This is a very pretty pattern and I would guess a confident beginner could master it. After row one you repeat rows 2-7 until you achieve the length desired.
As I get older it is harder for me to concentrate so I did have to print out this pattern and I used a large sticky note to move with each row.
I decided to use 3 colors and crocheted 2 repeats of the pattern before switching the color. I switched colors on a row 7.
The instructions for this pattern are well done and sizes are given for extra small to extra large which is a great plus.
