Wow another great afghan to make! I like how great this Arch Columns Crochet Afghan looks. After reading the written pattern, here on this page. It sound like it will work out nicely and should not be too hard to whip up. I love the border pattern used in this one. This one has gone to the top of my must make list. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet afghan pattern.

This is such a beautiful afghan pattern. I love how one stitch can make a pattern look so intricate. The colors in this pattern look so good together, but I dont think there are many people that would like these colors together. I would consider switching either the pink or green to a more compatible color for either one, depending whether it is for a boy or a girl.
