I wish that I can read the pattern and work it out, but I am not good at all to follow that, I wonder if you can make a video tutorial? Can I ask someone to do it to post on video.

Hi! I am curious about the directions for this pattern, I don't quite understand the "ring" part. For example, the pattern starts out saying "Line 1 : Beg make 5 rings use wire put on 5 rings." What do you mean by the 5 rings and the use wire and use wire put on 5 rings? I totally don't understand. Thank you!

I also cannot get past the first instruction and find these directions extremely difficult to follow. I adore the finished product and think your work is simply exquisite. Would you please please please consider a video tutorial?

Does "ring" mean a chain? I have been crocheting for a very long time and I have never heard the term ring used in this context. Thanks

I am excited to find a yarn my grandmother had in her things when she passed away 20 plus years ago. Peter Pan I made my first top out of that yarn.
