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.

This is a lovely pattern. I am currently looking for a shawl/wrap pattern that is lacy and light. I bet that I could use this!

Ohhhh, this is pretty! I can't wait to make this one!

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!
