Oh my this green color used in this blanket is beautiful! I so have to make this one after reading the written pattern. I think this one will go nicely and come out great. The pattern is easy to understand and I love the clusters that will add a nice texture in in blanket. Now I need to go buy more yarn, my hubby will be so happy, (Not, LOL) But he loves snuggling up with the blankets I crochet. Thank you for sharing another must have crochet pattern.

Is there a picture of this somewhere? I don't believe the red throw (shown) is the correct one for this pattern.

I've pinned this blanket for future reference. This aqua blanket in solid color is very simple yet elegant on its own. Thanks for the pattern maker and for the one who saved it right in front of the page.

I just finished this afghan last night. I cannot wait to stay home tonight and snuggle on the couch with it! Perfect Friday night for me :)

Love, love, love this color! It's perfect for spring!
