I like the colors used in this Fast, Easy and Pretty Afghan. The green/blue combination is always eye-catching. Sadly, this type of yarn is not available in my part of the world.

What a simple yet delightful throw. I see in the post that this is easy because in part of the yarn selected to make this afghan. As to date, I have not used the bulky yarn but her is an opportunity to make use of a new medium. Thank you for the free pattern.

Any pattern with fast, easy and pretty in the title gets my attention. I like to keep a few finished projects on hand for those last minute gifts and this free pattern fits that need. I have saved it for a rainy day and I hope to post a picture once complete.

I am also looking fo the save button. I did find the social media buttons but there is no grey plus button. With the social media bottons there is just a window for comments and a "More" button...

Hi devilsdaughter62 4 157417, The grey plus button is directly to the left of the comment button and the the right of the Twitter button. If you aren't seeing this, please contact us directly at so that we can better assist you. Thanks! --Kaitlin, AFCAP Editor

Has the option to save the patterns been removed?

Hi ilooktosee 9892908, The location of the button has changed. It is now next to the row social media buttons below the content, above the You May Also Like section. It is a grey plus button. I hope that helps! --Kaitlin, AFCAP Editor

Very easy pattern perfect for beginners. My 12 year old granddaughter just finished hers with no help.

I can't even download the pattern. Only gave a 1 star since I can't download the pattern and I have to rate it.

When you click the green link that reads, "Click here for the free crochet pattern" it will take you to the pattern. The designer has it on a few pages and you have to use the purple arrow to go to the next page. Please let me know if you are still having trouble. Thanks, Krista, Editor

Wow, this afghan is definitely fast, easy, and pretty! The variegated yarn takes the basic double crochets to the next level.

This Fast, Easy and Pretty Afghan is true to its name. The finished product looks very fast and easy to make as it is only double crochets all throughout. It pretty because the double crochet stitches and the type of yarn used are aesthetically appealing. Thanks for this free pattern.

I totally agree Zeemer! I need something to do to keep my hands occupied while I watch television. This is so simple that it will do the trick. There are so many different yarns-solids to variegated and alpaca to acrylic- on the market that I can do up many of these and never have two that look alike!

Did I miss the size this pattern makes?

I can't even download the instructions!! Can't there be anything offered as free that doesn't mean you have to download unwanted, unnecessary software too? /this is how I figured out how to make mine

I downloaded it without any additional software from with no problem on my old slow running PC with no problems
