I know that many of you are like me…..visual learners. It just seems to make more sense to see a stitch diagram of things for all the written instructions to “come to life”. I hope the diagrams will help you. If you aren’t good at reading patterns but love diagrams….take this opportunity to learn! Read the pattern slowly then correlate it with the diagram. The more you practice at reading patterns…the better you’ll get! Have fun today crocheting!
