This is a beautiful pattern but a little more advanced than some. I must admit though the video does explain it very well. I like to watch the videos first and than use a pattern. I am going to be practicing this one first for awhile because it is such a beautiful pattern and I love that you can change colors. I think that is what makes it easier to do because you can tell where you are at because of the color changes. Has anyone tried this yet? Is it very complicated?

Is there a written pattern? I can follow a pattern much better than a video.

Is there a written pattern that goes with the video? I would like to know how much yarn and how many stitches across for a full size pattern.
