I also would like to know what "last leg" means please.

According to a post on the message board Crochetville.com - "Usually when you crochet when you are done with a stitch on a row, you move on to the next stitch. In this case, it wants you to have the last stitch of the CL that you just made, do double-duty as the first stitch of the NEXT CL. Since the CL is made from 2 conjoined stitches, it's calling each half a 'leg'. I have seen this occasionally on doily patterns where the stitch is quite Y shaped, the 'legs' are several stitches apart. " Hope this helps!

I made this, used Lion Wool-Ease in heather rose and fisherman. Pretty quick project and looks very nice. A friend of mine liked it enough he picked out yarn for one.

what does "last leg" mean in the pattern? does anyone know. I have never heard of that before?

Great crochet patterns just what I was looking for and FREE too. Thankyou.

What a great rug for the bathroom! Has anyone tried making this yet?
