    I love this but I don’t knit. Do you have a crochet version?

    • knithack

      Hi Mary, Ravelry is a great resource for patterns. Etsy and Craftsy are great too.

  2. Teri

    I’d luv to make one for my grandson where could I get the pattern.teri

    • knithack

      Hi Teri, it’s not something I made but if you follow the links you might be able to find a contact for the maker who’s name is Michelle. Good luck!

    Can I make this out of worsted weight size 4 yarn instead of light worsted size 3 yarn? I only have size 4 and really want to make this. Just wanted to make sure that it wouldn’t end up different because I used the wrong size yarn. Thank you.

      Should be ok, the best thing to do is experiment. Luckily this pattern is not dependent on a perfect size.
