      i use 365 and divide it by the number of rows and that tells me how many jingles per row

        I was told long ago that you should have 365 cones no more no less and that there should be 7 rows. My last dress I have 300 cones and I think 6 rows. LOL If I put anymore cones on there it would look crowded. I guess nowadays it's up to you how much you want and what you think looks good.

            My uncle told me that I should have 366 cones. 365 for the days in the year, and 1 for myself.
