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

This really is a luscious blanket, and if you work it up in Red Heart Soft or a similarly textured yarn, its going to be super snuggly! Im glad that the designer provides the chain sequence (multiples of 9 plus 3) because I would prefer to work this up as a baby blanket instead of the full afghan. One nice thing about modern acrylic yarns is theres usually no dye lot to match if you run out and need to buy more.

I have completed the main part of the afghan and now working on the edging. I am having trouble with the border at the bottom, the (sc, ch 3, sc, ch 4 , sc, ch 3 sc ) in ch space below Fan shell -- it seems rather crowded together, does all this really go in that one little space immediately followed by the large shell? Can you clarify please. a picture would be helpful. I had no problem with the top and edge sides. thank you. Otherwise it was easy and turned out beautiful. I just need to get it done as the baby was just born. thank you!

This is beautiful! I wish I had seen this when I was looking for lace afghans. I am now making the Snow Bunny Afghan which I really like. It is very easy to work and makes a nice thick and pretty blanket but this is more the lacy look that I was wanting. Guess I am making two afghans!

Oh this Luscious Lace Crochet Blanket is gorgeous! The pattern is very well written and a easy 2 row repeat. The border shell is so sweet! I have saved this one and it is on my long list of to make.. I can see this in a light blue for my Grand son, who has been asking for a home made crocheted blanket.. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.
