"Carefree is a fun and popular crochet afghan pattern. Using Scheepjes Catona - a fingering weight cotton yarn, I made the sample piece in about a week. The motif has very intuitive repeats, for a large but quick hexagon. Of course, the half hexagon motif and the triangle gap filler to straighten the sides are all included, so your blanket will come out a rectangle. Also included is the Cherry Blossom Edging, a sweet little border that I wrote specially for this blanket. I hope you enjoy the pattern as much as I enjoyed creating it!"
