  1. Hi Krista,

    I love the modern look of this pattern, but am having difficulty achieving this beautiful piece and have a couple of questions.
    – Does each row end in a hdc?
    – Is there a right side and wrong side to the pattern? If each row starts with a sc and ends in a hdc, it seems both sides look the same.
    I tried to attach a photo, but was unsuccessful.

    Thank you so much in advance for your help!
    Sue

  2. Hi, just wondered if I could use actual jute twine to make these? Many thanks x

    1. Hi Leona,
      You could but I am not sure how they would wash up. 🙂 But I say go for it. 🙂
