I got this pattern from Sarah London's wonderful crochet blog. She has a free tutorial for it. I started making it about 9 months ago and was excited that I could manage something which looked so complicated as I am relatively new to crochet. I just finished it this week and have already given it away to a great friend who just celebrated her 50th birthday! She was delighted.
It is really soft and heavy and also reversible, as both sides of the pattern are equally charming.
