  1. I am working this pattern. Mine is wanting to go sideways. Is it me or just how the pattern goes until I block it. All my stitches match up and are even

  2. I love the pattern. How can I save it? I tried scanning it, but it didn’t work. Your showing how it is done with pictures is
    the best way to learn the pattern. Thank you.

  3. Hi June, Thank you 🙂 If you have any questions please just message me! Have a Happy New Year, Rhondda

  4. Thank you for the instructions to this pattern. I had tried it before but got lost. Your instructions with the pictures look easy to follow.
    Thanks again

  5. This is so wonderfully written and pictured that even I, who has trouble following written directions can follow this. Thank you.
