I have not made it yet but the instructions look simple. I just love all the colors. This is a great stash buster and will go with any decor. I made something similar for my bedroom last year and it is so warm and washes so well. A win-win. This is a different pattern and will look great. Thank you.

Wow, it is probably the 12 different colors that make this such a beautiful and striking afghan! Using so many colors means it can easily be changed to suit any room at all. Even if you halved the number of colors it would still fit easily into any room in a home. Our tastes are quite eclectic so I am really tempted to go the whole hog with the colors, hopefully my PC will allow me to upload a photo when it is finished!

This is a very interesting crochet pattern, one I have never done before but i'm so interested in trying. There is a lot of yarn called for in this Hooked on Color Afghan, but I'm sure it will be worth the price. The pattern is very well written and a easy to read and follow. I'm looking forward to giving this one a try and hope it comes out like the picture. I'm not a big fan for fringe on my work because of the way it looks after washing, but it may look fine on this afghan. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

I was pleasantly surprised to see that this is an "Apache Tears" pattern. Check out the Groovy-Ghan pattern on this site by Wink. This is such a cool stitch pattern!!!

Afghan is very colorful. Thankful that the pattern is just right on the same page, crocheters don't have to go to a link. I will pin this afghan for future reference. I wish I could make this afghan sooner.

I have been looking for this pattern for YEARS! My mother made an afghan like this many years ago and promptly lost the pattern and could never remember how to make it. I have always wanted one of my own. THANK YOU so much!!! I can hardly wait to finish a few of my UFOs so I can get started on this one!!
