Way to fast...i love the pattern. need to go slower on start stitches.

AMAZING!!! I have been doing tutorials and written directions on this stitch for over a week. Ive been crocheting for over 30 years and this stitch I fell in love with but just could not get it down. There were many versions of how to do it and I was starting to avoid it. However, I came across this tutorial and what a great teacher! She simplified it and it came out beautiful! I am so excited now to use it in future projects!! I definitely recommend this tutorial and hope to see more by her. WELL DONE! )
