The colors are amazing. This is definitely one afghan that I will be making soon. Thank you for sharing your pattern with us.

Hi, sherriebeth7. I'm sorry to hear you are having trouble accessing the patterns. FaveCrafts is our main craft site which displays patterns and project instructions in full. Our niche sites, like AllFreeCrochet, link to the patterns elsewhere. The link oftentimes goes to the pattern designer's blog or website, but sometimes we link to patterns on FaveCrafts. If you click on the link and it brings you to FaveCrafts, the pattern in full should be there; there will not be a link that says "click here for pattern." I hope this makes sense! --Editors of AllFreeCrochet

I have noticed that almost everytime I click for the pattern on anything from FaveCrafts I have to do it twice. Meaning; once I click on the "click here for crochet pattern" and I am brought to the Fave Crafts homepage, I close the FaveCrafts page and "click here for crochet pattern" again, I am brought to the pattern. It took me a lot of frustration and bad words to figure this out, but it always work. I hope this trick helps anyone who is also frustrated. Sherrie

@ moonspinners, Here is a direct link to the placement pattern: It is a PDF file, and you will need the latest version of Adobe installed on your computer to open and view this file. I hope this helps! --Editor of AllFreeCrochet

"click here for crochet pattern" does NOT work! all I get is "web page unavailable"

I clicked for the crochet patter, and it did take me to FaveCrafts, however, I didn't see a Materials list ... the link to me to their home page ... so now what?

Would be nice if the link would actually take me to the pattern . . .

@Bttrfly85ksses 8839245, Once you click the link on this page that says "click here for crochet pattern," a new window will take you to the full pattern on FaveCrafts. From here, please click on the link in the Materials list that says "Placement Diagram," and it should download on your computer automatically. It is a PDF file, so make sure you have the latest version of Adobe installed on your computer. --Editor of AllFreeCrochet

I can't access the pattern.
