he Cape Cod Afghan is really a cute pattern. It would be a great one for beginners. The pattern only calls for two skeins of yarn. The pattern reads really easy. This could also be used as a baby blanket and would look great in one of those baby colors. This is one pattern that I will definitely save for a later project down the road.
