Gauge

You want a nice lace with a nice drape. The project starts at the top center and grows out, so trying to work to a particular gauge isn’t crucial.

NOTE: IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THIS ONE, IT IS A COMBINATION OF TWO OF MY PATTERNS. YOU CAN FIND MORE INFORMATION HERE.

Note

Project is made from the point with increasing on each row. It is a standard triangle shape. It can be made in any yarn type or weight, with appropriate hook. Work any number of rows for the size desired.

A gradient yarn cake is used which means that the color changes you see are made with the yarn itself. If you prefer to substitute yarn, you can use whatever color(s) you like and change colors as you desire, or alternatively, use one solid color throughout.

Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDF's of my patterns. You can, of course, view, print ,paste to a word processor, convert to PDF's, etc, on your own. This is just an extra feature so that people help out if they want. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
