I can't even tell you how excited I am to see that you posted this pattern for free! It's beautiful and I'm working on that 12x12 sampler afghan you inspired, so it will fit right in.

This pattern is so beautiful! I used it to make a baby afghan for my friend. (I used a variegated yarn instead of changing colors.) Thank you so much for sharing this great pattern! http://img846.imageshack.us/img846/6858/sblanket.jpg
