Ta da!

I am so proud of my latest crochet project. I made this for my sister Pam's cabin.
This is really my first attempt at changing colors without carrying the yarn across, even though that's what I did in a few places. I can tell where I carried the yarn across in the bears's legs. But I still love it and I'm sure she will too. It's not big enough to use as a blanket but she can throw it across the back of her sofa. I added the border starting with the cream color and finished with a reverse single crochet edging. The pattern was in my Ravelry favorites. Pattern here.
