Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I thought I've left a comment here because I've pinned this before and I probably just missed out on this another really light-weight afghan that is fine for spring and summer. The color is also appropriate for those seasons.

Why can't we copy your patterns? I use Print Friendly and Allfreecrochet patterns won't copy. Thank you for your help.

do you need to begain with a long chain?? If so how many do we start with???
