I, too, love this pattern and agree about the photos. I'm an accomplished crocheter but work on charity projects with a variety of levels. I know they'd also like this pattern, although I'll not share it unless you agree. I will refer them to you blog, if you'd like.

I would love to get the pattern for the tank top or whatever it is that is in your picture (over the white T-shirt). That is beautiful -not sure if I can do it but would love to try.
Thanks for your help.

Just found this pattern through ravelry and finished my first neckwarmer today using black wool-ease and two white buttons with black paisley pattern. Turned out great and your pattern was very easy to follow. Thanks so much for sharing!

In all fairness to the artist, you would have to know how to adjust your own computer's printing and formatting settings in order to not use up so much ink. All photos can be lightened, made bigger or smaller, and/or moved and copied to a Word Document in order to get the printout that is suitable for your tastes. Don't blame the website or the artist, you have control over your own printouts always. Carla J.01

Just finished my first one. This is a great because it will fit under a winter jacket and just enough to keep your neck warm. Came out nicer than I expected. Thanks for sharing it with all of us.
