This is a great afghan pattern to have in your crochet pattern arsenal. It's a quick to make pattern and although the pattern is called Blueberry Lemonade, you can use any colour yarn combination you'd like. It would make a great gift to bring to a baby shower. It could end up as a family heirloom!
