Thanks for sharing.ks

Sayjai said...

Sorry..The Donkey ear; Row 2 was not correct. It should be:

Row 1: Ch 2, 3 sc in second ch from hook, 3 sc in same ch, sl st in first st. (6)

Row 2: Ch 1, sc in next 3 sts, sc in next 3 sts, sl st in first st. (6)

The link to the PDF file went to the home page of mediafire.com. Corrected this: it now opens the page with the PDF.

Changed the location where the PDF is stored from Mediafire to Ravelry

Thank you so much for your donkey pattern. He looks so much like EYOR. The one caractor most people like he is so layed back wish I could be like him. Looking forward to starting this one while camping this summer. Thanks again Diana D

Hello, thx for the pattern.
But I`ve problems with the ears. I already started five times, and it doesn't work. Is it in rounds or rows, in rounds I get a circle half pink, half blue, and if this should be rows I don't know how to do the sl st... please help me.
Thx
Manu
