Snow Queen Blanket
This Snow Queen Blanket is the perfect pattern to make for the cold winter months. It's made using bulky yarn, so not only is it warm and cozy to use, but it works up quickly, as well. The lacy shells of this crocheted afghan give it a light and delicate look despite the bulky yarn. You'll feel like a queen as you sit in your living room watching the snow fall.

Beautiful pattern. Thank you. For new crocheted that use chain to start projects I have found if I use a hook 2sizes larger to make chain it is far looser. If the initial rows is a single, hadnt, or dbl crochet I often do that first row with the larger hook also.

I like easy and a no beginning chain project to boot. This is one of those patterns that I would consider making more than once. The designer was nice enough to give the yardage to make this charming snow queen blanket in different sizes. I would never attempt white but I am sure I would love this in almost any color of the rainbow.

I have never crocheted a design with a no beginning chain. I am intrigued to say the least. The start of any project can be daunting and not having to count the first row of chains is a plus in my book to say the least. There is only one special stitch to this design and multiple sizes and the required yarn is provided in the pattern.

My first thought when I saw this is what a lovely christening blanket this would be. Its delicate, open texture is lacy enough for a girl, but not so feminine that it couldnt be used for a boy. I would work a plain border instead of the shells for a boy. And I would blow off using any kind of boucle yarn in favor of one of the ultra soft baby yarns. Love using this while I clear the drive way of snow.

I am so glad the designer added the way to make this blanket with a beginner chain. For me, the beginning chain is so much easier over the chainless. I will have to practice the chainless technique when I have more time after the holidays. I am always looking for a throw for my living room that looks fancy and intricate but is easy to do. This pattern fits the bill exactly.

This Snow Queen Blanket is probably one of the easiest projects to do as shown in the picture. Any one who is starting to crochet will be able to figure out how the stitch used here is done. A veteran crocheter can probably do this project in a lot of colors. Wow. That would be the day. Let's do this.

The pattern for this blanket can be find here http//stitcheryprojects.com/2012/09/08/no-beginnin == g-chain-lacy-shell-afghan/ . The original name of this blanket is No beginning Chain Lacy Shell Afghan so dont stress when you get there because it is the same as the Snow Queen Blanket.

What a beautiful pattern this Snow Queen Blanket is. I love the no chain pattern that is so easy and great for the bumpy yarns. This would make a great throw to add to my living room for the chilly nights or mornings. On my to do list for sure. The pattern is so well written and the pictures are great for anyone to crochet. Ice blue, or purple? What color should I choose? Looking forward to making this beautiful blanket.. Thank you for this free pattern.

The title changes when you click the link to the pattern, but the pictured afghan is the same. I think you'll find that it's the correct pattern. For those that prefer a starting chain, scroll down through the comments and the author gives instructions for starting with a chain in response to a question left by another crafter. For those working with homespun or other similar chunky/bulky textured yarn, you might appreciate not having to try and decipher a starting chain!

Great blanket, but wrong title.. when you click for the pattern, the title reads "No Beginning Chain Lacy Shell Afghan" not "Snow Queen Blanket" as shown on this page. Just thought I'd point that out.
