Another Christmas afghan masterpiece!! So beautiful with matching pillow cover. I can imagine this pair being sold just like an ordinary comforter and pillowcase set. I wish there was that crochet set for sale in every department store.

Have lots of WIP's so cannot justify starting a new project right now. Having lots of scraps, I just had to try a square. It turned out really nice (my ugly colors but nice design). Changing colours is a bit tricky to start with but is explained on the Yarnspirations youtube channel. A little challenging but well worth the effort.

Love this blue motif blanket ,but I'm a beginner,so can you help me ,do you have a clear picture of the motif pattern?thank you

Love the pattern I am in no way a beginner but I can't figure out how to change from one color to another using DC! You did not explain that in the instructions!

FOR MANY MORE TO ASK THIS OUT THERE You change color by pulling new color through the last 2 loops of a double crochet and dropping old color.
