    • Once you work up the patterns you will see that they do not look the same in person. One is a cross stitch pattern and the other is a 3 dc cluster. They will not be together the assembly of the afghan so they will not ‘appear’ to look too much alike. It could just be the same color that is throwing you off.

    • The instructions for the Popcorn are right inside the pattern.
      ***** work Popcorn as follows: 5 dc in next hdc, drop loop from hook, insert hoo in first dc of group, hook dropped loop and draw through, ch 1 to close – Popcorn made, ****

  • I am trying to download the CAL since my computer crashed and I don’t seem to find week 6 and 7 and 8?
