This model, with an edging, was made by Meri Abrams using one strand of cotton 4-ply and a J hook.
Below there is another picture for a pin, with an option to view a full-sized detail photo.
Designer's Notes: Yarn quantities given should make 2-3 9
Roll part of yellow and black skeins into balls so that you are working with two strands throughout. This pattern also makes a nice mousepad. Toni
Meri Abrams' Variation: I used Lily Sugar and Cream 4-ply cotton yarn , 1 strand, and a J hook.The one thing I did, since I was not using 2 strands, was to only chain 5, instead of 8 for the chain row. My finished smiley measures about 6 inches in diameter. It worked up very fast, I would say about and hour
