    I love this design. Can you suggest other yarns for this pattern. Thank you.

  • I have been crocheting for almost 40 years and your pattern makes no sense to me and you have no tutorial video

    • Nicola P.

      Hi Judy! Not all of our patterns have photo tutorials or videos. Please let me know if you have a specific question regarding this pattern and I can reach out to the designer for clarification or advice. Thanks! – Nicola, Editor

    • Maybe I can help you. The pattern is well written and makea perfect sense to me. What are you having problems with understanding? Have you not crocheted elongated stitches before? I’m thinking that may be what you’re having a problem with understanding.

      You are welcome to save this pattern by copying and pasting into a word document or by printing the pattern via the printer icon on the left hand side of your screen. Hope this helps! – Nicola, Editor

    • You can also use Print Friendly. It’s a free app I have used on a Microsoft laptop and an iPad, so it works on multiple operating systems and it works beautifully. You can do some very minor editing when using it. You can also use it to create a PDF to save. I seldom print anything but if I need to I print from a saved PDF.

  • I just printed it by, clicking somewhere in the pattern itself, right-clicked, and hit print.
