Now here is an easy looking crochet project that I might like to do. I like easy, but I lose interest after a while, I think that this pattern provides enough changes especially with the colors to keep me interested for the duration of the project. It is pretty in the picture, but I wouldn't say those are watermelon colors, as they seem too pale on the screen.

Very pretty,looks easy to make,will have to try it.
