  1. These instructions are hard to understand. If followed exactly, it makes a crooked heart. The stitch count never came up to what you described

    • I wish I could see how you are working these up. I’ve made many of these in this manner without problem. Feel free to modify the pattern in a way that suits you best!

  2. So cute! So if I were making the box, how would I build up the sides? Just HDC rows around the perimeter? Did you do something different?

    • Round 4 of the pattern is for making the box. So yes, if you’re making a scrubby, you’d stop. If you’re making the box then work the HDC stitches as instructed. I hope you enjoy the pattern!
