You will be making one large panel and two smaller side panels. I love the milk chocolate color! How convenient that the entire pattern is above?! I haven't crocheted with thread in decades, honestly. I tend to crochet just a little looser, so working with thread is a little challenging for me because it requires a tighter hand for the beautiful pattern to emerge properly.

I like to make it, only it is easier with a diagram of the pattern. Is that also available? I would appreciate it very much.
