Pattern Description from Interweave Online Store: “A rich crimson afghan in a flowing, elegant pattern is the kind of gift you reserve for someone very special. This throw is named after the Canterbury Cathedral in England, since the lace pattern she used is called cathedral lace. The project is designed to be a quick one, but one that still requires care and thought. Large needles help speed things along, while the lace repeat takes a little more time. We all know someone who deserves such a luxurious gift … so get knitting today!”
