Please do not post this pattern to any other website.  You may post a link to this page for other users.  If you make the pattern, please let me know how it turned out, yarn information, hook size used, etc.  I will note your comments for future users.

This pattern has been checked with the original printed pattern twice.  It is "exactly" as printed in the original publication. No guarantees are made as to the accuracy of the original pattern.  I have probably not made the pattern and will not know how to support your crochet questions.  Thanks!!
