This Quiet Country Garden Throw is so lovely. It's worked in blocks in 6 different colors. It's really so lovely when you see the finished throw. The colors are so refreshing and calming with the light greens, aran and light brown interspersed with each other. Again, a very lovely handiwork.

Here's the link to the diagram http//www.allfreecrochetafghanpatterns.com/masteri == mages/files/Quiet-Country-Garden-Throw-Diagram.jpg == . Gorgeous colors, very cool, serene and unassuming. Thanks for the easy access to the pattern. I want to make this project.
