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

This is a lovey afghan. I understand the inspiration but we have some beautiful farm lands here in America also. This really turned out nice and I am glad the designer shared this project.

Often times it is not the design itself that makes the finished crochet project but the colors selected by the designer. This is one of those times when the colors makes the design. I am in awe of how some people get their inspiration. Thanks for the beautiful free pattern.

How can I change this to make it about 36" square?

What a lovely design. I've been looking for a size 4 yarn design to use a bunch of fall colored yarn I bought on clearance. This is just perfect. I'm not entirely sure about the light blue color in the design. It does stand out but I think I will use another complimentary color. That's why I love to see other people's work I am so inspired! I love to take a pattern and make it more my own by changing it in some way.

This is so lovely. It's amazing to know the inspiration behind the design-it's the Swedish countryside with blues skies, red barns, green rolling hills, and white sheep. Thanks for the pattern placed up front.

love this and would like to make it, but what is a dcfp? no definitions I can see! Could not find this abbreviation on any website either... Thanks!
