Come to think of it. Gray/green/light coral combination. I wouldn't venture into this combo if I have to start it but the finished product looks great. The squares are also simple therefore faster top make. Will also look great in other combinations you fancy.

Looks like a fairly easy blanket. Would have liked a photo though just to get an idea of how it will look. Over all it can be varied with color and design. It is a great stash buster. Thank you for the pattern and idea.

Tried pattern with single strand of yarn and I hook. Makes a beautiful, smaller square. Pattern was easy to follow, especially when looking at it. Think will use for baby blanket. You can make with single, double or bulky yarn. Just use size hook for yarn you use. If you're a beginner, try the hook size recommended on the yarn label and adjust up or down one size if your material is too tight (go up) or too loose (go down a size ).

Does it really need to be worked with double strands?

Really easy stunning patern

it looks very beautiful better try it out..:)

I love this afghan! I will crochet it later, after my currant projects are done. I will be using the same colour scheme as well
