Enjoy sweet dreams of the ocean with this Sea Coral Afghan. Warm enough for cooler nights and lacy enough not to overheat you, this blanket is perfect for year-round comfort. The soft colors of this blanket work together nicely, and would complement almost any decor. If you're making this afghan for a baby, try using pastel colors or shades of pink and blue. No matter what colors you use to make this afghan, you're sure to love snuggling up with this blanket and a warm cup of coffee.

Hi Connie! I just enabled the print button, which can be found under the article headline at the top of the page. I tested it on my end in Chrome and it looks like it works! Please let me know if I can be of further assistance. Thanks so much. -Dana from FaveCrafts.

What 4 rows are used on the repeats ?

Hi there! I believe once the pattern is established you'll want to repeat rows 13-16. I hope that helps! -Dana from FaveCrafts
