  • I printed this free pattern from email that I received from you. Instructions for row 2 states to see photo on page 2. There are no photos I have looked for your pattern to purchase but all i can find is this one on the blog. Where can I get the pattern with the pictures?

    Thanks

  • Hi, Is there any translation of this pattern in French, please?
    I like it very much and I’d make it with pleasure but my English is not so “technic”… If there is a way…. Thanks! and congratulations. :-)

  • Geri, Give it go! This was the very first stitch I learned when learning to crochet. Before I learned all of the very basic stitches. It’s really not difficult at all. Very beautiful and lots of fun. Uh-oh, I see this was first posted 2 years ago. Hopefully, you have mastered this stitch. :-)
