I have been a crochet designer for more than 10 years. I love to think outside the box and to try and do things a bit differently. I love to learn new techniques and to challenge myself. I firmly believe that crochet should fun and evoke joy and pleasure. Creating and designing is one of my life's passions.

    Hi Michelle
    Yes I apologize for that! It should actually be: Pattern – K2; K1B; *K1; K1B. Repeat from * to last 6 STS; K2.
    Have made the correction. Thank you 😉

  2. I believe that row 9 has an error in the way it’s written. Shouldn’t it be (in my own shorthand):
    K4 (border) K2; *K1B; K1 Repeat from * to last 5 stitches K1 (border) K4
