Melon Ripple Afghan

By:

The pastel colors of this Melon Ripple Afghan make it a great crochet pattern to make for spring. The ripple pattern has a calming effect that will remind you of being at the beach. Super Soft Caron yarn makes this an easy crochet afghan if you know how to crochet a blanket; a must-do project to make for yourself. It will brighten up any room of your home, and it's also great for taking to the park with you if you want to simply relax and enjoy some fresh air.
