NOTE:  The pattern for the comb/wattle is the size given in the pattern book.  However, I am not sure this is large enough.  Just may be something to "go by" and not the actual pattern.

I have proofread the pattern and it is exactly as printed in the instruction book.  However, I have not made this pattern and am not sure I could answer any questions regarding it.

HOPE YOU ENJOY YOUR PATTERN!!
