Damask Afghan

Inspired by the beautiful damask drapes in my mom’s home, I designed this lacy afghan with join-as-you-go motifs coupled with a solid stitch border, as that is really my style--a little something lacy with a solid edge to it. But the yarn is the star here; the yak and bamboo combination is amazingly soft and a dream to crochet.
