I love all your 'ringy' ornaments! I have to admit, tho, when I saw this one, I saw a face in the ring... I may have to try this and make my grandsons into snowmen! LOL! (or maybe Rudolph!)
Thank you for the lovely patterns!

I could only find 1.5 inch (28.5 mm) ring. How many SC should I start with.
