Where is the rest of the pattern, head only goes to ow three. Please, if you can email me as it is so hard to find another page where to go - perhaps hilde.novak@sbcglobal.net Thank you so much,

Found it! Here is the link http://www.yarnspirations.com/pattern/crochet/foxy-stash-basket

I cannot make this as the pattern is not complete. Would be lovely to make though.

Isn't there some of the instructions missing...? It doesn't seem to be finished and the instructions for the ears are not included here...!

Where can I get the full pattern?
