I made one of this pattern yesterday in a printed cotton and it is beautiful. This pattern will become one of my new favorites. Thanks to Carol Ballard for her great designs
Another nice cloth. I had never done the hdc, sl st sequence and I really like the look of it. Only problem I had was not being able to figure out how to do 2 sl st in one stitch, so I just did one and it looked fine.
