Sun and Sand Afghan

By:

Beach bums will love this fun and simple Sun and Sand Afghan from Roseanna Beck.  With the soft summer shades of sand, surf, and sunshine, this crochet ripple afghan pattern is light and airy and is great for a year round throw.  The soft colors of this afghan also make it a great gift for a new baby boy.  This is an easy enough pattern for a beginner and a fun crochet pattern for anyone who's looking for something fun to make!
