To all of you who have indicated that you wish there was a 'crocheted version' of this afghan, you might find what you want here... http://www.purplekittyyarns.com/crochet-afghan-patterns/7-point-star-throw Follow the pattern in the link, but use the color combinations and rows of the knitted one. The pattern is from Red Heart. Hope this helps...
