Hi, last week I came late to the program (#313) and towards the end they were showing a crochet stitch resembling a fan using two colors.  I believe it was the makings of an afghan and referred to pattern in this series(#313).  I would love to find the pattern as my new year's resolution is to use up some of the yarn I already have.  Hope someone can help!  Thanks! sew.pieceful
