This is an original pattern. Materials used were Aunt Lydia's Classic No. 10 Thread and a size 6 Steel cCrochet Hook. Approximately 50 inche in diameter. I used two 1,000 yd balls and part of another. The 2,730 yd ball should be enough. Not responsible for differences in individual working styles. The pattern will be sent to your email on receipt of payment. It is in Microsof Word Format.
