This is a beautiful afghan. It's has the Christmas look along with an Amish twist. I love the matching pillow. Imagine this afghan being used as a wall hanging above a sofa with the matching pillow beneath! It would make a spectacular Christmas decoration. Thank you so much for sharing this great idea!

This Christmas Star Throw and Pillow pattern is beautiful! I am hoping I can create one as beautiful. After reading the written pattern that is right here on the front page, I'm hoping I can follow the chart and written directions. I'll make one and if it is to hard, I'll just make a pillow but if it is simple enough to follow, I'll make the throw too. Wish me luck! Thank you so much for this beautiful crochet pattern.
