Fairy Tale Afghan

By:

Once upon a time, there was a sweet little baby who loved curling up in this Fairy Tale Afghan. Made with the softest yarns and created with love and care, this simple crocheted afghan pattern was the perfect way to nod off into dreamland. The soft pastel colors and big crocheted granny squares help to give this magical afghan a look and feel that babies and adults will appreciate...and everyone is guaranteed to live happily ever after in the comfort of this cozy blanket.
