Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I am having a really hard time with the stars. Did you carry the yarn, make bobbins? Can you please share how you followed the graph. This is so beautiful. I am excited to complete it!

@Mary M: First, click on the link for the pattern, which should open the pattern in a new window on the FaveCrafts website. Once you have opened the pattern, use the "print" button towards the top of the page. If you are still having trouble, you can try highlighting the text, right-clicking, copying, and pasting the pattern into a Word document and then printing from there. Hope this helps! -- Editor of AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns
