What was your source for this crocheting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Diamond Medallion Valance Link to website or photo www.crochetbykathy.com/Decor1.html 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.
