That's beautiful. What level of skill would you need to attempt this? I'm a novice (I've practiced the stiches, but have no idea how to read instructions and have never made anything useful - yet. My mom is coming to visit for the holidays (she crochets) and I'm looking for a project. Should I bookmark this and start with something else?

Hi There Jeanette,
I would say that this pattern is at least intermediate and not really suitable for a beginner. If your Mom is going to be visiting perhaps she could assess if she thinks it would be suitable for you. Thanks for your question and best wishes :-)

I like the look of this. Can you please tell me how you joined it up and the extra couple rows at the bottom to finished it off?
I have printed off some of your beautiful patterns. I teach knitting and crochet to beginners (although some of them have a great deal of skill) and I think some of them would love your designs too.
Looking forward to hearing from you. :)

I tried printing the instructions, but the paper came out blank. How were you able to print the picture, and instructions Deanne? :^)
