Inspired by the solid color throws seen in current home decor magazines, this beautiful lace throw is perfect for any decorating style.
I love when I make up a stitch pattern and it works this beautifully!
Making beautiful crochet lace is a wonderful way to spend your evenings. This is included in my series, Romantic Lace Throws.

In stitch pattern, 12 sts for 8 rows measures 4″
This project is designed (and is shown in photos and measurement) as side-to-side rather than bottom to top. I preferred the look of side-to-side on this one. You may choose whichever you prefer, of course.
Cross: Sk 1 st, dc in next st, working behind dc just worked, dc in skipped st.
Puff: Yo, insert hook in st indicated, yo, pull lp through, [yo, insert hook in same st, yo, pull lp through] twice, yo, pull through 7 lps on hook.
