  1. Thanks, this a great pattern!! What are your care instructions/recommendations for this? Will it shrink and not fit if it goes through the dryer?

    1. You’d have to follow the washing instructions for whichever yarn you choose to use. The cover will stretch over time with use. Washing and drying will shrink it a little but not enough that it won’t fit again.
