This is such a beautiful pattern and while I prefer to knit over crocheting there are times when I find a pattern like this and am so happy to get the chance to crochet. I used this yarn and a size D hook. Once it was finished it was kind of flimsy so I stiffened it using some watered down silver glitter glue. It came out so great and I love the glittery effect, it gets glitter all over everything it touches but that is also kind of awesome!!
