I love this pattern, but every time I try to make it I get a big hole in the V of the two puff stitches. How can I close this up so that it looks like yours?
Laura Wilson says
are you working both puffs into the same V part of the stitch? It may be your tension…I did make a YouTube video showing how to make the headband in the post that should help.
