Hello, I just loved this Pot Holder, it is so delicate and beautiful, but I've been trying all day long and I don't pass from round 3, and I'm not even sure I'm correct, I think I am but I've been reading and reading back and forth and I can't find the right way to crochet the round 4th. Maybe my problem is I'm in oxygen 24/5 and I have very bad memory problems and I need to be really calm and focus and after reading 5-6 times that I can do it but not with this 4th round, I don't want to give up, tomorrow I have a test at the hospital is a whole day thing and I don't think I'm going to be able to work in my project, but if any ideas could your please help me? I have an encyclopedia in crochet and even that I can't pass round 3rd. Thank you so much. Beautiful cat

absolutely beautiful. I have my grandmothers felt hot pads and have been looking for patterns to make to cover them. This should do nicely. Thank you!!

Hi movice13 5202145 - After you click where it says "Click here for crochet pattern," a new window will open up. Scroll down to where it says "You can download the pdf pattern here." Click on that link and a PDF of the pattern will open. Please make sure that you have the most updated version of Adobe installed on your computer. Hope this helps! -The editors of AllFreeCrochet
