Crochet Border Patterned Blanket is rated 4.3333 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from FUN!!! I've made three of these so far, one in browns like the photo, one in blues, and am currently working on one in blacks, white and charcoal gray. The single crocheted blocks makes it a perfect take and make. And the border really makes the whole design "pop".

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice but small I should have checked the finished size of this afghan. It is much smaller than I anticipated - it is really a lap blanket. However, it turned out beautiful. I used cloud, colonial and windsor for the colors. I had enough yarn leftover to make two pillows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! I just finished this afghan with the exact yarn and colors specified in the instructions. It looks beautiful and is very warm. The border is awesome. I had enough medium and dark colored yarn left to make a scarf.
