Free Crochet Charts Reading Tutorial - Compact Mirror Crochet Pattern at my Ravelry shop.

Please, note, this is a crochet PATTERN, not finished item!
Hi, everybody!
Knowing that many people struggle with crochet charts, I made this tutorial to help them understand how to read crochet charts.
This tutorial is absolutely free, but, please, read Copyright info, since it has some restrictions! Thank you for your interest in my patterns!

This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download
I include crochet charts in all my patterns. Though some people prefer written instructions, for many others it is much easier to follow charts.
Unfortunately not every crocheter out there knows how to read them.
If you are ready to step out of your comfort zone and learn a new skill, this tutorial will help you understand how crochet charts work.
I believe having this new skill under your belt will result in many wonderful crochet projects!
This tutorial includes written instructions, charts and step-by-step pictures.
Skill Level: Easy
You have to be able to follow written instruction and make stitches: chain, slip stitch, single crochet, back post single crochet, double crochet, treble crochet.
