This is the new afghan I'm making. I have finished with the white and am working on the light pink. As you can see by the granny square next to it, there are 3 other, darker, pinks that I will also do 'blocks' of. This is for my daughter, she claimed it. It's very easy too. I love it. Takes a lot of yarn though. I'm posting the pattern from husbands aunt as well just in case someone else thinks it's perfect for them too.
Row 1....Turn: do 2 db in 3rd st., =1/2 shell
Skip 2 sts & sc in next st
Skip 2 sts & in next st do 3 db, chain 1 & do 3 more db in same st ...= shell
Repeat above, across, ending with sc.
Row 2....Turn: chain 3, do 2 db in 1st st
Sc in back loop of chain in center of shell
Make shell in back of loop of next sc. Repeat across
DO NOT REPEAT ROW 1 AT ANY TIME. REPEAT ROW 2 EVERY TIME.
..................I love it.............
