    Thankyou so much for this pattern. My friend jokingly told me she needed a flaming ornament for her tree. She is going to be surprised when I give it to her.

    II noticed in the comments that many had trouble printing the pattern and you had to email it to them. I’ve had this problem and love patterns that have the Print Friendly button. When the button is not available, I use a link to do it myself as I often use the enlarge text size to a larger print size for my old eyes You can print, email or download a PDF with this link. (PS – It is also great for recipes, articles, etc. that you want to save. Works on all URLs except some that have the option of using it protected.) https://www.printfriendly.com/

    Thank you for the pattern, I’ve used it in my folk art shawl, flamingos and frills. Made it in a chunky wool as a centre motif.
    I’ll credit you with the pattern.
