These Santa's Helpers Aprons are perfect for mother and daughter twinning. Mother and daughter tandem can wear these aprons on Cnristmas day as they cook and prepare food in the kitchen for family and friends who will drop by to visit and to join in the celebration. Why not? I can make these aprons for my daughter and granddaughter. Santa's helpers will surely be a hit on Christmas Day.

pattern states in special stitches that d-box is 2dc 2ch sc. yet in pattern you start off with Dc 2ch sc and it says 1st d-box made. Then you are supposed to d-box, is it 1dc or 2dc for d-box? thank you for your help. With 2dc it doesn't seem to work out right.
