  3. I am searching for a pattern to an afghan that is all over pinterest and it seems to trace back to this site. I'm not the only one - everytime someone posts a picture of this particular afghan either on pinterest or flickr there's a string of comments asking for the pattern. When I right clicked on the image and had google search for the image it came up with "Color Pop granny blanket, tutorial by Annoo´s Crochet". So, is it one of yours and could you put up a link for the pattern if you have it? Here is the picture of the blanket if this site will let me post links.

    1. it is Beautiful, but it is not mine....I am not sure why it directs you to my blog....maybe because I have a similar name for one of my free Patterns
      Good Luck to find your pattern
      Happy Crochet

  4. So delightfully cute OMG!~
