  1. I would very much like to crochet this pattern, but am unable to copy and paste so I can print it. As I do not wish to spend hours in front of my computer, I can’t see any way I can attempt this pattern. Any ideas on how to resolve this problem?

    1. Hi Judith! I am very sorry for the inconvenience but we have deactivated the option to print or copy, because several web pages, Intagram and Facebook groups were selling my patterns in PDF version without my consent, I am very sorry I hope you understand me.

  2. Hi! First of all, thank you so much for this pattern. But I have a question for the legs. It says for rounds 12 – 15, BLO 1 sc around but it looks like it is just 1 sc around, not in BLO. Is that true?
    Thanks in advance!
