Hello, I've clicked on the Cute Bee crochet pattern but it just came up with the whole website, please edit so that we can have access to it, thanks...

Click on picture then pattern will come.

I would really like to try some of your cute patterns but after playing with your web site, I could not find how to get the instructions from the web site or by ordering. I wish your web site was easier to manuver

What I did to get the patterns is print them most operating systems will let you turn them into a .pdf file so you can view it on your pc if you do not have a computer. Hope this helps hun.
