I have never made a granny square, and this pattern did not help me. Absolutely useless.

I changed colors when I got around to the beginning of the next round. I used one from - here's the link: Good Luck, Jeanie

to lnaimon - In order to print the pattern, you have to either highlight it, then click on the printer icon at the top of your screen, or you can highlight it and copy it, then paste it into Miscrosoft Word or any other word processing software.

I would like to print off the directions for the Dreamy crochet afghan pattern but there is nowhere on the page to print... how do I get it ?
