  1. Scrubby is worked in joined rounds, with same side facing at all times. Do not turn at the end of rounds
  2. Yarn quantities are sufficient to make both ornaments.

Not RedHeart, sorry, I meant AllFreeCrochet site.

Hi lovecrochet65 5047 074, this is a great question! You can sell items made from this pattern as long as you do not sell the pattern itself. - Editors of AllFreeCrochet

Can I sell projects I make with these patterns if I give credit to Red Heart?

Last Christmas I bought a set of three vintage glass ornaments and gave them to my friend who loves all things retro and vintage. I can see me making a set of these for her next Christmas, perhaps along with a set of retro dish towels. This is the best place to find thousands of patterns in one place!

What a cute one. And once again the directions are right there, no need to down load. The pattern is easy and will make up quickly. I want to make them in different colors. green, blue and gold. They will make great gifts for my crafty friends. They appreciate the work that's goes into hand made presents.
