Finally, this (thing, expletive deleted) is done.   As usual with my afghans, this will be donated to the Men Who Crochet CGOA chapter’s Project Linus effort.  The square in the center’s pattern was such a pain in the you know where I opted to only make ONE (I forget which rows, but I had to rip them out several times to “get them right”), and simply crochet a bunch of rounds of each color around and around.  The pattern is from Krochet Krystal, you have to join her Yahoo Group to get the pattern (free)

Also, to cover up the holes in the corners, I opted to do foundation single crochet “ropes” and “lace” them in and out, a pink “rope” was made to “cover” the corners of the orange and yellow rows, an orange “rope” was made to cover the pink and yellow corners, and so forth.  Foundation crochet is a technique of making your foundation chain AT THE SAME TIME as forming the stitches of your first row.   If you Google “how to do foundation crochet” you can find a TON of websites, videos, etc. on how to do that.

ETA (edited to add): the yarn used is Caron Simply Soft Brites.  The yellow is Lemonade, the orange is Melon, and the pink is Watermelon.
