  1. I am confused by the directions given for the Crocheted Baby Set- cap.
    After the ten rows are finished, it says “Neck Band” instead of brim . Does this mean on the cap? Does the ribbon row go below the folded edge?? I have not seen anything like this and the picture does not enlarge.
    The jacket turned out very well, but there was confusion in row 7 of that. It seemed the directions were written wrong?

  2. I made all the half rainbows and whole rainbows for the rainbow fan quilt many years ago — it seems like at least 20 years ago. I was unable to assemble it because I lost my pattern and couldn’t figure out how to do it.

    Tonight I found your site on the internet and I am grateful that you are so generously sharing this pattern. Thank you so much. It will enable me to finish what I started many years ago.

  3. I love your blog! I just stumbled on the beautiful rainbow afghan pattern. It’s so pretty…I would really like to try it. Your jokes are funny…oldies, but still goodies. 🙂 Thank you for brightening my day!

    • Thank you Vicky for visiting my website and for the kind words.
      Yes the Rainbow afghan seems to be the most popular one this season. I’am making one for a customer right now.
      If you need any help just let me know.
