I am a throw addict! There, I have finally said it, lol. Seriously, though, can you really look at this design and not want to make it? For our color scheme the colors need a very slight change but, besides that minor alteration, this pattern is so appealing and very unusual too that I feel I must begin making it NOW! Our Southern Hemisphere summer is slowly coming to an end and this throw is going to add a lovely warmth to our family room in the coming months.

I made 2 of these blankets already for gifts. The first I took the weekend and just crocheted away. I made it (inner color out) with red, grey and black without the tassles. My grandson loves it! The other took me longer as I just worked on it when I got the chance. That one I did in a pale lavender, purple and orchid with tassles. Came out gorgeous! This afghan is so simple! Thank you. Have yarn for the next 5 afghans already purchased!

I've just pinned this afghan for future reference...definitely in my queue. So the colors involved here are peach, green and aran. It helps a lot that the pattern is just right in front of the page. Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful! I want to make one! #BestIdeaEver

Nice, made one years ago and gave as a gift.

If I use the print button, will it print just the pattern?? Or everything on the page, including all the ads, comments, etc?

Thought I was going to try another fast pattern and end up with a lot of hat yarn. WOW! I started on my vacation and finished within two weeks after returning to work. Everyone loves the colors and the pattern! Even my sister! Thank You!

is there a way to print or download this pattern? i really want to do this for my sister

I will rate this afghan when i make it. I am anxious to get started.
