Can someone please help me with the joining of the squares. Im struggling to understand this.

The join is tricky until you get it down and then it's a "I coulda had a V-8" moment. One advantageous thing about this project is that it's done in panels so you can have one at home, one in a take along bag, and one at work for your break time. I had 3 panels going at any given time, which was handy because I was going through physical therapy at the time, which meant a great deal of waiting. I used DROPs Safran and a 3.5 mm hook for my project and I gifted the afghan to my brother and sister-in-law for their 1-yr anniversary. They were astonished at the intricacy of it. That was funny to me because after looking at it for so long it didn't look fancy to me any more since I knew how it was assembled. Sis-in-law was determined that it was a "look with your eyes, not with your hands" item, but I told her it was meant to be used and if it got worn out I could always hook another one! I did Not divulge that it took me a year to make it, haha. I mostly worked on it in our conference room, when it wasn't being used, during my lunch hour. I did find a place to upload the .pdf of my write-up to and if AFC allows links, here it is on Pinterest https//

Can you please help me with the join? I cannot seem to get it right

Lacey patterns often look much more difficult than they really are. As long as you pay careful attention to the pattern, you shouldn't encounter many issues. This pattern is great because it's quick to make and the motifs aren't too intricate, but the end result is just as beautiful as son more complicated patterns I've come across.

I dont understand how to join motifs and picture not close up enough to figure it iut. Do you have a diagram or more instructions.

This is so elegant and regal. Lady Windsor is a very appropriate name. This will definitely make it to my priority list of projects. It's inspiring to have the pattern right in front of the page. Thanks.

Thank you for this beautiful pattern.

The name is very appropriate as it is reminiscent of the grandeur of the British Royal family. It is so immaculate, so dainty, so clean, fir for a queen. Do you share my awe and admiration?

Thank you, thank you! I have been doing the CP then deleting ads, etc., like forever! This will save my sanity!!!!

Thanks! works great!

try this https// it's really handy

FYI, can be downloaded and printed directly from yarn site.

Pattern looks beautiful. Advertised as a printable pattern, but there is no print button. It's very time consuming to paste into word, delete the ads, and then print the pattern. Please include a print button for patterns advertised as printable in your emailed newsletter. Thx
