Skill Level

Super easy! This is one of those projects where you let the yarn do the work for you. It’s a combination of fabulous yarn and a crazy easy stitch pattern.

Crochet Pattern Instructions

Row 1: Ch 54 (62), sc in second ch from hook, *ch 3, sk 3 ch, sc in next ch, rep from * across, turn: 13 (15) ch-3 sps.

Row 2: Ch 1, sc in first sc, *ch 3, sk ch-3 sp, sc in next sc, rep from * across, turn: 13 (15) ch-3 sps.

Rows 3-118 (130): Rep row 2, fasten off leaving an 18″ tail after final row.

At fasten off, measure down the side of the rows to 12″ (14″). With yarn needle, seam the bottom of row 1 to the marked length of the 12″ (14″) section along sides of rows.

Weave in ends carefully.

Confession: I didn’t actually seam this project because I try to avoid seaming when I can. If you hate seaming as much as I do, try this way instead. It makes a seam with a bit of lace, which is just fine since the entire project is made of lace.


At the point of seaming, join yarn with sl st, *ch 1, sl st to other side, ch 1, sl st to other side, rep from * across position of seam.
