Rainbow Glass Spectrum Afghan

This easy crochet pattern looks like someone cut off a piece of the rainbow and brought it into your home. The Rainbow Glass Spectrum Afghan is one of the most refreshing patterns you'll ever see. Even though it has a basic crochet tutorial, this is one of the coolest crochet afghan patterns with a rainbow color scheme. The different sizes of the stripes on this blanket almost give the illusion that they're moving across it, like a reflection through glass. You definitely don't want to pass this rainbow crochet blanket up.

Five rating for the colors chosen. Bright and refreshing to the eyes.I would like to make this. Thanks for the free pattern available right on this page. It is brief and easy to understand as it is a very simple half double crochet design. Thanks.

Re mandygirl's comment, I agree. Maybe the royal blue is folded back and we can't see it. I'm going to try this easy afghan as I haven't crocheted for about 20 years and need to get a feel for it again. )

In making this the design is not what is shown. There isn't an extra stripe of orange 3 rows in. There is no royal blue shown in the photo either.
