Does anyone have the assembly diagram for this? The directions simply say to follow the picture but it is rumpled on a chair so assembly has been difficult.

Hi crochet5515, This is a company pattern that we do not own and unfortunately the original pattern did not come with a diagram. I'm sorry I couldn't be more help!

This is simply gorgeous as an afghan but try thinking outside the box. How about a wall hanging? Or a holiday table runner? Even place mats. I see so many different ways to assemble this.i think I will make the wall hanging for the dining room wall and a matching table runner. Thank you for sharing this beauty.

Very neat looking unlike the previous designs in the group. This has very clear lines and the design is so defined and the shade of green used is so well-defined. It helps that the pattern is found on the same page. Thanks.

Altho I don't need another afghan or blanket but looking at this I was hit with an idea. I will make it as a Christmas table runner for my table. Making it long enough to hang over with the tassels. Either red or green or even white with red and green thread running thru it.
