This pretty afghan looks to me like snowflakes and stars at night, has scalloped edges, which add to the beauty of it. Seems perfect for the festive season. This pattern is classifies as Easy. I feel this afghan pattern will grow faster and will take less time to make because it has lots of spaces in between.

Type in Dusty Snowflake Throw on YouTube and you will find instructions/tutorials for doing this afghan.

Thank you!

I also cannot figure the joining of the motifs. I am so disappointed as I bought enough yarn for 2. I wish they would put a tutorial up for us! ( Such a beautiful throw too.

I've crocheted for over 50 years and am an experienced crocheter. This pattern has an "easy" skill level?? A friends mother asked for my help. She, like me, is a very experienced crocheter. Well, needless to say neither one of us had any success with this pattern. We were able to make the mofits, but joining was a different story. I would suggest that Red Heart consider a tutorial video showing the basics of the mofits and a closeup of joining the mofits as you crochet. This would be most helpful and I would venture to say that it would open the possibly of more crocheters making this beautiful afghan.

Good to know!

I print out a lot of patterns on here. The only thing that prints is what you need. Does your printer have a preview.

Need a print option. The ads cover too many important pieces of information on how to make this.

Has anyone completed this project? Do you have an estimate on time to complete? I am intermediate - advance in my crochet abilities and pretty fast.

Please see my comment that I posted today. Myself and another individual had difficulty with this pattern and did not finish the afghan. We are both very experienced crocheters.

Iam making this Afgan now, using white and red yarn. Its beautiful the blue one too.
