@pocketcosmic: thank you so much, I started on my own kind of eyeballing it, not finished yet as I’m not hyper fixated as much on Kandi anymore but I’ll let you know how it goes and what rows I used! - algae

A standard pony bead is about 6mm tall, 9mm wide. A Perler bead is 5mm tall 5mm wide. The basic mask is 21 columns wide and 15 rows tall. So i would start with (6×21)/5=~25 rows wide and (9*15)/5=27 rows tall. I'm sure there will still be some experimenting, especially when it comes to the triangles. But I'm curious to see how it goes!
