I love the colors and the lacy look of this throw. Gorgeous!

I had trouble with my crocheted beginning edges laying flat. I found out it was how I was using my hook. When making a stitch that's going to be an edge I push my loop of yarn past the hooked tip and down to the rounder fat part of the Crochet hook. It makes the loop a bit bigger, and gives the edge some breathing room.

wish there was a tutorial,,

having a problem with it not laying flat please help
