You certainly may! This is my very own pattern, on my blog and published in Patternfish, Ravelry and Etsy!

Valentine Design Pattern

I used size 1(US) 2.25mm for this one and Empress Crochet Cotton, took 1200 yards or 3 balls.

I need to add that the pattern can be done with any size needle and any size/type fiber.

It's adjustable for the size you need!

Thanks.... I started this back in August after Nobones sent me a ball of the Empress Crochet cotton. After I started, decided to make it larger and ordered 2 more balls from Texere in UK, which took about 3 weeks to deliver. In the middle of it, decided to design and produce the pattern into a full version, suitable for a tablecloth, shawl or blanket. A lady in Texas kindly test knitted it into a shawl for me... hers only took about 2 weeks to do.
