Orange Sherbert and Vanilla Waves Lap Blanket - Orange, Light Yellow

| No Comments

Colors: Orange, Light Yellow (Red Heart Classic)

Book: All-American Crochet Afghans - ISBN 1-882138-77-5 - Copyright 2001 - House of White Birches

After two blankets with blue, brown, cream, and white, I needed a color change, so I moved along to this orange sherbert and vanilla ice cream combination! The original Wavy Shells pattern uses white and a peacock blue. The border is my own (it duplicates the wavy shell pattern in the blanket's body). A fast fast and easy pattern!
