WELLLLLL Review by Marilyn

I don't know exactly what to say. $1 is ALMOST free, but since I did pay for this one here goes: First, the impression given was that it was for three (3) hats. When I received the download I discovered it was for a hat, scarf and wrist warmers. Okay. I'll do the scarf. Second: Does the staff member who wrote this pattern think we are geniuses like them??? It is a very nice looking scarf, but the pattern directions are discombobulated! Without "rewriting" the directions, the pattern is next to impossible and very annoying to follow. I know they would refund my dollar but I will not be asking for a refund as yet, as I still have to work on the hat and mitts. Their free downloads are much better written. I would certainly suggest that anyone attempting the scarf pattern to work on it with a "cheap" yarn first, not the one recommended. I would also request a rewritten pattern.
