Hi! You may find it helpful to see the original pattern on Red Heart which has a comment section as well. Find it here: http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/dhurrie-inspiration-throw Thanks, Krista, Editor

There is no assembly diagram. I would like to make this so I would like to see the diagram. Thanks

Hi Trinasue, We've just updated this pattern to include the assembly diagram - our mistake, its omission was an oversight. Enjoy the pattern! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns
