I was guessing to see a water design and true enough, it is a water design. The waves design in blue, brown and white resembles the water in the pond. Brown waves because sometimes the water in pond gets dirty because of the mud and grime. I can imagine various living things that make the pond their habitat making the pond a very rich source of life. Design wise, the color combination is uniquely outstanding! This Across the Pond Crochet Pattern truly depicts life in the pond. Cheers!

Wow this Across the Pond Crochet Pattern is sweet! I was shocked to read the comments below after I read the pattern. I am guessing this pattern was re-written to fix the problems and I can see this one coming together very nicely! Even though I have not tried this one yet, I do wonder how big of a whole the fan will make? I'll have to make a swatch sample square and check it out. Other then that I'm thinking this will make a very nice afghan. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

Appropriate for a boy's room, very masculine. I want to make this but later. I have a bias for vibrant colored afghans so first in the queue are those bright colored ones. Thanks for having the pattern right in front of the page.

This makes for a sweet and snuggly blanket. I gave it four stars because of a re-occurring error. When you start creating row 4 the first time, there isn't a problem with the V stitches. When you proceed from row 19 to row 4 as the pattern says, you can't follow the pattern because it says to put a Vstitch in the chain 1 space of the previous rows Vstitch. The only way to keep the pattern consistent is to go from row 19 to row 3 and follow the pattern from there. Other than that, it's very cute!

The fan stitch is 9 double crochet stitches in the same stitch. It's in the special stitches section. I almost missed it too!
