I like the look of this Raspberry Swiris Crochet Throw. The textures look so different then any other pattern I have seen. Just what I like, different! I do wonder why the picot is called the Foundation picot when it isn't the foundation? Other then that, this pattern looks really interesting and is well written and easy to follow. I'm looking forward to making this one and hoping that if it comes out I'll make a larger one In different colors. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

I agree, insufficient instructions... so here's what I came up with. I believe it's the missing info. the OPEN SHELL is dc, ch 1, dc, ch 1, dc all in the same stitch or chain. Picot is sc, ch 3, sc all in the same stitch. Her foundation picot simply means you are crocheting the picot in the foundation chain. After that it is crocheted in the previous row's stitch. I came up with it yesterday, and it looks identical to the picture she has. So there you have it! Enjoy making this beautiful afghan.'

Need better instructions. Is open shell (dc, ch2, dc)? What is a foundation picot and is the picot ch 3 and slip stitch in the same place?

There are no instructions for the "open shell" stitch, and I have no clue what this is. Too bad, it's a lovely pattern but how can I make it without complete directions?
