Project is made in one piece.
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.
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.
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 PDFs of my patterns so you would get something in return. I'm steadily working on adding PDFs to all my patterns and I've also made this compilation available at a discounted price. You can, of course, view, print, paste to a word processor, convert to PDF, 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!
