Wow oh wow this Patchwork Zoodiacs Crochet Afghan is beautiful. I have not yet conquered the corner to corner thing. I never get a even square for some reason? With all the hard stitches I can do, this one leaves me making a mess. After reading this written pattern and watching the video, I'm going to give it a try again. Fingers crossed that I can make a nice square with a animal in it, I just need to do it step by step and hope and a prayer. I think any mother to be would love this blanket! I thank you for sharing this free crochet pattern with video how to..

This is just too cute. I love all the animals. And there is a great way to adorn the nursery wall by hanging it as a wall hanging. If you don't want to do that, how about after its done, if you make a couple of the animals separately and frame them to put on the wall? I have done that and it was greatly received.
