Fall Foliage Afghan
"The Fall Foliage Afghan was inspired by the colors of the falling leaves in Autumn! You can use this gorgeous and warm blanket all the way through Thanksgiving. Or customize it with whatever colors you wish. This stitch pattern creates a solid and thick fabric, perfect for fighting off that Autumn chill. For the majority of the blanket, you will use only half double crochets and double crochets. The staggered stripes create visual interest and because of the four rows per stripe pattern, all of your ends are on one side of the blanket."
