Thanks for the helpful comments, so frustrating when you get going on a pattern and then have to problem solve why it is not working out. It is beautiful and I would like to give it a try. I will definitely follow the advice. I especially like patterns with "join as you go"!

I was looking at the pattern and it's definitely not for beginners. I understand why one reader wants to see a tutorial of this afghan. Well it's a beautiful lace afghan and it's worth making one. Thanks for the free pattern which is easy to understand for veteran crocheters. (I wonder if patterns can further be made easier to figure out.) I would think so.

I would really like to see a tutorial video on how to make this afghan please.

That's a great idea - thank you for suggesting that! I'll speak to our video department about the possibility of making a tutorial for each square type. Thank you! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns

This looks like such a beautiful throw. As of today, Feb 29, 2016, has anyone corrected the pattern instructions for errors as noted by other members below?

It would be nice to have a closer photo of the square. Agree with Lyinal, I think there is a count error - too many of the loops and affects all the rest of rows. With a closer photo we can verify the count. Thanks, it's a very pretty throw and hope the pattern can be reviewed.

I have given this only 3 stars only for the beauty in the photo.having a bit of fun looking for granny throw, tried this pattern with some scrap and found 9 loops are 3 to many for it to lay flat. I will try with a 3 yarn and see how it works. thank God I had not gone out and paid for all the yarn needed.
