    Hi, I love this pattern. I made it from cotton yarn and put on towels and it is ridiculously beautiful. Thanks so much.

  5. I made one from Red Heart Shimmer in red and it’s beautiful!

    I found two things I think may be errors. in round 1 I think that’s too many repeats as you only want to end up with four sets of three and four ch 2. In round three, I think you need to sl st through the ch 2 and the first 3 dc to begin the chain of 12. At least that’s what I did and it turned out okay.

  7. Thanks, this one looks easy enough for ME to try…

    I also had to modify round one. On round three, it says not to turn, but in order for it to look like the picture you have to turn it and then turn it back. Also, I worked the edging on the right side, using chain 2 instead of chain 3, and I also did not go between the triple crochets, rather worked in the stitch.

    I think the basic pattern is very attractive. Thanks for sharing. I’m not sure what to do with the one I made. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
