Reagan's Rosebuds Baby Afghan

This afghan pattern is in honor of my first granddaughter who is due in September and who will be named Reagan. This is a very simple pattern, though it does look complicated. The rose bud pattern is made by the color changes. This is an adaptation of the classic pattern "Granny Ripple".
