What a nice memory!! I love grammas. :) Do you already crochet (like, with worsted weight yarn)? I'd say that for anyone who knows how to chain, single crochet, and double crochet should be able to do this quite easily. Just follow each step, step-by-step. The designer really does a great job of aying out the directions. I usually have problems with written patterns (my brain), and I followed this without a glitch!
