OMG. Another very beautiful Christmas masterpiece. Perfect as a gift for a very special person because doing this is really a labor of love. Sooo beautiful!

Easy? Really? This should be labeled Intermediate. More care should be given in rating the difficulty of some of these projects.

Hi Connie, This pattern is taken from Red Heart's website, with their permission, and they have labeled the pattern as Easy, so that's what we've used in our own labeling. If you are having any issues with this pattern, I suggest you contact Red Heart's customer service or see if anyone in the AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns Facebook group has worked this and might have any suggestions for you. :) Thanks! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns
