I like this Brown and Gray Laphan, the colors are very calming and goes well together. After reading the written pattern and answering the second question below, I would crochet it the back loop only on the first row, like it is written, Then in both top looks on the rest of the rows. I'm thinking that sense this has a border, why not carry the last color up to make for less weaving in ends?. I'm going to save this one and put it on my to do list along with a lot more. I am always finding great patterns here on all free crochet. Thank you so much for this free crochet pattern.

This looks simple to make. The light brown/light blue/white combination gives a calming effect on the nerves after a long day's work.

Except for the edging, do you always work in only the back loop of each stitch or is that for only row 1?

I made this for our local charity group. It will go to our local hospice. It is quick and easy! It not only works as a lapghan but it also is the right size for a baby blanket! So when the family gets the blanket, they can give it as a memorial to even the little ones. I will definitely use this pattern again.
