I want to make the stained glass afghan.... the pattern says to follow the chart.... where is the chart? is it the little thing at the bottom under 'weaving in ends'? If so, it is so small i cant see a thing, and i cant seem to enlarge it either. Is there another chart somewhere?

Hi! Yes, it is the chart at the bottom. I have increased the size but you can also click on it to see the original Red Heart pattern with larger chart. Thanks, Krista, Editor

Hi Jstewart, The instructions for this afghan are shown right on the page. See the screenshot attached - they begin at the circled word "Afghan" and continue on past it. I hope that helps! :) Julia, editor of AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns

Four-star rating for the color and shape. Some people probably like this Stained Glass Afghan but it does not appeal to me so much. I was initially excited when I saw the word stained glass. I was imagining multicolors just like the one you see in church windows. Thanks for the free pattern which is right on the same page. It's very well-presented complete with a diagram.
