This is very pretty. The directions are very well written and easy to understand. It's a simple pattern using basic stitches. I think any one can follow along and make it. I too would either change the color of the roses or add less. Just one at the top would be plenty.

Upon completion of this beautiful summer lace crochet wrap pattern, I am sure the owner will be looking for a reason to bring it out. The design is stunning and sure to garnish a lot of attention and compliments. No matter the color selection I am sure this wrap will get a lot of wear.

This is a beautiful shade of blue. Not overly impressed with the color used for the roses though. Definitely think that they need a brighter color to match the blue of the wrap. This appears to be a very simple pattern for the scarf and very easy to understand.

Hi coopereli, We transferred a lot of our older patterns to a newer template, and so a lot of our older patterns had images that are too small for this template. We're in the process of finding and replacing these images so please be patient with us! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

Go to Red heart and search for Rose Parade Wrap to find the original free pattern. It's a PDF and will print very nicely.

Hi, Sherry. Try highlighting the pattern first, and then when you click Print and the box appears, click "Selection" instead of "All" under Print Range. This will allow only the highlighted text to print. Alternatively, you can always copy and paste the pattern into a Word document and print that way. Hope this helps! --Editors of AllFreeCrochet

If you go to the top where the big blue "P" is and click on that, one of the selections is "Print". Click on that and it should print perfectly. I just did that and it printed up wonderfully.
