I like the simplicity of this Feminine Eyelet Lace Crochet Afghan. Very appropriate for daughter's room, as blanket, bed, or chair cover. The mix of colors is not boring.

Why is it difficult to have the patterns from this site to be copied? Why can't you make all the patterns printer friendly hence transferring them to PDF or printer friendly rather than copying and pasting them to word pad? Those who have arthritis in their hands find it hard to do manually even though they keep at trying to crochet!!!!!

The print button has been added. You can find it under the title of the project above. Thanks, Krista, Editor

I have tried making this afghan but it doesn't seem to line up correctly. I have taken it apart and started over 8 times with the same results. Can you explain how to make that shell stitch? I have tried the way shown to no avail.

I have the same problem. I cannot make the shell stitch work.
