theyre lovely! I had a go at one myself, but I used a 2mm hook and 4ply cotton. Its about 10cm across, but lovely for my little one :)

I also edged it in gold thread. Its not as nice as yours, but for a decorative feature for a 1yo's room, it does the job.

Youre very talented!

Apak,

These are so pretty! Thanks for sharing the pattern. I don't know what the 3D version looked like, but I really like this flat version.

By the way, I clicked on your Polish craft web link and ooooohhhhhh! So many beautiful magazine crochet patterns!! I was in Polish heaven :c9 for a while (even though I don't speak Polish). :shrug

Thankfully Google authomatically translates all other-language pages for me so I could sorta kinda figure out what was going on. Except! As I clicked away on what I thought were more purty pictures :think I clicked a couple of buttons that didn't translate and I think I might have put several into a shopping cart because I saw a number under the little shopping cart icon but I wasn't sure those were mine and was too afraid to look! :eek I didn't know how to get them out of there if they were mine, and I was really afraid that if I punched any more buttons I'd end up buying $200 worth of doily patterns and Polish craft magazines (with $10,000 in postage and handling from Poland to the US)!! :help

So regretfully but very quickly I exited out :lookout for a while and hopefully their computer will cancel my "transaction". I saved their URL so I will sneak back in when I think it is safe! :elle :lol

I think in this instance it stands for picot.
The "ch4, sl st in 4th chain makes the picot.
Hope this helps. :hook
