I just finished this afghan This was my attempt at an Intermediate pattern Thanks for sharing the pattern It was much easier than I expected considering its labeled as Intermediate I was sick in bed when I started it and very bored I thought this project would take my mind off not feeling well and it worked I enjoyed making it It works up fast and easy It is light and lacy A true Arizona Afghan fit for those almost cool desert nights I especially liked the nice scalloped edges with large fans on two opposite sides and small fans on the other two opposite sides It had a nice simple three row pattern with only a couple of different and easy stitches on each row The border took a bit of figuring out at first but was easy within minutes It inspired me to try more Intermediate patterns I usedRead More Red Heart Turqua yarn

Beautiful! Thanks for sharing your experience and the pictures!! -Krista, Editor

I was just reading the other comments and I'm glad that one crocheter was able to get her issue right because one kind lady rectified the error in the pattern. Thanks. But really this turquoise throw is so beautiful the color evokes happy thoughts about going to the beach, sailing, marine life. Thanks for the pattern which is just right in front.

This is a beautiful pattern thank you for sharing it. I am fairly new to crochet and thought Id give this a try. I chained 144. Great. I completed ROW 1 I had everything right with 42 dc, 20 picots, and 40 chain spaces. This is where I get confused. After following the directions all the way to the end, I came out with 40 sc, but 21 ch-6 spaces. Ive tried twice and still get 21. Am I reading the instructions wrong? Do you completely skip the very first space after the two dc in ROW 1, then sc into the space between the first picot and the second set of dcs? My two ends are the same, with the very first ch 2 space empty, but Im still getting 21 ch 6 spaces. Any advice??

Hi sandhcoogle, There is a mistake in the written directions. Row 2 should read Ch6, skip first ch2 space, sc in next space, ch1, sc in next ch ch2 space. The rest of the instructions are correct. In other words, the ch 6 loop is over the picots, and the ch1 loop is over the 2 dc's. This will give you 20 ch6 loops, and 19 ch1 loops. Hope that helps.

Here's the original free link from Red Heart http// == -throw I've checked it and it is correct.

Thank you Ischmidtcanada. I will certainly check out the original pattern. I am glad to hear that it wasn't just me messing up )

I was unable to find the original pattern, but since you were so kind as to take your time to send me the corrected version for Row 2, I am able to make this pretty throw. Thank you so very much!

not made by me yet

How many chains do you do for the starting chain?

The directions say 144.
