Thank you ! Aa a beginner knitter, this might be a little beyond my scope of learning. I am not sure about circular needles, but have taught myself ( thru the help of YouTube Videos etc.) the basic stitches etc. Perhaps I will come back to this pattern in a few months for knitting caps next winter..This is such a pretty cap !
