I have been looking for a beautiful pattern like this to make baby blankets to give to the woman's shelter in my area. I have colletcted a lot of different yarn and this is the perfect pattern to use it. Quick and easy! Thank you for the free pattern.

Just one glance and I know I can use this design to make an infinity scarf, a cowl, an afghan or a baby blanket. I can't wait to make to do this design.

It is most frustrating when one cannot locate the headlined project on a site! Where can I find this afghan? I have done a search on the site directed to, but was just given more places to look. It shouldn't be that hard or time consuming!

After clicking on the above link to get to the pattern page, I scrolled down and found the correct pattern nearly at the very bottom. I agree though that it would be nice if it directed you straight to the pattern you're looking for!
