Hi, I have been crocheting for almost a year and I don't understand your pattern. I love the afghan and would very much like to make it. Please help me:( in rows 7-8 it says work evenly in sc. does that mean do a single crochet in every st and then turn and do it again? thanks, Cindy

I made this one using black, white, and white fur. It turned out very beautiful. The pattern was easy to follow but make sure you mark which one is front and top, otherwise you might confuse them like I did at one point with assembling it together. I would make it again. Play with your colors and you will find what you like.

Why are rows 1 - 6 not worked in seed stitch, and it's also not worked at the end of the strip.
