I also do not understand the pattern at square shaping. Please help. Thank You

gorgeous. You could do a mixture of butterflies and flowers to add to a plain blanket. Make a great gift for a baby

Me gustaria que los patrones estuvieran dibujado, ya que asi se me haria mas facil entenderlos ya que es un idioma universal. Quisiera que incluyeran a Puerto Rico en sus concursos y en los casos de compras. Aunque no se mucho ingles, me gusta mucho su pagina y mi aliado es el diccionario. Gracias y continuen adelante.

I really like this one! I believe the person you give it to or even keep it for yourself, will appreciate it more!

Brilliant
