Wow. This is so beautiful. I can imagine this is perfect to make for a son, father, brother. I'm sure they will like this when they open it on their special day. Soooo nice.

This is a great pattern for use left over yarn. The pattern calls for two basic colors but you can use other colors as well. You can work out your own pattern. It is a basic crochet pattern and it is a good take along project as well. It also gives you the details to make the pillows. Sounds good to me. Thank you.
