    Im a new subscriber, I love the patterns BUT….. it would be very nice and helpful if the weight of the yarn were included with the pattern otherwise you have to look up the yarn used to see what weight it is.

      I agree!! It isn’t that I don’t want to use the yarn you suggest, it is tthat I possibly have yarn in my stash that would work.

    The first row after the foundation looks like it is different than the way row 1 is written. Thank you for your help to decipher! TJ

    I agree, there looks to be a problem with the way row 1 is written. It looks like row 1 as written us actually row 2. Can someone clarify this please

    The only beach I’ve ever been to is Virginia Beach. I use to live there. But now live in the Appalachian mountains of southwest Virginia. No beaches here but plenty of lakes, rivers and waterfalls. Thanks for the pattern. It’s beautiful

  • My favorite beach is 7 mile beach on Grand Cayman. But seeing as I will probably never get to go back there again I also really enjoyed Destin beach in Florida too and it’s a little more feasible for me to go back there!

    I don’t have a favorite beach, since I have gone to very few beaches. Love this pattern! I have done one other that works off both sides of the beginning chain. I worked up so fast. Will have to try tho one as soon as I finish all my other projects. Thanks for the pattern!

  • I’m more of a mountains girl than a beachy one. But I do enjoy seeing the ocean from time to time, and being on the shore of any lake is very calming and a welcome diversion from daily life. If I could live in a lakeshore house I’d be a happy camper.
