I am making the Yohji pattern from Vickie Howell's book Pop Goes Crochet.
I have finished crocheting the piece.  The assembly is killing me!
There are step by step directions but I am lost!  Anyone ever make this?
If the diagram was labeled as the written directions are then I think it would give me a clue but it's not!
Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks,
Sherry

I have made scans of the pattern......if anyone can help me figure this out I would be one happy girl!
The 18" and 66" notes I wrote in myself, just to remind me of what the finished size should be.

I don't know what possessed me to make this, especially since the patterns says:  Piecing together is the most complicated part of this project.

I figured:  How hard can it be!?   It's a big rectangle, it gets folded.  Simple.

NOT.    Famous last words!  LOL!

So I gave up on trying to assemble this pattern.
I used the piece to make a shrug-like thing for my Mom.  I'll have to get a photo of her in it.

I may use a piece of fabric and attempt the assembly again....it's something that I just HAVE to conquer otherwise it'll just continue to scratch my brain!!!

wow, that's certainly interesting... I would try doing it with maybe a piece of paper... make the markings and fold the paper to see if you can get it to look like that... then try again?
