Now let me get to the problems I had with this pattern. For a pattern that costs this much I would have liked to have more pictures to guide me. The pattern did not even include a picture of the back of the coat, which would have been very helpful for hood placement. The directions for making the squares were well written and easy to follow, but I encountered several problems when it came to constructing the coat. As mentioned before there were no pictures of the coat from different angles to use as a reference point. There is a crude diagram for coat layout but no written directions of guidance for how to combine pieces or which order to sew piece together. The pattern also offers no guidance on which methods to use to sew the pieces together, such as whip stitch or something else. After contacting customer service I was sent a document that had more instructions on how to construct the coat, it would have been nice if this was included with the original pattern. I also read on some other reviews that there was a video about hood placement, this video is not mentioned in the pattern I received, nor was I ever given a link to it when I contacted customer service for help. If there is a video, a link to it in the pattern would have been great to have.
To sum up, when I spend $8 plus on a pattern I expect a lot more than than what this pattern offered. I consider myself an advanced crocheter and I still had trouble filling in the holes in this pattern without having to contact customer service for assistance. The pattern is rated as "easy" but I do not think a beginner crocheter could complete the pattern without additional assistance.
I am still a faithful fan of Maggie's Crochet patterns, but I have to say that this particular pattern really disappointed me, hence my need to have to review it on here.
