Wagon Wheel Afghan

I found this pattern in a Quick & Easy Crochet Magazine Fall/Holiday 1986 edition. I’ve copied this pattern onto this page to allow for easier viewing. I’ve used Super Bulky yarn, instead of the Bulky yarn recommended because I wanted the blanket a bit thicker. I hope you guys love this pattern as much as I do. Enjoy!
