I did have a problem downloading the patterns so I am not able to learn how to do other types of crocheting now except for lapp quilts & blankets.

I didn't have any problem downloading nor reading the patterns. I saved it in pdf on my computer and it is just fine.

Can't load neither this e-book nor How To Crochet 17 Colorful Crochet Afghans r-Afghan. Have been at it for the last 15 minutes but can't get anywhere with the uploading. Too bad

When I downloaded the ebook it is not in engish

The cover of this e-book is misleading. Where are the patterns shown on the front? If they are not in this book, why are they on the cover? I am glad I did not pay for this volume.


Wanted to personally say THANK YOU SO MUCH! for this FREE E-book! It is full of the most beautiful afghans! Looking forward to working at least 3 of them up!
