  1. Amanda, did you finish with yours yet? Hoping you can figure this out for us. I just found it so haven’t started it yet. Oct 14,2012 Thank you for your help so far.

    OK… posted but did not sign in…. don’t know if previous post will show up… I’m working the pattern right now and here are some answers that I’ve found so far…. the “10″ at the end of round 1….ignore it (apparently a misprint)…. round 2 ….. to sl st to center of 1st loop you have to sl st in each chain until you get to the top (5sl)…. round 4 says 1sc; ch12; 1so in same place as former st… type o should be 1sc in same place as former st. I’m starting round 5. Also noticed in other comments about how after round 4 it looked more like a circle and not a square…. most patterns will provide proper stitching in later rounds to convert the circle into a square. Will keep you posted on how it goes from here….

  4. I love the look and I’m actually pretty good at figuring these out, but the transition from round 1 to round 2 and then round 2 to round three are not clear. If you chain 10 at the end of round one, Exactly where does it connect at the end of round two. I really would like to make this, but cannot figure this out. Anyone who has completed this successfully, please contact me at suz.labombard@comcast.net. Thank you so much!

  5. Same question as the others: what does the ’10′ mean between rounds 1 & 2. Although this could be made in any yarn once gauge was established, a list of materials and finished size would be helpful. I hope to get a early response as I’ve chosen cushions as my Christmas gifts this year and this pattern certainly appears to be THE ONE! (March 22, 2012) Thank you. I’ll give the pattern a 3* in spite of not really knowing how it will turn out.

  6. Pattern worked great as written. Very pretty results. Thanks!

  7. I have the same question as others… what does that “10″ mean? And how do you perform the slip stitch to the center of the loop in rnd 2? Any help would be much appreciated. thanks.

  8. I TRIED TO FOLLOW THE PATTERN AT THE END OF ROUND 10 I HAVE WAY TO MUCH SPACE IN BETWEEN THE SET OF LOOPS 1 AND 4 SO ENDS UP AS A CIRCLE INSTEAD OF A SQUARE , SO THE PATTERN IS WRONG .

  9. no answer to the other 2 people that asked the same question, 10? How do you get the slip stich from the ring all the way up to the center of the chain 10?

  10. It is beautiful. I have been looking for the Irish Lace patterns.Do you have more.

  11. Why has this got no materials listed in the materials box? Please indicate materials used.

  12. It is beauiful so please put out the materials used

  13. If you’ve made this could you tell me what materials you used? Thanks

  14. And in the 1st Rd, the las “10″..means ch10?

  15. Please, can you explain me how is “sl st to center of 1st loop”..in the 2nd rd. Thanxs

  16. FAbulous

  17. wow…hard.

    Amazingly beautiful though!
