The Darling Dot Crochet Afghan is very neat. The lines and curves are clearly defined and the blue and turqouise circles are neatly arranged. This is a welcome design for me as I have seen more of the granny squares, stripes and ripple stitches in the last few months. Thanks for the free pattern which has been presented to crocheters right on the same page.
