Indeed a pattern for a good classic camouflage. I can't seem to find a good one or make one that looks good. Any suggestions on where or how to get a good one? It's for a bit lighter ( cover)

Thank you so much for the feedback, Melanie, I really appreciate that.

This was a 'real-lfe' example of why swatches are so important.  Eventhough on the very rare occasion, it can have a good outcome.  My experience has been that very few times does not swatching have a good outcome.

Swatching is absolutely crucial for designers. The swatch gives you all of the information you need up front about your pattern before you ever start crocheting or knitting the actual piece.  Almost 100% of the time doing your homework by swatching at least a 5" x 5" piece will actually end up saving you far more time, energy and frusttration than if you hadn't swatched. 

Again, thank you for the feedback.  It is very important to me to write tutorials in such a way that people can understand them and use them to suit their own purposes.

tell him i said i said 6/21 is the date it's not open for discussion picky assed thing :p yeah char can sew she makes clothes,toys,curtains all sorts Smiley southern france or an italian chateau is what i want 


Ugh, what a nightmare!  Glad you taught her not to demand things immediately.  She sounds like one of those people who think the world revolves around them and we are all just slaves to order around.  Probably is also the type who has rarely (if ever) been told "no."

I say you did exactly the right thing.

I want to make a scarf that is 245 stitches long and 25 stitches high how do I do that?
