This pattern is also available as a workshop pattern on Craftsy.com. On there you will get a pattern with more step by step instructions for the pattern as well as a place to ask the designer and other students of the workshop questions.
The pattern here on Ravelry is only the pattern and does not include the workshop. However, there are many photos included in the written pattern to help you along the way.
