Is there a way to print the instructions???

Hi Kpleshaw, There's a print button below the name and byline of the project, but you can also highlight the entirety of the pattern and then either Print the selection or copy/paste it in to a Word document and print that. Hope that helps! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

Have you looked at how beautiful this afghan is? It is absolutely STUNNING and it is rated Easy, that is definitely a double bonus! I love the colors but one can really make it as bright or as under stated as one wishes. Perhaps I will remove one or two of the colors just to fit in with our dcor but that is the only change I will make. It is going to look so great.

This is such a nice afghan. I love how the different colours give off the illusion that the octagons, squares, and triangles are not all the same patterns. I would like mine to be a bit bigger, but this pattern looks easy to adjust, so it should be simple enough.

This afghan reminds me of one my mother made for me in the 70s. Wow, does this bring back some happy memories. I have no idea whatever happened to that afghan. Looks like its time for me to make one to pass down now to continue the tradition. Thank you.

I loved all the color. It took me time to get all the colors recommended but I am so glad I did. It took a while for me to complete but it came out just beautiful. It makes me happy just looking at it.

This is a fantastic stash buster project! I love to make motif afghans the smaller components are so much easier to manage than working on a one-piece afghan. Scrapghans are my favourite type of afghan to make. You never know how the final product is going to look! Plus, the random colour schemes reminds me of the retro granny square afghans of the 70s love that!

Wow. A kaleisdoscope of colors! I have no problem about doing the squares. Problem is the attaching and connecting. I have in fact two sets of granny squares afghan that I have started but have not finished yet. Yeah, I intend to finish them there are just too many projects in between them. Lucky us the pattern is just right here. Thanks.

on the triangle motif it says to turn, but then on next round it says with right side facing?? not sure what to do

I am on this part now. I have the same question.

there's only 6 colors for the octogon part even though there's 7 rows in it.

Looks like Row 5 and 6 are the same color.

can you check the direction for row 7 square motif there's something weird in it.
