Notes

  1. Duster is made from full motifs, half motifs, and quarter motifs.
  2. Motifs are joined together while working last round or row using a join-as-you-go technique. Review the assembly diagram for motif placement and to determine the correct sided join for each motif to its neighboring motif.
  3. When joining motifs, hold the motifs with wrong sides together with current motif in front and neighboring motif in back. Motifs are joined only through the chainspaces. To make joining spaces obvious, you may find it helpful to place markers in the chain-spaces across the edge(s) of the neighboring motifs.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Until I read the directions I was thinking this was a formed in a single piece. Not be leaps or bounds would I consider myself to be an advance crocheter but I know I am pretty good with motifs. Because I like this duster I think I will try at least to create a single motif before I commit to the whole duster.

Thank you for your tip to make a motif first.

This lacy duster looks very complicated and the skill level states that it is for the advanced crocheter. However, the piece is made with motifs so the most difficult part will be to put them together to form the duster and there is a wonderful illustration for that. Would anyone know if this item will stretch over time? It is made with bulky yarn.

What a pretty duster. I love the pattern, the length and even the color. I don't want it for out side. I want it as a house coat. It would be just right over pajamas or a night gown. Just a little something to class them up and keep the chill off.

Wow, thats a beautiful piece. I have so many outfits that this would work with. It has a hint of a boho look and feel to it. I would love to make one of these, but I think I would shorten it a bit to work with my shorts and short dresses and skirts. Probably will lighten it up a bit too and just regular cotton yarn.

Really appreciate your idea to lighten it up as it is probably pretty heavy.

We are not familiar with this term duster in South Africa so I was expecting a pattern for some sort of cloth for dusting furniture so I was very pleasantly surprised by this gorgeous pattern, lol! The Advanced rating is really going to challenge my crocheting ability but I am so looking forward to giving it a go because it is going to be lovely.

Try as I may I can not get the gauge right for this ?? I have gone from 6.5mm needle to a 5mm and still the motif is too big ?? any ideas ??

Try a different yarn or check to see if your yarn is bulkier than this one, manufacturers differ in their "bulky" weights estimates, this type specified is a smaller bulky than perse a Lion Brand "bulky" which is a lot thicker in comparison. Just go with your gut as well I will use a double strand of a worsted weight from red heart, that is the equivalent of their idea of their "bulky" yarns.
