If you would like to make this pattern but you are not a sixteen year old girl (and as far as I know there there are only two teenage girls in the entire world that knit, one is my best friend, and the other is me), or my aunt (who is impressively small for an grown woman), I apologize. I’m not smart enough to make this pattern work in other sizes. I hope to be one day. Maybe you’re really smart yourself, and you know how math works. If that’s the case, would you be willing to make this pattern work in other sizes? I will send you a bouquet of button flowers. If there are any takers, let me know in the comments.
