      yes, you may translate any of my free patterns and I appreciate you give me a credit as a designer
      thank you for asking

  7. Hi, thanks for the lovely pattern. One question: how do you make the tits of the udder and the hanging part of the bell?

    • Uljana says:

      thank you
      teats: ch3, ss in second ch from hook, ss in next; fasten off; repeat 3 more times
      bell(hanging part): after finishing the bell, I bring a tail through the top/the centre of the bell inside and make a couple of knots at the desired lenght (sometimes I use PVA glue to hold the thread in place)

  8. Helen says:

    So cute!
    Where do I see how to add the tests to the udders please? I can’t find it in the pattern.

    • Uljana says:

      oh, I missed that part…
      ch3, ss in second chain from hook and ss in next chain; fasten off and repeat 3 more times

  9. Helen says:

    Oops I meant teats not tests.
