I cannot make sense out of the Downton Abbey Dowager Shaw pattern, it is very confusing, on row 1 it says to ch 4 6 dc into 4th ch from hook, do you go back to the beginning chain to dc into, row 2 is .confusing also

So cute

Need to understand what the cl instruction means in the Comfy Cozy Headband pattern means - please and thanks.

I printed out the comfy cozy headband pattern and cannot understand what the cl means in row 2. I only printed out the first page - is there an instruction I am missing? Please and thanks.

Hello dear Staff ? AllFreepatterns. I have been coming on this site now for a long time and never wanted to put any comment in? - BUT - I have now. Please, please - how can I download all these "100" patterns in one go? and I could look at it in my own time?? Just like you have the E.BOOKS - it would be so nice. Having each patterns individually? it could take a long time. Anyhow - I do like to look at them - some time and pick out on my downloaded patterns when I need it. If I just going to take a few now? I have lost the whole lot and can not go back to it. Please DEAR STAFF? HELP WITH THIS - PLEASE? I am very grateful for all what you are doing for US to enjoy the patterns, at our leisured time. Thank you again for your kindness. Wishing all my very best to YOU ALL.

Hi Julie, Thank you for your message. Unfortunately, unlike our eBooks, pages like this can not be downloaded. You can however, save the page to 'My Crochet Patterns' in order to review it any time. Hope this helps a bit. Happy crocheting! editors of AllFreeCrochet

When I find a pattern I like I pin it to my Pinterest board for crochet. Then it is easy to find and bring up. It doesn't solve the problem of wanting to download in bulk, but it does place the patterns you are interested in in a convenient browsing location with pictures. I am currently looking for winter scarf patterns that are not bulky and do have some patterning. So far I have not found any, but have found patterns for other things that I may try to do as a scarf. I put them all on my Pinterest board so I don't have to print or download them before making a choice.

i have same question.

Please, please - how can I download all these "100" patterns in one go? and I could look at it in my own time?? Just like you have the E.BOOKS - it would be so nice. Having each patterns individually? it could take a long time. Anyhow - I do like to look at them - some time and pick out on my downloaded patterns when I need it. If I just going to take a few now?
