Poor at best Review by Virginia

I've been crocheting and reading patterns for over 40 years. This pattern would be rated poor even if it had been free. Unfortunately, I was duped into paying for it.

I had to scour the internet to find multiple corrections to this pattern that the author, Sue Perez, has posted and even then the corrections that she has posted on numerous web sites are also poor. She then shifts the blame for the errors onto the magazine.

After 4 attempts, numerous "rip outs" and corrections I have chosen to scrap the entire project and will NEVER purchase another pattern from this author. Due to her claims that the magazine was at fault it also makes me wary of ever purchasing another pattern from Interweave.
