The pattern contains all the information the crochet crafter needs and also has some tips, maybe for further original creations. The result will be a gorgeous afghan of 46 inches or 115 cm in diameter, suitable to warm a small baby when taking an afternoon nap. The colors are baby blue for the snowflake and white for the edges. The color is suitable for both boys and girls, so the present will be most welcomed, either way.
