Although the basic stitches in this pattern are not difficult, many newer crocheters seem to be finding the pattern hard to follow. I am therefore going to suggest that this pattern requires at least advanced beginner to intermediate crochet skills. If you are having trouble understanding the directions, please feel free to pm me and I will try to help you out. Please be sure your pattern states that it is the May 2011 version.
