I have to admit - when I started this project- I cruised thru the pattern just to get an idea of how it was put together - I did not understand. I figured if I was into the piece maybe the directions would make sense. They didn't. I got to the part that says "turn the corner" ?! What corner - there is no darn corner - oh wait - I have to MAAAKE the corner - huh - so here is the corner I am turn/making.Now that I can understand it a bit better - I love working on it. I think if I have time I will trim the edges with a row of single crochet in my hand spun black alpaca. I also have a basket of vintage buttons - I could work a few up the front for accent.
