  1. My grandmother and I lived states apart, so I was never able to learn to crochet from her, or crochet with her. I did visit later in life, and she gave me her crochet patterns. She was such a good crocheter. I am the only one in the family that crochets now. Looking through patterns tonight, I found this one, but it didn't have all of the sheets of the pattern with it. I thought I would try "googling" it, and here it is! Thank you!
