Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

loved it and so did everyone else! going to make another for a friend...thank you! Cindy

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

What is MB? I have been crocheting for over 40 years and have never seen this acronym Thank you!

MB (yo, pull up a loop, 4 times, yo and draw through all loops on hook, Bubble made)

I'm guessing it means MakeBubble (stitch) MB (yo, pull up a loop, 4 times, yo and draw through all loops on hook, Bubble made)

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.

Are there any corrections to this pattern ? I can't get 24 stitches on first row...

@lcatalano 4431985, I'm sorry; we only have access to the pictures given to us and this photo was unfortunately a small image. We apologize for any inconvenience. --Editor of FaveCrafts

Where can I get a laregr picture of this afghan...I would like to see the stitches more clearly......thank you

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

It would be nice to have a picture which shows the pattern more clearly, like in these instructions:

Thank you both so much for your answers. Now, I really feel stupid!! I'll continue to practice and hopefully will be able to understand reading the patterns better. Will also check out the website you mentioned. Thanks again for your kindness...

misspaula, Work evenly is to say work to gauge, or keep your stitch size the same throughout the article you are crocheting. If you crochet a square, let's say a potholder, you want it to be square. You must be aware of how tight or loose your stitches are. You may be relaxed and start an item with loose stitches and as you go along you become tense and hold your thread a little tighter. You will notice your square item is now wider at the beginning and narrower at the end! Practice helps avoid this situation and frequently checking your stitch gauge against the pattern can be helpful. Try a few practice pieces and see how you do. Always keep a cloth tape measure or a ruler in your knit/crochet kit to make a quick check of the pattern gauge as you go along. I hope this helps and that you enjoy your needlecraft projects.

Good morning Work evenly- Make sure that your stitches are not to lose. What helped me was a website

I'm still kind of new at crocheting. I don't understand what "work evenly" means. Work what evenly? HELP Please...
