Simply Sophisticated Scarlet Crochet Throw
"This simply sophisticated scarlet crochet throw uses the double, single, and chain stitches to complete. Crochet this beautiful heirloom blanket for yourself or to give as a treasured gift. This blanket works up to look complicated; however, it is not as hard as you may think. The crochet stitches create a light and lacy and work up so intricately with such care. Even a light covering like this one will keep you warm. This crochet pattern combines the look of crochet shell stitches with the open look of a windowpane. While this was used for this Simply Sophisticated Scarlet Crochet Throw today, I think a bit of resizing would make this a lovely lacy crochet shawl. Actually, the cotton yarn makes this throw even lighter and when paired with the lace crochet stitches, it is light enough to wind up into a lovely circle.
