This Pink Raspberry Throw is 50 inches by 63 inches in size, big enough for two people. It is easy enough to do but not for beginners. This is another pattern that I can't wait to do. Thanks for the free pattern that is well presented and easy to understand.

I just started this afghan and I'm stuck on the Petal stitch. I just finish a afghan that called for the Petal stitch that is all toghter different. Are there different ways to do the Petal stitch?br / Thank Youbr /

This afghan is so beautiful. I am almost finished with it and I am having trouble with the corners. Please help!!

I'm having trouble with the edging (specifically, getting the correct number of stitches evenly spaced in rnd1) Any hints or tips?

I HAVE BEEN A CROCHETER FOR 15 GOING ON 16 YEARS NOW AND I COULD MAKE THIS AFGHAN IN ABOUT 2&1/2 WEEKS MAX

the beginning paragraph says "simple enough for even inexperience crocheters" the next line says "Intermediate" Which is it? It is indeed beautiful. I would like to see an closer picture to see the stitch better.
