What happened to the save button? I have been through a dozen patterns, no save button?

Hi mccandlessquilts, The save button is still there! It's now below the pattern text - it's a grey button with a + sign (and the word Save), located near the other social sharing buttons. Thanks! Julia, AFC editor

I really love the look of this vest. That shade of lavender is beautiful. I am making a pdf of it now so that I can make it as soon as I can decide on a color and get the yarn. Is there a picture of how the vest looks from the front? Just curious to get a quick peek at that before I make it. Also, are the sizes standard American sizes?

After I posted my comment I saw that there is a picture of the front of the vest included in the diagram assembly PDF

Crocheted in squares! Lovely Lacey cardigan with collar. Which I believe is a plus for this project.

Oh this is so beautifully feminine and classy. This is my very next "bigger" project. This could even be the bodice of dresses in a wedding party, the brides and the bridesmaids. I think it would look gorgeous worked up in antique cream. Just imagine it forming the bodices on the dresses of little girl bridesmaids?

I think it's pretty bad to make the diagram unsavable. I probably won't make the project, because the pattern won't download as a PDF, and the diagram isn't in doc format. Thanks a lot.

I was able to download it on my laptop

Did you try printing it as a PDF instead of saving it as a PDF? Just asking because I had no problem at all with making a PDF of this pattern.

love it! love it! love it! just beautiful. like to see more patterns in extra sizes--please!

Hi...this is a beautiful pattern, but I'm still new with crocheting so I'm still poor in understanding written patterns...do you have any video for this? I would really love to learn how to do this! Thanks!

This is an ideal pattern - I have a friend who likes this type of style her birthday is coming in in APRIL nowI know what to make and give to her I know she will appreciate it

Hi all- We have just updated the pattern to include a link to the assembly diagram. Please click on the link in the Materials List and it will allow you to download the diagram as a PDF. -The editors of AllFreeCrochet

Yay! I found the assembly diagrams (and also front views) at the Coats website by searching for the pattern on Ravelry. Here is the link: http://www.coatsandclark.com/Crafts/Crochet/Projects/Accessories/LC2536+Lovely+Lace+Vest.htm Now to try my first advanced project!

I don't find any assembly diagrams! Help, please! thanks
