What a gorgeous design and color. I am hooked on purple. Any shade of it. Like another poster said, from a distance this looks like another afghan. But up close the details show thru and it is such a delicate feminine look. It's not hard and I want to make it in just this color.

The designer put a lot of thought into this throw. The design is so delicate but I am sure the project will last as long as it is taken care of. Not sure which color to select but I think a pale pink will be best for my shabby chic bedroom.

Another unassuming piece of crochet masterpiece. From afar, you'd think it's a very simple blanket that appears drab but when you look closely, the finished product is amazing! It is an intricate lace design utilizing the shell stitch mostly in double crochets. So amazing!! Let's do this!

This Lavender Lace Throw is exquisite. The design is very feminine. The shell and v-stitch look very complicated but once you get the hang of it, it is really simple. The color pallet in my guest room is pastels and this lavender lace throw will fit right in.

I'm doing the lavender throw. I did chain 148 and i'm on row 61 right now. I'm not getting 44"x53" like in the instructions. I'm not getting that size. i'm doing 69 rows. is there a mistake in instructions. i'm using 3 skeins but instructions says 8 skeins.

This pattern would be lovely worked up as a baby blanket for a baby gift for a baby shower, or done in white as a christening gift. This lacy blanket would also work as a throw on the back of a couch, or as a lap blanket for your mom or grandmother. I got this done in a weekend, super easy.

I have to make another yarn run. I can't wait to start it.

Hi i am having trouble under standing the pattern after missing 3 chains you do a shell twice do you do a chain in between the 2 sets of shells is there a picture tutorial as i really like to do this pattern blanket please help thankyou

Never mind. I see the instructions are corrected. Thank you.

Please send me corrected instructions as well. If I chain 148 will the rest of the instructions be correct? Thank you.

I can't wait to make this, but I'm confused. It says it's made using multiples of 8 + 12. 15 times 8 equals 120 plus 12 equals 132. This starts with "ch135" WHAT am I missing?!!!

Hi Tanyamoon--Thank you so much for your comment. I checked in with the designer and it looks like a little typo was made...the starting chain should be 148, not 135. I will fix the instructions now. Thank you so much for bringing this to our attention. We do try our best to review our patterns before publication, but sometimes a little mistake slips in! :) Thank you again for your attention to detail and for letting us know about this little problem. We're so glad you like the design and we hope you have fun creating it! Have a wonderful day!--FaveCrafts Editor

I would like to print up pattern , how do I do that.?

Hi there! If you hold down "Ctrl+P" on your keyboard, that will give you the option to print! You can also right click anywhere on the page and select print. What I like to do is copy and paste the text into a Word document so I can format it nicely before I print. I hope that helps!

cant wait to make!!!!!
