If you are interested in owning a beautiful piece of art, this may be your project. It looks massive and really heavy. I am not sure if it because of the colors but this is a great looking piece.

This brocade crochet blanket is really very pretty. The blues are very calming and the texture that is visible can also be felt under hand. I may some issues with this because of the lack of photos but nothing bets a failure but a try. I will at least attempt to make one motif.

I've always liked brocade fabric because of the texture. It is intricate, with lots of floral design in just one area. It is very rich, elaborate and very royal-looking. This Brocade Crochet Blanket pattern reminds me of that elaborate work. I wish I could do this laborious project in my lifetime. LOL.

Having some issues on the side petals on this mine do not look the same so not sure what I am doing wrong, please help.

Haven't made it yet, but the blanket and the instructions are the best I've ever seen. It's glorious.
