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

I think most of the afghan patterns are quit cute but it is a down right sham that I can't get patterns from them. eg. A pattern that I wanted stated that is was single crochet for the entire pattern. I have been crocheting for years and know better than that. A single crochet does not look like that. something is definately wrong with the way the patterns come to be printed to make.
