Thanks for this wonderful pattern that I am making as a shower gift for my niece. I might suggest, though, that some of the directions be expanded. I've been crocheting for 40 yrs, so I could figure out what you meant, but my 10 yr old granddaughter, who I am teaching to crochet, would be completely confused. For example, Rnd 5 ... instead of stating just "15 dc", it might be expanded to "dc in next 5 dc; 2dc in ch2 sp, dc in next dc; 2dc in ch2 sp; dc in next 5 dc". Novice crocheters like my granddaughter may find this easier to understand.
