I think this pattern is great! It reminds me of a knit pillow pattern knit with three different strands, so I think they could be really pretty put together! Gift idea!

I loved this pattern! It was so easy and went so fast. I used orange, black, and white yarn, and it looks lovely! I am so pleased.

I love the pink, gold and white colors used in this blanket. It was done by holding the three strands together while crocheting. Clever idea. I would like to do this as baby blankets are my current projects. Here's the link to the pattern http// == -easy-baby-afghan.html.
