Avid crocheter and designer Vanna White generously
shares her original pattern, "Vanna's Choice," with those who have participated
in the afghans for Afghans project.
If you have crocheted or knitted a blanket, hat, mittens, socks, sweater,
or vest for displaced Afghans, please avail yourself of Vanna's pattern
for your own enjoyment.
