Pretty, but needs rewritten

This is a beautiful piece and I love how it is turning out. I chose different colors, pink isn’t my thing. However, the instructions are unclear in many places.

A very enjoyable project

Beautiful blanket with lots of variety, as almost every round is different from the last. A great way to expanded and practice your crochet stitch skills.

Lovely, But Instructions Riddled with Errors.

Fun to crochet, except for the instructions. I haven't taken time to count how many of the row instructions had errors, but there are a lot. I think the designer expects people to watch his YouTube videos for clarification, but in one of the videos he goes rogue. haha. The instructions need proofreading for accuracy, and additional notes to clarify what's happening. (Sometimes there is an unconventional stitch, or sometimes extra info about how a row meshes with the previous row so as to build on the pattern. I think LB, being a Brand, should have better quality control, or maybe I've learned my lesson about LB and R. Strong, and know what to steer clear of.

Hello - we're sorry you're having trouble with this pattern! If you'd like help with the directions please email us at support@email.lionbrand.com and we'll be happy to help.
