Very pretty and unique. I love the way the pinwheels interlock, making it so there really is no center starting point when looking at them. It is nice and large too, big enough to cover a full or queen sized bed properly. Matching shams, or accent pillows in a contrasting colour would look lovely with this.

Hi, I was lucky enough to find this exact item at a second hand store that I frequent. Lucky, because as much as I love crocheting this would take too long for me. If a project takes too long I start to lose interest. It is very lovely, I use it as a tablecloth!

This blanket is indeed fit for a queen. Very beautiful. Thanks for the pattern which is just in front of the page.

Also you can tell if a pattern is UK or US as the UK patterns don't use the term sc, for single crochet. Their term for single crochet is dc. If you see sc anywhere in the pattern you can safely assume its a US pattern.

If you have Windows 10 use the open book pattern on the top menu bar. It won't print the diagram but will print the pattern notes. Just draw the diagram for assembly using a few of the motifs. Its 11 on the first row, 12 on the second - alternating the rows for a total of 13 rows. To print press ctrlp or use the printer icon at the bottom of the page. I don't know if Windows 8 has these icons but you can print the pattern using ctrl p but it will print pictures/colors etc. As for joining attach each motif one by one in rows then attach row by row. Make sure you alternate 11 motif rows with 12 motif rows. Also be careful what side you attach. Its easy to get lost when doing the attaching. Hope this helps.

How do I print this pattern??

How do I print this pattern??

Hi. Command P worked for me. A PDF pops up on the screen and you can print that neatly.

Does anyone know how to join as you go? Please tel me how. Thank you in advance.

Are abbreveiation in US or UK terminology?

Beautiful pattern agree with the comment of Char55 the best way is to join as you go all the motifs.

While the motifs themselves are easy and work up quickly. The bedspread itself isn't exactly what I would call effortless...joining 149 motifs and weaving in the ends takes a LOT of time. Although I haven't made this particular pattern, I have made similar ones.
