    Crochet patterns have always been in words.There was no such thing as “graphic” instructions years ago when crochet was so popular.All the books came worded with instructions.Some had a picture you could follow. Sometimes improvising was warranted when there were mistakes to which we had to “think”….not a bad thing :)

    Good morning all –

    I like to have the charts as well, partly because I am just now learning to use them.

    Older patterns as so much fun, because I sometimes have to really think and/or modify to make something work.

    Perhaps someone who knows how to use charts could make this pattern and create a chart for it? That would be cool.

    Happy crocheting!

  3. I’m just curious as to the approximate count or the weight, in grams, of beads needed for this project – if you know. I’d love to try it but don’t want to run out of beads in the middle of a motif. Thanks.

  4. I like graphic style instructions, not wording, not everyone knows how to follow worded instructions.

  5. there is no picture to help

  6. directions are easy to follow
