I'm stuck on row 9. Ive tried 3 times with the same result of it not working. Can you send the fix to thanx!

I am confused where it say the entire afghan i worked holding two strands of yarn together do I just use two skeins at the same time? If you could sent me the updated pattern that would be great

Hi timtammy, We believe it means using two skeins at the same time. I might also suggest that you try posting your question to our sites Facebook page. It is monitored by the editor and is a great resource for helpful tips and suggestions from our Facebook friends; perhaps they can offer some guidance. If you have any other questions, please let us know!

Love this pattern but it will not take me to the website. Any suggestions?

Send an email to the address below and I will email you a copy of the pattern.

Is this pattern very difficult. I have been crocheting for years; but sometimes I get intimidated. I don't want to start and then get 'stuck' when it gets to the lace part. If anyone has any suggestions, I would be very grateful. Thank you. L

I also need the Victorian Lace Pattern Afghan. Thank you.

Can't send it to you without an email address.

I tried pulling up the pattern and I'm having the same problem as everyone else seems to be having. I tried your website and it couldn't be found. I love this pattern. Could you please e-mail the pattern to me? Thank you.

Sent it to you.

I would like this pattern but I am also having trouble accessing the site. The web page is not available? Help me too!

I downloaded this pattern the last time it was featured in this newsletter. Email me at cat-ghans @ and I will send you the pattern. Also some people were experiencing problems with the instructions for rows 9 10. I believe I have worked out a solution for those as well.

When I click on "click here for crochet afghan pattern" the web page is not available. Help! Need to get started, have deadline!

Email me at cat-ghans @ sbcglobal. net so I can send you a copy.

Can this be worked using only one strand?

I don't see why it couldn't. I have a similar pattern using 1 strand and double crochet stitches instead of 2 strands and treble crochet. It's called Fisherman Ripple Afghan. It came in kit form from Herrschners back in the 70s or 80s. It uses the same v-stitch for the lace part. You can email me at

I think this is a beautiful afghan. I'm making mine with alternating colors, Victorian Rose for the more solid portions with pure white for the lacy insets. I'm hoping it will look stunning in our rose, blue and white living room.

how can I get the patteren ? can't find where to print this

Up above on the page where it says "click here for crochet afghan pattern", when you click you will be taken to this site: On that page you will have to go to your toolbar at the top of your browser and click on "File" and then select "print" from the drop down menu. I just went in and looked at it using "Print preview" from the "file" drop down menu and it prints out on 3 pages. If you can't get it to work for you, email me at and I will do it for you.

Char55, I too am having problems with rows 9 and 10. Any help you could give would be most appreciated!!

contact me at and I'll see if I can simplify the instructions for those two rows for you.

I am having difficculty getting this pattern off to a good start. The ripple effect seems to be off. I have ripped these first two rows out three times. It doesn't look right. I am not a bigginer but I guess I'm not understanding something. Please help me.

This pattern calls for you to do a decrease stitch in the first two chains and the last two chains of the row. It might be easier to do it the way I have seen in a similar pattern. Try this: Row1: sc in 2 ch from hook, sk 1 ch, sc in next 9 chs, *3 sc in next ch, 1 sc in ea of next 10 chs, sk 2 chs, 1 sc in ea of next 10 chs*. work *-* across row to last point (3sc in 1 ch), then work 9 sc, sk 1 ch, sc in last ch. By skipping the 2nd chain at the beginning of the row and the next to last chain at the end of the row, you make a "decrease st"; the same as you do by skipping 2 chains between points...that way your rows don't increase in size as you work them. In row 2 you will skip the 2nd sc in the beginning and the next to last sc at the end to make the decrease. Hope this helps.

Sorry, after looking again at the pattern, the decrease doesn't come until the second row...please work Row 1 as called for in the pattern and work Row 2 by skipping the 2nd sc at the beginning of the row and skipping the next to last sc at the end of the row....sorry for the confusion!

I have this pattern under a different name from the 1970s...It was a Herrschners' pattern (#5306) called "Fisherman Ripple Afghan". It was sold in a kit.

I have made this afghan, but the pattern was definitely a Leisure Arts pattern. Hmmmm wonder if they know it was stolen.

I'm trying to make this afghan and got stuck on row 9 & 10. The directions are very confusing. I'd appreciate if someone could assist me so I can finish this. Thanks!

To cqql If you are still having problems, let me know and I'll see if I can help.
