Seriously?? You give this pattern 1-star because you don't know how to read a knitting pattern?? I've only been knitting for a few months but even I have read enough to understand a good portion of this, it's a typical written knitting pattern. You want visual, go sign up for some classes at Craftsy.com or find videos on YouTube.

I am new the knitting and I do not under stand what you are telling me to do. I am more visual
