This has been easy with the instructions and picture. I have been so excited about this. It did take reading, and having the picture to get it started, but after that, it's just the same 8 rows.
This is a beautiful pattern but I was unable to use it right now. Got lost in the directions and decided to go with a simpler pattern. I tried following the YouTube vid I found but had difficulty with that. I think my yarn (ICE) wasn’t suitable for this pattern. I’ll try it again with the yarn recommended in the instructions but it is a difficult pattern for me.
The reviews are mixed on this Wrap Me In Diamonds crochet pattern- I want to check out the free pattern before purchasing- I can’t find the link to the free pattern. Is it still available?
I did not purchase this pattern.
I found the pattern somewhat complicated and not very clear (i am an experienced knitter/crochetier). I was happy to find the video tutorial from "Collaboration" but that only made things worse. First, for video demonstration purposes, it's probably better to use a light color not a marled dark color and the tutor spoke too quickly so her verbal explanation ran ahead of her actual stitch making -- which only made things more confusing. I love the patter and I haven't totally given up but it's not on my top 10 list.
