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.
