This is a beautiful afghan to make. The video tutorial is super easy to follow, and as someone who is new to crocheting, I appreciated the step-by-step video instruction, and it also taught me how to read the pattern as we went along. This was my first big crochet project and I loved learning all the new stitches and textures. I can't wait to start making another one.
