I know the title of this afghan has the word "fall" but I can see this easily crocheted in other color combination for each of the other three seasons. I have so many afghan projects now I don't even know which one to start with. With this one being made with motifs, this one gets bumped to the top as I can bring this one with me.

Wow. The colors are typical of the fall season and they also symbolize a bountiful harvest. The colors used here are can be seen in leaves during the fall season when they all start to turn into the same vibrant colors. It helps a lot that the pattern is just right in front of the page.
