Love the colors and would like to make this, but the colors rouge, deep straw, and cameo are discontinued. Any appropriate substitutions? Thanks!

Hi there! I just did a little research on Yarnspirations for Bernat Super Value yarn, and I think the following colors would work as substitutions for rouge, deep straw, and cameo. Rouge Cheery Red or Redwood Heather Deep Straw Topaz, Dark Heather, or Taupe Heather Cameo Forest Green or Deep Sea Green I think it'll depend on how bright or subdued you want your blanket to be. Of course, you can always hook this pattern in completely different colors if you like! But hopefully these suggestions will help you stay within this color palette if you so choose. Thanks for your question! Let us know how it goes! )

Hi, I have completed row 2 and I'm about to start row 3, but realized that row 2 will not work for row 3 at the peak (V-st in next ch-1 sp. (1 dc. Ch 1) 3 times. 1 dc all in next ch-1 sp. V-st in next ch-1 sp.), as there are now 5 single chain areas instead of the 3 that round 2 creates. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

This afghan is very pleasant to the eyes with its earth color motif. Thanks for the pattern that is found on the front page.

This is a beautifully colorful Lazy Day Ripple Pattern. Just like Jeemer said below the colors remind me of the Michigan fall trees. The pattern is every well written and looks so easy to do. This is on my to do list with many more. I know that I will not do the Fringe part of the pattern. I don't know how anyone else feels about fringe, but it looks great until it's washed. I just leave that out of any crochet pattern because of that reason. Thank-you so much for this free crochet pattern.

Another afghan with irresistible color combo. Very appopriate for fall. Reminds me of the falling maple leaves during the fall season. It helps that the pattern is just right in front.
