Made this pattern and it was easy. Had no problem and came out beautiful! Will make more.

This is a beautiful piece but the pattern is confusing in several places. I have finished and my granddaughter will enjoy it I am sure. I have a lot of experience crocheting and would recommend you find another pattern unless you are prepared to wing it on several occasions.

Finally got one made and as a crocheter I will say I have had EASIER instructions to understand then this one, maybe someone should rethink the cat agony to place this pattern, maybe a couple of places up, not everyone reads and interprets what they read as another,,,just saying!!

This bunting was easy to make as directed. It turned out beautifully and I was proud to offer it as a gift for my grand-niece to enjoy.

I was surprised to see this bunting pattern. I bought this pattern years ago and it makes a beautiful knit bunting.

I loved this! The only thing is that the outcome was a bit large for newborn. However, it's good for about 2 months. As stated before, the gauge is not explained correctly. Lion's customer support is prompt in answering questions. I'll definitely try again. The pattern will be modified a little, but overall it's beautiful.

I have made this pattern many times. I have split the bottom portion into two legs so that it is still easy to put on, but fits into carseat without difficulty.

Crochet pattern has incomplete instructions. Be prepared to "do the math" when it tells you to "increase X# of stitches evenly". You'll also have to figure out how to attach the various pieces as the only reference is when it says to "sew shoulder seams together". Also, the "Note" at the bottom of the crochet pattern includes knitting directions.

"Pattern Stitch" directions indicate a base row and rows 2 and 3 complete the pattern. However, when it says "work 4 rows of pattern", it does NOT mean repeating row 2 and 3 (of Pattern Stitch) 4 times. It's hard to tell from the picture but you should only end up with two stacked shells per main color row, with one row of shells for the contrast color.

The directions are a MESS!

Shell Bunting Reviewed by Cindy on 2008-10-29 *****
This pattern was incredibly demanding but well worth the effort! The outcome was beautiful and the directions for the knit version were right on. I made this for my first grand baby Ollivea who is currently 4 weeks old. Right now she can swim in it! I made a lacy bonnet to go with it out of the remnants of pink but am not patient enough to create one using the same pattern. I also used velcro button closings for the front and made little ties along the bottom. If you make this don't plan on watching tv or talking at the same time!
