What are you most proud of? An unusual feature is that the panels are worked in the opposite direction of the panel to which they are joined, thus creating vertical symmetry of the tear-drop pendant motifs across the six adjoining panels.

It's so beautiful i love it. I'm thinking of making one for a dear friend of mine her birthday is coming up but I don't think I'll be able to understand the pattern well. I'm more of a visual learner than reading a pattern. I still couldn't see the difference when it comes to dc to hdc it looks the same to me. But I really would love to make this. Thank you for sharing.
