This pattern is IN.SANE. Literally. I've been crocheting for about 4 years and I thought I was decent until I bought this pattern. I found a tutorial on how to do the beginning, foundation single crochet, and once I mastered that I thought I'd be ok, but from there the pattern just gets harder and harder. I started it and started over three times before getting stuck on row 3. I hate to give up now, but I just can't figure it out. BE ADVISED: this pattern is for very skilled crocheters!!
