Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I don't believe the chart is correct. Reading across, there are only 36 blocks, but there are 38 stitches in each row.

got the chart but I need more instruction on how to carry the yarn to create the star.

Please explain how the chart' works or is used! I like the pattern but am completely lost when it comes to Complete the chart'! Help!

I have not yet worked a chart pattern on a crochet project. Directions to "Complete chart" are not clear to me. Is the star cross-stitched onto the dark blue squares or is it crochet stitches worked into the blue?

Please post the star chart. Thanks.

Please tell me how to work the chart in this pattern.

@fcothren 5956361: Once you have clicked on the link that takes you to the pattern page, click on the "chart" link in the materials list to get the star chart. Hope this helps! -- Editor of AllFreeCrochet
