Dear Drenna, yes, the pattern is made with using two strands held together. Happy Crafting!

Hallo zou graag de aantal lossen voor te beginnen willen voor kids vanaf 5 jaar Groetjes

DROPS Design 19.11.2015 kl. 15:43:

Hoi Tamara. Het model gaat tot 2/4 jaar en wij kunnen geen individuele aanpassingen maken op de patronen. Je kan zelf proberen het model groter te maken met hulp van de stekenverhouding.

Luzia 11.03.2015 - 14:02:

The BabyDROPS 16-11 pattern that there is something wrong with the pattern. There is a problem with this pattern, between round 3/4. You say to increase a Dc on the final of round 3 and to start round 4 on the second chain from hook. And that is impossible, because if you do that you do not have 11 dc but end with 10 dc. So anyone who is doing this pattern should ignore this second chain from hook and start on the first one! I hope i helped anyone who is willing to do this pattern.

DROPS Design 11.03.2015 kl. 15:06:

Dear Luzia, in this pattern, you increase 1 dc by working 2 ch at the end of row, so at the end of row 3, work 2 ch, turn and start row 4 with 1 dc in 2nd ch from hook, 1 dc in each dc = 11 dc at the end of row 4. See also "Increasing tip" at the beg of the pattern. Happy crocheting!
