  • Hi, I paid for the PDF pattern for this beautiful baby blanket and for some reason it will not down load. I would appreciate it if you could help me. Thank you for your help. I look forward to receiving more of your patterns and news letters.

    • Hi Janice, it stands for front loop only or back loop only, and it refers to the 2 top loops that you normally insert your hook under. So if you’re not supposed to work under both it will tell you which one to use. Does that help?

  • Hi,
    I would like to try this pattern.
    Just one doubt
    The rows that I repeat
    will it be like start with hdc both loops in the first stitch, then front loop hdc, back loop hdc continue and end the row with front loop hdc and hdc in both loops


    • Yes. By going through both loops for the first and last stitch it will keep the edges from stretching so it will hold its shape better.
