  5. You have the best instructional videos. I have been crocheting for many years 15 or more. I have learned more just watching your videos then I have on my own. Thank you and keep them coming. Love them.

  7. These written instructions don't match the video. I would like to give this pattern to my elderly mom. She doesn't have access to the internet. Do you have a corrected version of the written instructions anywhere? Thank you!
