This Country Fields Throw is a beautiful afghan. The written directions sound easy enough, but the Surface slip st has me a little confused. By chance do you have a video showing how to do it? I close up picture of the trim would even work.. Hopefully I can find a video by searching it on the internet. Other than that I'm in.. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet throw pattern.

Hey there! Here's the URL for our video detailing surface stitches- https// -It's not specifically for the slip stitch, but it'll give you the visuals you need to apply the technique to the slip stitch. You can also find all our other videos by clicking on the "Videos" link at the top of the page. Thank you so much for your question! Let me know if I can be of further assistance. Happy Hookin'!

This lovely lapghan worked up beautifully! Everyone loves it.

People like to look at pictures of a project before they make them. Especially when they can't read patterns, like me. So I will NOT be doing this project.

Hello Sharon M, the photo for this pattern has been updated. Our apologies for the inconvenience! -Editors of AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns

Thanks for making the pattern readily available for crocheters like me. This throw is perfect for someone who loves plants, a green thumb, someone who loves the environment.
