    I’m self-taught from childhood…a LOOOOONG time ago. There was a book called “Learn to Crochet” from J. P. Coats. (similar to this one on Ebay – – but not quite THAT old! LOL!) It had line drawings and printed instructions – much like an online tutorial is today. So I never learned how to read or understand a diagram. I’d love a series for those, Mikey! Thanks!

      OOPS!!! Guess I should have actually looked at your series!

    This condensing is needed for stitch names and pattern directions because I found out the difference when patterns from Europe (England) in accept to their magazines that the stitch names are different. I was glad when another magazine listed a comparison dictionary which I keep to understand the patters. Thank you for taking the time and energy to unite all crafters.
