    Too cute…and easy to make. Thanks

  89. Hi

    I work with embroidered dresses for girls and crochet applications
    and I sell
    I wonder if I can use The Whale
    there are copyright and can not use if I have not permission
    Thank you

  90. yes, you can but do not sell the pattern.

  91. I do not have a website. I just want to say thank you for the fabulous pattern. I am fairly new to crocheting. I taught myself by using instructions on the Internet. If it wasn’t for wonderfully generous people like you who share their talent with people like me, I would’nt be able to make lovely things for family and friends. I enjoy crocheting so much that I give away almost everything I make to anyone who wants them. If I meet someone with small children or babies, I take their name and address and send something for the child/children. I use the whale on baby washcloths that I make using super soft cotton. I put a whale or fish in one of the corners, soooo cute! Thank you again.

  92. Thanks Sandee.

  93. So cute and adorable 😀 Great stuff on your blog thanks for sharing!! Keep it up!! <3 <3

  94. Thank you Jordan.

I’m embarrassed to admit that I’ve been messing with this pattern for over an hour trying to reverse the whale so that the tail is on the right side of the body and I can not figure it out. Can anyone help me? Thanks.

  99. This pattern so cute, creative and easy, I love it . I think it would be nice to give it to my sister.

    Happy every day!

  100. Thank you so much for sharing this pattern, I’ll be using it for a baby blanket!
