When you hear the tickle of a cool breeze through a wind chime, you know spring is in the air. The Pastel Wind Chime Crochet Lace Pattern is the perfect blanket to celebrate the coming of this new season. These crochet stripes alternate between a basketweave crochet pattern, a crochet shell stitch pattern, and a crochet popcorn stitch pattern.

The result is a beautiful array of lacy sweetness, accentuated by its soft pastel color scheme. This crochet afghan almost looks like a beautifully decorated Easter egg!

A nice lacy colourful afghan pattern. I like the title Pastel wind chime crochet lace given to this afghan pattern. The pastel colour combination gives the feeling of peace and tranquility. The pattern is classified as Easy, makes me feel lets have a go, be selfish and make one for myself.

I just love this Pastel Wind Chime Crochet Lace Pattern. The panels done in different stitches put together makes for a lovely afghan. I'm sure you can use your favorite colors to make this uniquely yours. This is a great pattern that I will be making.. Thank you so much for this free pattern..

Isn't this a beautiful pattern! Looking at the current color palette for Caron I think I would substitute the off white for the gray. I also really like the way that some of the more open stitches are "protected" by some of the more closed stitches. Once I build up to these stitches I think this is one pattern I'll come back and work up!

I was wondering what color is contrast a. On the pattern it states that you need 4 of the contrast a color but there is not a color name or color number. Please let me know what contrast a is. My e-mail address is ks@aprpets.org.
