I love that I can commit to completing a project using just 5 skeins of yarn total! This pretty pastel spring afghan would make quite a welcome gift and look quite impressive after unwrapping. The stitch may look difficult but it really is not that hard. It just may take a few minutes of practice, but once you get the hang of it you will be able to do this without following the pattern. It will come naturally!

The instructions for Row 3 include "fbdc around next bpdc." I am not familiar with at an fbdc is nor does it seem to be in any terminology books for crocheting. Is this supposed to be fpdc or bpdc?
