Happy Holidays, I have just begun making the lightweight Zen Jacket. I am confused by part of row 4 under the section "for all sizes". I chained 4, I made the fan in the next V space, but I don't understand what you mean when you say "SPsc in fifth tr of next fan 2 rows below" across to next corner INC-V. If I go two rows down to the row where I have 8 fans, then go to the next corner inc-v, it won't be flat as it appears in the photo. I am a fairly decent crocheter and am trying to broaden my horizons. Any explanation would be greatly appreciated, thank you. Sincerely, Ann

great patterns

Love it. My kind of sweater! Thank you.

Looking forward to learning new stitches with these wonderful patterns. First, Hooded sweater!

I like these patterns...I am going to try making one or maybe all and give them for Christmas gifts!!!

i want to set up my printer so that i can get the crochet patterns.

Would love to make the shawl.

My favorite is a A crochet Shawl Pattern, because when the weather is just getting to be a little on the chilly side I can warp a shawl around my shoulders & get the warmth I need to take that little chill away, without getting overly hot from putting on a bulky jacket or sweater.

I wish I was good at crocheting. I'd love to have that Geisha Jacket.

I like the short multi colored jacket, I think it is a cute idea. You could make many and use as gifts for family and friends or make one of several for yourself as well. One for each outfit you need a little cover up for. A basic black , navy or even brown, mostly I like the varegated shown. Well I guess I better get started only 2 months till Christmas!

I really like all of the patterns. I think I will try the Hooded Sweater first.

I love, love, love the Little Crochet Sweater. Can't wait to make it!

Any pattern, I donate 95% of the things I make to a Cancer treatment center and also a children's hospital :)

The Cool Summer Hoodie was may favorite. It gave instructions for a wide range of sizes, which makes it easier to decide whether to make as gifts.

I think my favorite is The Ruffled Crochet Cardigan

Oh love them all! Love sweaters esp now its getting colder here. Fav is the hoodie!

I like the cool summer hoodie.

I like the ruffle cardi. It's very feminine and not chunky. I would like to recreate it in an off white/cream color. Classic.
