This is another project where the pattern is just right in front of the page, no more links to follow. This afghan lives up to its name because the original afghans were initially made of bright and colorful yarns. So lets enjoy doing this very beautiful afghan. Thanks.

I love this idea and am doing the same thing with my yarn scraps but with solid granny squares. When I have enough squares made, I'll put them all together into a colorful afghan just like this project. I encourage other to do the same! It's fun, easy, and so colorful! Great job Ms. Beck!

I wish this could be knitted in this pattern
