I see a color chart for the motif, but no stitch chart for the motif?????


Hello mariannebaran 4090 343, we just verified the pattern against the originally published pattern and all the available information is included. Perhaps you can try contacting Red Heart, the designers of the pattern, for more information? -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

The motif is worked in stockinet.
