I love this pattern. Super instructions, well written and easy to follow. This is actually my second go with this pattern, the first one was a gift for a coworker of Crochet Widower and she loves it, Bev then asked for one and being a sucker for her big brown eyes I put it on The List. The second time took a lot longer than the first but that has nothing to do with the pattern and all to do with my impatience to start new projects.
The shell bikini top was a “wing it” situation, but works well.
