i am trying to open the link for the pattern but cant get it open. where can i get it . please help

I really enjoyed knitting this little coat,the pattern was easy to follow and it looks brill.

I'm a fairly experienced knitter and I'm not even going to TRY this pattern. The instructions are too confusing and there are plenty of patterns with very clear/professional instructions. Sorry

not sure what you are going on about-this pattern was remarkably clear-I made 2 in less than a week for my god daughter who is having twins. They worked out so well, i've taken the pattern to my knitting group to make for the hospitals. I think its unfair of you to blame the designer for your lack of skills or understanding of the pattern.

THE INSTRUCTIONS OF THIS PATTERN LEAVE MUCH TO DESIRED. YHE SUTHOR COULD HSVE BEEN MORE SPECIFIC AND INFORMATIVE SINCE SHE SEEMS TO BE AN EXPERT.

Hello I am really struggling with the decreasing element of this pattern. I have read and re-read the pattern, but I cannot see how it works. There are way too many stitches left, soI'm guessing that part of it must be repeated. Help, please!! Thanks Vanessa
