This was super easy to make and a lot of fun. Compared to most afghans, which take me a season or so to do, I had this whipped up in about a month.


Update 1

Something about the rainbow colors descending bothered me, so I put the purple on the bottom and went upward toward red.

I also eliminated the row of puff stitches on the top, and decided to just connect the rainbows.

Update 2

I added a border around the entire afghan and instead of upside down white puffy clouds at the bottom, I added a rainbow ripple and some tassels.

Update 3

I am donating this to a silent auction for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
