Free Crochet Pattern from Lion Brand Yarn, formatted for input to refreshable Braille displays or Braille software
Daffodil Pencil
Lion Brand® Lion® Cotton
Pattern Number: 80314AD This cute cover will brighten up a standard pencil! While it is almost too pretty to use, the reality is that pencils get shorter as they are used and sharpened. As the pencil shortens, push the covering up; when that is no longer possible, you can move the flower to another pencil.

SKILL LEVEL:  Easy (Level 2)
SIZE: One Size
To fit standard pencil.
