Mountain Mist Afghan
Using the double crochet and the cluster stitches, you can make this beautiful free crochet afghan pattern. Five different colors are used for a nice contrasting look, but you can choose your own personal color palette depending on your room.
This Mountain Mist Afghan is worked up in an easy crochet ripple pattern and will really remind you of the mountains. If you aren't familiar with the ripple stitch, you'll find that it's not that hard to master once you get going.
