Rainbow Sherbet Afghan

By: Katherine Eng for Red Heart Yarn

It's pretty obvious how this Rainbow Sherbet Afghan got its name - the bright colors will definitely remind you of the sweet frozen treat of rainbow sherbet. Bright and cool colors come together to create a visually appealing design that will add a pop of color to any room of your house. The funky zigzag design of this free crochet afghan pattern is fun to create. It's the perfect pattern to make for spring and summer months.
