Hey craftsters!

This is the first large crochet project that I have completed to date. It is a gift for my mother that I have been working on f o r e v e r. It's not that the lace pattern was difficult or anything frankly it has more to do with the fact that my attention span is nil. Anyway right now I'm working on a queen size bedspread in heather sage using the same pattern. Since the weave is so open I figured it would not work well as my everyday coverlet but I thought in the guest bedroom it would look pretty with contrasting sheets/blanket underneath.

Yarn: TLC Heathers in Mulberry
Kitten: Milo

That is beautiful! I especially like the scallop edges. Where did you get the pattern for it?

The "pattern" comes from Donna Kooler's Encyclopedia of Crochet, which I highly recommend, and it is called picot fan. The instructions state to chain a multiple of 12 stitches + 1 for my mother's afghan I chained 193.

The edging is as follows-

To Begin: Join yarn at the corner of piece. Ch 1, sc around the entire edge, sl st in ch-1. Turn. Ch 1, sc around entire edge, sl st in tch.
Row 1: Ch 2 or 3 (counts as first dc), *ch 2, sk 2 sc, dc in next sc, repeat from* across.
Row 2: Turn. Ch 2 or 3 (counts as first dc), 8 dc in same st as ch 2 (or 3) just made, *sk ch-2, sk dc, sk ch-2, 9 dc in next dc, repeat from* to end of row, sl st in 2nd (or 3rd) tch.
