Hello and welcome to Just Answer!


Do you know what afghan pattern it is?

And what more do you need to know? What the stitches mean?

The pattern is called vintage lace -- I know the stitches I just don't know how to read directions. does this tell me that i am to go around all 4 sides of the afghan?
Expert: danny541, Top General Researcher replied 8 years ago
Yes it means to go around all4 sides of the afghan to complete the pattern!

It does'nt help-- ˆI still can't read the directions --- what do I do after ]11 times. I'm sorry, but you have not help me.
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
No, I will not hit the accept button. When I get the answer I will let you know. I've used the service before and the individual was very helpful.      
Expert: danny541, Top General Researcher replied 8 years ago
I would have let you know I'm opting out, but when the customer opts you out you can't answer until you are allowed back into the question.

I'm sorry I was unable to help you, but you are not real clear about what you need. Do you need to know what all the abbreviations mean in the instructions? Without the instructions sent to me, I can't help, but if you need the translation for the abbreviations you wrote down, I can help!
