Rating it 4 for the color combination which I find it drab but finally 5 for the free pattern which is found just right on this page. Thanks for the free pattern which is clearly presented together with a photo of a crocheted pansy flower. I always rate 5 for clear patterns for what's the use of the beautiful photo when crocheters have difficultly following the pattern. Thanks again.

I haven't tried this pattern yet but getting excited about starting it. I think it's very pretty.

Photo is too small on the Pansy Afghan. You can't see the flower or pattern decently
