To Elrine, I have found that if you will type in the stitch you need help with into www.youtube.com you can get any instruction you need. It is video and verbal instruction and is just like having an expert right next to you. This has been most helpful to me. Good Luck!

When I saw that this pattern was for beginners, I was so excited! Then I found that it makes use of the puff stitch, and I couldn't follow the instructions at all - what a disappointment! Please tell me that you have REAL beginner patterns somewhere, so that I CAN make an afghan!
