What was your source for this crocheting project?
Online Photo or Website
Name of website or photo Diamond Medallion Valance
What materials did you use? Cotton crochet thread, size 10, in 350 yd. (320 m) balls - light brown (4 balls); size 7 (1.65 mm) crochet hook; and a 5/8" diameter curtain rod. The optional tassels are created with embroidery floss attached with 6 mm jump rings.
What are you most proud of? I really like the way this turned out using a modified shell to create the filled square look of filet crochet.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a great project for the intermediate crocheter. In addition to detailed instructions, a graph is also provided for reference. The valance is worked from the top down. The rod pocket is also incorporated into the design. The finished size is 63" wide x 17" long from the rod pocket (not including tassels). Instructions are included to increase the width in 9" increments. This pattern is available for $3.50 and is written in U.S. terms.
