Delicious Fruit and Creme Throw

3 Comments

The bright colors in this Delicious Fruit and Creme Throw from Roseanna Beck makes it great for kids and adults alike.  This is an easy crochet afghan pattern for those who are new to crochet and is a great project to work on during those cold winter weekends.  The great thing about colorful afghans like this one is that they can tie bold colors together for a great statement piece that would compliment any living room or bedroom.
