First of all, to firemanstalker: Here's a link to a page that explains how to read a pattern: http://www.crochetnmore.com/123readapattern.htm There are quite a few more excellent ones. Just google 'how to read a crochet pattern'. I'm sure that we have a how-to section here but I seldom get past the original patterns & the pattern links.

 

To ChampyGirl: You have my undyilng gratitude for this one :)- I'll have to manage to get to the library to print it but somehow I will. This is gorgeous and I love butterflies most of all - butterflies and dolphins.
