  • ·        Sizes are named based on average sizes for age. For best results make the size which best correlates with the desired finished circumference (if known).
  • ·        To make larger sizes increase the starting chains by multiples of 11. Increase repeats by one for every multiple of 11 that you add to starting chain.

I just started with a ch 6 instead of ch 4.  This will make a hole big enough that you can slip the flower over the button, which also means you can make interchangeable flowers!
