This crochet version of the of the old Double Wedding Ring quilt really excited me. The different textures and weights of the yarns I chose made it a bit of a fun challenge. The original pattern was for only one weight of yarn, so I created versions for bulky to lite DK yarns.

*** The pattern is under reconstruction and is not available at this time. ***

Beautiful! that is different from the Coats & Clark one, as the "bands" are done in one piece and yours are separate. What a work of art to do it that way. You did a Great job.

Thank you all. I have done many over the years for the craft group but this one was the hardest to let go of. My daugther doesn't know it but if/when she marries she will be getting one in shades of blue.
