Thanks for this free pattern that is so organized, clearly presented and complete with a photo.

There's only one person to whom this very beautiful afghan goes to - my only granddaughter who's 41/2 years old now. She is very special so she deserves a very special present maybe on her next birthday or when she becomes 7 years old. Thanks for this free pattern.
