I really struggle seeing the whole “And then do Rows X-Y again” --not the designers fault, I apparently fail at reading. Keep ending up with wrong number of stitches and so confused. Then I remember that reading is my friend…


Did not do the hem as written. After 3rd section of lace, went back to alternating rows until I ran out of purple yarn and then finished out the multi-colored yarn, which was about three more rows.

Used all but just under 2 yards for the multi-colored; used all but about 20 yards (probably less) for the purple.

More photographs after I block it, worried about the purple bleeding.

Neither yarn bled at all in cool water with Soak.

It’s lovely and off to live with my friend Scarlet
