I am trying to upload 2 images of this afghan and nothing happens. What am I doing wrong? It lets me select the images but there is no Okay button or anything else for that matter.

I love this blanket but can't make out the directions. They are very confusing. I may try something that is written easier. Is there any clarification of these directions? Like everyone else I got lost at round two and there isn't an individual square by itself up close to actually see the pattern. If anyone has an idea please let me know

I haven't made this yet, but I plan to. It should turn out beautiful. Thanks for having so many great patterns. I can knit, but crochet goes so much faster; I prefer crochet.
