Please elaborate "Repeat A.2, every time A.2 has been worked vertically 1 time, work A.2b 2 times more in width. " I tried many times but cannot seem to get it right. tks/Drops follower from Malaysia.

Dear HK Lum, it meanst that you have to knit the rows of pattern A.2 above each other. And after every time you finished one repeat (for rows) you have to crochet one more repeats (for stitches, i.e horizontally). I hope this helped. Happy crochet!

I love your crochet patterns! They are the best! Sadly, I can't follow the crochet pattern diagrams. In USA patterns we get written step by step instructions. That works well for me! Is there any way you can provide me with written step by step instructions for your crochet patterns? Thank you!

Dear Mrs Hsia, this pattern has only diagram: each symbol match a stitch/group of stitch, start working A.1 from the bottom (= ring of chains, black dot) and work row 1 (and all odd numbered rows) from the right towards the left and row 2 (and all even numberred rows) from the left towards the right. Happy crocheting!
