every time I try to get the directions for making one of these beautiful projects a darn pop-up (I have pop-ups disabled on my pc) ad shows instead of the directions. I understand these ads are what pays for project lovers like us to be able to enjoy these free patterns and I for one am very appreciative of all I have been able to create because of you, any advice to get to the pattern directy?? thank you and Bless you all......

press "control" and the pop-up will appear ONLY ONCE, hope it works for you.

I enjoy looking at the free crochet patterns and trying to decide if I might like to make something. It is so fun and oops the time is gone that it the bad part. But mostly love it.
