A nice lacy looking afghan, which uses a simple basic pattern. It is just a two row pattern, which you can master in no time and be able to complete this afghan very quickly. I think it can be made using multi colours in one piece or even lace edging made in a different colour can make it look even better than the picture shown.

WIP in Iced Violet

Love this pattern!! Super easy and quick. I also made this for a baby boy using white 8 rows and a light gray for 2 rows, then used light gray shells around, and finished with a row of white shells. Came out very pretty. If you are confused with the directions of the trim, it is easy to first follow the shells already made as shown in the pic, and then evenly space the rest of the shells going all around the blanket. You won't have a problem using this technique. It worked for me.

Am I right in saying that there are 7 dc's at the start of the 1st row (inc. the ch3) and 8 dc's at the end if the row? Can anyone tell me why this is so? Beautiful design but am new to crochet so hoping I can complete this project

When you dc into the 4th chain from the hook, the first 3 chain counts as 1 dc, plus the dc you just stitched, then dc into 6 more should add up to 8 dc if you count the first ch-3 as a dc. Hope this helps.

I've just finished it with a border of another colour. It's lovely. Of course I found some mistakes and made adjustments. For the border, where it says "1sc in next sc", we should have read "1sc in next dc". I used 3 yarns of TLC Baby and it is beautiful and big enough for a baby blanket.

HELP, how do I figure out how to adjust this for a baby blanket?

Has anyone figured out the border? I am having problems. Can some help? Straight off it is not working out. It's a pretty pattern if this border works out

I'm having a problem with the first round of the border, starting at the very beginning. It says, "Work along top edge Shell in right corner dc, skip 2 dcs, Shell in next dc, skip 3 dcs, Shell in next dc, [Shell in ch 2 space of next 2 Shells, skip 4 dcs, Shell in next dc, skip 3 dcs, Shell in next dc] across until last 2 Shells, Shell in ch 2 space of each Shell, skip 2 dcs, Shell in next dc, skip 3 dc, Shell in last corner dc." Where it says to "[Shell in ch 2 space of next 2 Shells, skip 4 dcs, Shell in next dc, skip 3 dcs, Shell in next dc]", it doesn't look even. The pic shows a shell going into the 3rd dc from the previous row, and then in the 2nd last dc before the next shell. Hope I'm making sense. I could really use some advice. Thanks!

I'm having a problem with this border already. It just doesn't look right to me, and I've done it exactly how it says to do it, and it's even identical to the pic. It's just not even looking; it looks off by one stitch and it's bugging me. Can someone help please?

Am I not seeing this correctly or does it say on the first row at the very end to DC in the next 8dcs? We are on the first row and haven't made any DCs yet... Please help. Thank you, Patti

Yes,there is a little mistake I have noticed too, you keep working dc in each of the next 8chs.

Lovely pattern and so easy to do, pleasure to crochet

Thanks for allowing me to print these patterns. I am looking forward to getting started on them as soon as we get over the festive season. MERRY CHRISTMAS. and HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL

I made this in shocking pink for my niece. Beautiful and easy pattern.

The multiple is 17 + 10. I made one and started another. I contacted the pattern maker and this is what she indicated.

how can I print this pattern off my computer?

confusing answer

Open the page with pattern on it. Go to "Tools" icon (round gear on mine). In the drop down box go to "Print" then slide to the next drop down box and choose "Print Preview" and click. That should open a page for you to select to print all or some of the pattern.

To print any page including pictures (1) Highlight everything that you want to print. (To highlight--Using a mouse, hold the left side of the mouse down and drag the cursor over everything that you want to print. It should become shaded blue.) (2) Put the cursor on any of the shaded page. Right click the mouse so that a window opens. Click on "copy". (3) Click Start and open up a blank document (4) Place the cursor on the blank page and right click the mouse so that a window opens. Click on "paste". The page to be copied should appear.

I just completed a lovely pink baby afghan and right now I am wishing I had seen the pattern first. I might have to make it just for the fun of it. Thanks for sharing.

How do I print this pattern out?

okay anyone know for sure the multiple, i saw it was sorta answered but no for sure answer, thanks

Love this! Gr. Teal and passion purple. Caron yarn. My granddaughter picked the colors. Beautiful!

Can you tell the multiple for this afghan. I would like to make a bedspread. Thanks

I believe it is 21+ 3.

18 +3 I think... Sorry. I am no help am I?

This is such a lovely feminine afghan. I'm using Caron Simply Soft in blush pink for a living room throw. Our living room has many windows and as such, many square corners. The decor is primarily darker blues with white and I wanted something like this to soften the contrasts. Since our couch has hints of pink and rose tones, the soft pink was a good choice to feminize the space and soften some of the squared corners for windows and doorways. It's beautiful and will be enjoyed for years to come.

This is such a lovely and easy pattern. I'm doing a variation of this design for a curtain right now and it's turning out so pretty. Can't wait for a new baby to come along so I can make the afghan too!
