"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."
Philippians 4:8

Michaels Craft Crochet Cluster Afghan Pattern

 Here is the blanket throw I made for my daughter for Christmas. She saw the green one that I made for myself, and she loved it because, "It is so thick and warm mom!" She made fun of the bright green chartreuse colored one which I love! I made hers in Maroon, which suits her decor beautifully.

I have tried many of them, but this one is by far the best one I have made.
My girlfriend made it and showed it to me. Her's was perfection!
I had the pattern stuck inside my yarn box and after seeing hers, I started making mine that night.
Check out the free patterns at Michaels today! I'll bet they have put out new ones for the new year!
