Pattern: Paton's Stained Glass Window
I've gotten several comments that this link isn't working, but it always works for me for some reason. If you can't get it to work, you can find instructions on YouTube HERE and another one HERE. I've also added a written rectangle granny pattern at the bottom of this post.
Yarn: Hobby Lobby ILTY (Less than 8 oz of each color).
Colors I Used Lightest to Darkest: Soft Pink (lightest), Pink, Old Rose, Dark Raspberry (I think...I don't have the label anymore), Aubergine (darkest). I abandoned some of the colors I used in the center round of colors so I didn't list those. They just didn't work.
Hook: Size H
Size: 38" x 52
Edging: Filigree Edging by The Garden Bell, R1: sc all around, R2: (sc, ch 5, sc, ch 7, sc, ch 5, sc) in same sc, ch 4, skip next 5 sts, repeat around.
Changes to Pattern: I only chained 47 to begin on this one because I knew I was making it smaller than I normally do.
I'm starting another one!
I'll give you a peek when I get a few rounds on it.
Note: This pattern is written so that you change colors every row. If you want it like the one I made, you'll have to refer to the picture to see how many rows I did of each color.
