  2. Yes, I painted the back of the crochet motif with a watered down glue to help it keep it's shape (1/2 water, 1/2 glue). Be sure to pin it down so it dries flat!

  3. What kind of glue did you use? Was it like an Elmer's white glue.

    1. Elmer's glue would work. Be sure to water it down a bit so that the threads absorb it better. I use either Mod Podge or Tacky Glue (depending on what I have in stock at the moment)

  4. Thank you for the pattern! Enjoyed making myself a couple in different colours, and will make some for girlfriends as little gifts ;)
    I corrected the pattern in round 2, in stead of ch1 after dc2tog, I did ch3 to follow the rest of the pattern.
