Oh yes. This Painted Desert Crochet Afghan depicts the appearance of the desert when the sun shines on it brightly. The combination of orange and yellow is the color of the desert during summer when the sun is shining brightest. This is so beautiful. Cheers!

I really like this pattern...what colors were used for it? I would like to duplicate it.

Tennirunner, This yarn company no longer exists. You can choose any 4 colors that blend well together or find colors similar to the ones shown above. I'd say you are looking for light gold, orange, red, tan and brown. The pattern is written especially so you can tailor it to the colors you prefer.

Have to sign up for another news letter to get this pattern. I really don't want more news letters.

I can't buy the yarn if you don't specify what color is A,B,C &D. Please help me understand what the colors are.
