To get the most out of these boards, before posting a topic, we suggest:

Scrolling through past posts to see if your question has already been asked and answered. Postings are in chronological order of the date when the topic was first posted. You can also use the SEARCH function to look for past posts about your question.

If you don't see your question addressed, or if you have additional questions, post a New Topic rather than replying to an existing topic. This will increase the likelihood of getting responses to your specific question. Also, try to describe your specific question in the topic subject line rather than "New Knitter" or "Help."

I have been crocheting now for about 8 years, but I've never done anything too exciting or challenging. I know how to do burp rags and an afghan that is only singles or doubles, but I've never had to read a pattern and I don't know anyone that can show me. I'm having a really hard time with this and I found a beautiful pattern that I want to make but I CANNOT figure it out. Please let me know if you know what the abbreviations mean.
