From the pattern: Soft, cream-colored yarn gives this beauty of an afghan its timeless appeal. The body works up quickly in an old-fashioned herringbone pattern, while the lacy edging adds a touch of Victorian style.
This one in Portuguese - my translation left something to be desired, but the pictures are fairly self explanatory. Direct link to pictorial ~ crochet petal edging. Beautiful, but wouldn't want to have to cover a vast area with this stitch.
