Thats ok! I would suggest looking up tunisian crochet or watching some you tube videos. I link to some great resources in the pattern.
I think you'll find it fast and easy! :)

This is the best pattern I have seen for these! I have four kiddos, so I am going to make one of each house..heehee. Feeding my HP addiction. The tunisian stitch is so easy once you get the hang of it. I was always intimidated by it before but once I tried...super love! :) Thank you so much for sharing your patterm!!
