  1. Can you please tell me how many grams of yarn is needed and the weight?

    1. I used Lions Brand Hometown USA which is 142g but used less than half of that for the green and light green. This is a size 6 Super Bulky Yarn. Hope I answered your questions. Please let me know if you have anymore.

  2. Can you help me with this one please:

    Row 19: D every other peg tossing the bottom loop over. (12 pegs)

    Do I e-wrap every other peg and then toss the bottom loop over or am I moving a loop from like example from peg 1 to peg 2 and then moving the bottom loop over?

    1. I would appreciate clarification on this as well! :)

  3. I will try it.. i'll let you know. thank you!

  4. HI Scarlet! My daughter wants a turtle. How big will this be? Any simply trick to make it bigger -- not huge, maybe 8 or 10 inches long.
