I would like to know how to make this larger, as I am a busty gal. Anyone have suggestions? I know a larger hook would help, but think I would need to add stitches. Thanks for any suggestions.

This is lovely but the pattern is confusing to me.

I am trying to crochet this but I think row 3---chain 3 and then sc ,, should be ch3 and then double crochet so that it will make a square shaped space. Has anyone else had this problem?

I WOULD LIKE TO SEE RED HEART RATE CROCHET PATTERNS, easy to difficult. I would like to read what part is started first and what is crocheted last. THANK YOU. WILL THIS MESSAGE GET BACK TO RED HEART?

This pattern is so elegant--I was impressed with my own work! I made it for my mother for Christmas, and I know she'll love it. I'm relatively new to crocheting, but this was much quicker than a triangular shawl I knitted. I finished the pattern in about 5 days (working mostly in evenings) used Caron "autumn red", and one size larger hook than recommended to make the capelet slighty larger, and was very very pleased with the results. Thank you for your site--I've used it for almost all of my Christmas gifts. I'm a big fan!

I just printed this pattern and it took 4 pages what a waste of paper. I didn't need the "share this on" part or the comments. Could you please change your format for printing. Thank you.

This starts at the neck and goes down. Rows 32-36 are for the clusters at the bottom. Debi, take your time and read the instructions three times before you get started. The first time gives you the gist of it, the second time you start to comprehend it and the third time you really understand it. D

I haven't tried to make this yest but reading you comments and reading the pattern I would say you end at the lower edge since the last few rows are done in clusters...I am not an avid crocheter but am anxious to try this pattern...I am alittle afraid to begin due to the two comment from people who are good at crocheting...YIKES!
