Where do I find out how to read the instructions - I've figured out dc (double chain) and some of the others but is there a reference doc? Nevermind - found it on Google - DUH.

This is one of the easiest and the prettiest aftgans I have done. It was easy as you only had to make one block at a time. I put a ruffly edging on it.....and it is just a delicate looking aftgan.

How do you sew them together. Doesn't show to sew the Motifs together. I love to make this.

I think this is such a soft and light looking afghan. It does not appear to be heavy and I can see the subtle colors fitting in anywhere in the house. Lovely pattern.


This is so pretty. I'd like to make one for each of my three children in different colors to match their personalities. Thanks for posting.


The diagram is just showing you the placement of the motifs. It doesn't show you how the sew them together. Good point. They should show how to attach each motif.


Check out the Lilly website - pattern is free and has diagram for color placement.


Where is the diagram showing how to crochet motifs together?
