May we present to you the Downton Abbey Inspired Crochet Afghan, a superb addition to any household. This light and lacy crochet afghan pattern immediately reminded us of one of the most popular TV shows around. Can't you easily see any of the Ladies of Downton wrapping up in this lacy motif? Using the crochet picot stitch and cluster stitch, you'll crochet an effortless lace pattern in just one piece. Full of elegance, this pretty throw will add texture to any room of the house.

Wow. A Downtown Abbey accessory! Soo lovely. I can't wait to start this afghan. It looks so lovely. It has a vintage touch to it but that's what actually makes it so lovely and mysterious.

This pattern rates right up there with Cora Crawley herself! How fine and distinguished they both are! It has such a light and airy feel to it. With that open weave I'll look like a lady of leisure for sure. It'll look drop dead gorgeous over my little black dress. Thanks for this exquisite pattern! I think I might even make this up as a unique gift for my auntie.

I appreciate that this is made of 'good ole' Red Heart yarn.' So many patterns use materials such as 'the wool of alpaca shorn on the third of the month after the first full moon'' with prices to match.....out of this world!
