Hi all!
I crocheted this piece a WHILE ago but just now got my butt in gear and wrote the pattern. Actually, it's more of a formula than a pattern since you can really use any yarn at any gauge, though I recommend something with some drape and that is fairly light.
Here's a picture

You can get the pattern/formula here:

That's really pretty! It looks like it can be used as a shawl too. Thanks for sharing the pattern with us. :hug

Oh, you could aboslutely wear it as a shawl. It's actually on display at the LYS from which I got the yarn and they have it up as a shawl.

It's actually quite easy to make, as well. I've done another piece just like it, only double and with a different border and wear it as a poncho. :D!

I've been wanting to do this pattern for a long time! I finally got some yarn for it yesterday, printed out the pattern, and sat down to play.

Alas, I got completely confused by the instructions. :think

The pattern says:
"With crochet hook and yarn, make a chain a little longer than desired final length. Make sure the total number of stitches is a multiple of 4+1
Turn

Row 1: *Ch 5, sc in 4th ch from hook* across
Turn"

I understand about the first part (making the chain), it's just the Row 1 instructions. If I follow those as I think I should, I never actually put any stitches into the original chain. From looking at some other patterns, and the pictures, should it be "*Ch 5, sc in 4th ch from starting place* across" (since you're supposed to make loops?)

Any advice is appreciated! :)

"I suppose it would be perfectly impossible to keep house with only thirty-six doilies," conceded Anne, with a solemn face but dancing eyes.
