Hello everyone. To find this pattern, please click the green link that reads, "Click here for the free crochet pattern" and then scroll down on the page until you see it. It's in the 11th row and is called "Double crochet and shell blanket". Click on the PDF that I have highlighted in the picture. Thank you, Krista, Editor

If the image on the right is too small to see, please scroll up slightly and click on my photo in the "Images from other crafters" section.

There's no pattern. The maze of links leads to a page of granny squares. So tired of this! If you show a pattern, please post the pattern and end these rabbit trails that lead nowhere!

We apologize for the confusion. The way the designer's website is set up involves scrolling down to see this particular pattern. I did update the link to the page of patterns and added a note to describe how to find it. Please click the green link and then scroll down to the 11th row to see the pattern. Thanks, Krista, Editor

I followed the directions half a dozen times and there is no pattern. It's a pain in the butt that when I click on the link, the pattern is nowhere to be found. When I clicked on her .pdf link, all I got were the pictures and not text.

Hello, please see my comment above. I have tried to make the directions as clear as possible. If many people are still having trouble, I will deactivate the pattern. Thanks, Krista, Editor

Here's another beautiful vintage looking afghan. This is definitely in my queue. This pattern can be produced in many solid colors or in multicolors. Here's the link to the pattern http// == uble-crochet-and-shell-afghan.html

Oh my...I had to go to 3 different websites before finally getting to the actual pattern...and you can't just "click" on the link. You have to actually copy and paste the "New Website!" address because just clicking on the link to it brings you back to the same page you're on. Then, even on the last webpage I had to do a search and scroll till I found it! Ouch! Here is the link to the ACTUAL page that has the pattern - but you still have to scroll down to find it... http// == .html

There is no pattern for the afghan. Both the links are for other items.

balesmarilyn, if you click "click here for crochet pattern," it will take you to the website with another link to get to the actual pattern. Sorry for the inconvenience. - Editor for AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns

I get instructions to make a hat when I click on the links that supposed to give me instructions for the afghan...
