thanks!

    That’s an odd format, I can email Let’s Knit, but I am not able to provide a PDF as it’s not my pattern.

    I just realized that “foll”means FOLLOWING. I don’t know why “they”left off the last 2 letters

    Thank you SO much for printing this out! I have had so many problems just trying to log into their website.

    I do have a few questions re your pattern instructions.

    – For rows 24-26 you state that you start out with a p row and then work in stockinette stitch. I do not
    understand what you mean by start out with a p row since row 23 was a knitted row.

    – For row 27, I believe yfwd is the same as the American YO (yarn over)?

    – For Row 30, I believe you end up with 9 sts remaining. I see “nine sts” mixed in with the commentary
    at the end of the pattern, and I am confirming that it is for the end of Row 30.

    Again, thank you so very much! :o)

      If row 23 is a knitted row, then row 24 is a purl row and therefore the isntructions are correct. It’s just a way of verifying that you are in the correct side, and if you have altered the pattern at all by doing more or fewer rows, that you start this section on a purl row.

      yfwd is “yarn forward”, so you bring the yarn to the front as if you’re going to purl.

      Yes, there are 9 stitches left at the end. Row 30 is the last row, so there should be 9 stiches left after row 30.

      That’s because it’s phones and tablets that are giving folks trouble, not desktops or laptops. The latter is not a “mobile” device, although it is portable.

    I will be the third to ask…what weight of yarn is used please? Needles 3.5mm are small so what yarn do I use?
    thank you

      Total guess here, but I will be using nothing bigger than fingering weight. For needles that small, you have to. Lace or fingering. If you have a bit of leftover in either or both weights, give a swatch a go and see which works best for you.

      I was confused by the pink since there is no pink in the picture. I figured the white just went to all the way to the underneath. Nope! Pink underneath!

      I might just go ahead and felt dog and cat fur into the bottom. Since that’s going to happen eventually anyway!

    Two thoughts: a knitting in the round version and a felted (fulled) version.

    I looked on etsy.com to see if anyone had made and was selling
    them. Only one person in England (I’m in the US) and
    the link didn’t work. I’d love a set of 4 also to try them out.
    They are adorable. Let me know if any are available for sale.

    I also would like to know what weight yarn, and if there is a crochet pattern

    I’m confused with the row count. You start with Row 1-2 in orange and yellow and already change to white in row 3? Shouldn’t this say to work for – I don’t know – 8 cm in orange and yellow?

      if you read the next line it says rows 3-18. continue with st st. then change to white. row 19 is where the white starts

        Thanks for clarifying, but that’s not what it says. Maybe it should be reworded to what you wrote. It’s confusing.

          I have printed the pattern and it is exactly what it says

            This is what my pattern says. Copied and pasted
            “Rows 1-2: (k1, p1) to end Work in foll two-row stripe sequence: Bright Yellow, Radiant Orange
            Rows 3-18: starting with a k row work in st st Change to Striking White
            Rows 19-20: starting with a k row work in st st”
            That makes it sound like 1 and 2 are yellow and orange and in row 3 you start with a K row in white.
            What I think it means and how it should be worded is:
            Row 1: k1, p1, work in two row stripe sequence yellow/orange, repeat for 18 rows
            Row 19: change to white, starting with a k row work in st st
            etc ….
            Makes me wonder how i need to read the rest of the pattern.
            Is yours really worded different? Can you send me the link for that one?
            Thank You

            Row 1-2 so rows one and two
            Row 3-18 so rows three to eighteen
            You have to read it properly

            It must be a cultural difficulty. That IS how I am reading it. I am not trying to be sarcastic or harping on anything. I honestly don’t understand it. I AM reading row 3 TO 18: start with a k row in white. That – to me – means in row 3 I am starting the white.
            Unless the pattern explanation is putting the “Row indicator” at the end of the description, in which case there shouldn’t be a colon after “Row 3 to 18”

      Astrid, there should probably be a return after “Rows 3-18: starting with a k row work in st st”
      I think you “Change to Striking White” after Row 18
