I thought that this was named after the painter Monet and I was right. The work has been patterned after the works of the famous painter. You may use a similar multicolored yarn in a color of your choice.

Inspired by Monet, I really love the watercolor coloring on this afghan. So very pretty. Then it is brought together with the solid white fillet-type lacing stitches that are more open weave and airy. This would great in my bedroom and the subdued tones have a very calming effect.

I am finding it hard to believe that this is made with only the Red Heart Water Lily yarn. The designer states any color can be used because the texture of the stitches make it special. I disagree. I know if I select a single color I will never get the same impressionist painting design as when using the water lily yarn. Perhaps if I selected a variegated yarn, I may achieve similar results.

Art has never been one of those things that I gravitated to but this is a piece of art for sure.

This is drop dead gorgeous! The impressionists are my favorite painters and that was first idea of this afghan. It reminded me right away of a painting. I think it's beautiful! I unfortunately have a ways to go before I reach the intermediate level in crochet but this will definitely give me something to look forward to doing down the road.

I agree with other postings. You should not be required to give out personal information just to acquire a free pattern. It's either to sell your info to advertisers or to use it themselves. I would rather not do that so as pretty as this is, it isn't pretty enough to get me more junk mail then I already do.

Hi mulberrygal, You don't need to give any information - just click the link above and scroll down just a bit and you'll see the entire pattern all written out. Thanks! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

I see that he gave us the pattern on his website through the link above. I don't understand why you would need to give your personal information to him. The colorway is amazingly beautiful. Much more beautiful than it appears in the photos. This has to be the Red Heart Soft yarn for sure. I don't think they make that one anymore. It was replaced with another soft type yarn. Probably won't be able to find the same color Waterlily.

To much personal information wanted.I don't think it's worth the bother,there are other,nicer patterns with no information needed to be provided

Can't figure out how to upload the photo. Sorry. Apparently I'm not as savvy as I think I am.

I made this pattern for a dear friend who loved it so much, she put it on her couch where she could see it instead of using it! This is, unfortunately, not the finished piece - only one panel of four. I used 'Monet' by Red Heart instead and it came out beautifully. One note - be sure to count the chained loops in white on each to make sure each side has the same number or you'll be ripping out work to make it right (personal experience talking here ) )

wants to much info for a free pattern. address? phone number? NO WAY

I agree. Not giving all my personal info for a supposedly "free" pattern. Should be taken off site

I found the yarn, just have to buy it. The crochet guy "was giving" this pattern free. I gave my address, but never received it?

Where do I find Red Heart water lily yarn?

If you are making 13 squares, how does that come out even? 12 squares make it 3 across and 4 down. What am I missing? Thanks Linda

Directions say to make 12 squares - maybe you saw the part where it says the squares are 13 inches?

I am basically a beginner and made this in about 10 days! I definitely made a few mistakes, though. You HAVE to make sure that every square has the same number of stitches in the single crochet around each one. I had 47 on 2 sides and 34 on the other 2 sides. If you don't get them all the same, you'll definitely have trouble with the lattice!!! Once I corrected that, it came out AMAZING!!! The lattice in the pattern sounded a bit overwhelming, but once you get started, it's pretty simple! I'm making another one now using the Red Heart With Love AUTUMN and still using white for the lattice! The first one with the 12 squares isn't quite long enough, so I'm making this one with 15 (5x3) and it'll be perfect! I'll probably make another one for my sister when I finish that one.

That may sound wonky above. What I meant about the stitches is that each "square" was actually rectangular. Every one had 34 rows and 47 stitches in each row. So when you're doing your single crochet around with the white, 2 sides of every square should have 34 stitches and the other 2 sides of every square should have 47 stitches (or whatever number of stitches/rows you used in yours)

I have the pattern now and can't wait to make this. The one thing I can't find is how many skeins are needed. I already have several skeins of Water Lily in my stash but need to know how many more before I start. It's so soft and a joy to work with. Can anyone help with a skein or yardage count?

He gives this info at the start of the directions: one 6 oz skein for each square (it's important not to start a new skein in the middle of the square because of the patterning of the colors) And two 8 oz skeins of white for the joining and the border. Hope that helps.

I loved this the first time I saw it and I'm still in love. I wanted to make it in the yarn suggested and finally found it. Then I couldn't locate the pattern again. All of this over a 6 year period...And here I am with the pattern and the yarn just two miles away waiting for me and if they are out I'll order it online. I am a very happy crocheter. Thank you Crochet Dude for creating a timeless work for us to make and enjoy

I am making the Monet, and it is fabulous! Many thanks to Drew for sharing

Hi 121253, I tried the project and had no problem bringing it up. Maybe the server was down for a while. You should be able to bring it up without a problem now. Thanks! -Editors of AllFreeCrochet

Hi mheverin 3240001, Sorry for your trouble, the pattern you are looking for as been taken down by the designer. We have contacted them and will see what we can do about getting it back up soon. Thanks! -Editors of AllFreeCrochet

some one help: received email about the framed church window 6 in square afghan but when i clicked on the highlighted title could not be found what am i missing...

The "turn" is implied by the instructions to chain one.

Since this does not appear to be a granny square, should there be an instruction to "turn" at the end of each row??
