This is a wonderful square! Would love to be able to make it. I cannot figure out how to print just the pattern and picture of the square. What is the secret?

Hi Jobeth, I normally copy the picture and save, then copy just the print and paste into a note. If you want, you can email me at and I can email you the PDF file of the pattern.

Ma'am, I am trying to crochet From my Heart 6" sq. I'm a new crocheter, and I have a questions Rnd 3: regarding Ch3, 2dc in same st. [Dc in next dc, 3dc in next dc, ch1, dc in next dc, ch1,sksp,3dc in next dc]4x, minus. I have the correct numbers from the previous round. My question is that some of the instruction that state a dc--is a sp, do I crochet into the space?
