I am so NOT understanding row 2! Can anyone help?

This design is showing as an easy project but I beg to differ. There are four special stitches used in this design alone. Without any pictures this may be difficult for a beginner but worth it if you are really interested in making this luscious lace crochet blanket.

I never thought about building a collection of crochet projects based on color Zeemer. Thanks for that little tid-bit. I like this luscious lace crochet blanket but would never in a million years make it in a white color to be used at my house. However as a gift I would make this in a heartbeat.

This Luscious Lace Afghan is now included in my collection of off white afghans. I always find it a challenge to start an entirely new pattern. I can't wait to try and start this project.

I admit that I had to do a little chuckle when I first saw the picture for this afghan on your page. At first glance it made the chair look like a ghost chair. It is getting close to Halloween and I have seen a lot of decorations in stores lately LOL. It is a beautiful blanket. I would suggest working this up is a soft yarn of some type and not just regular acrylic which can be a little stiff and harsh.

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.
