My niece is an animal lover...all animals. But her real passion is wolves. She even went to Yellowstone National Park and hung out with a guy who worked there studying them. So it seemed appropriate, when I found this pattern, to crochet it and give it to her. I believe this is the 3rd graph afghan that I have made. Sometimes when I'm crocheting from graphs I wonder if it's worth the hard work...but when I get these results in the end I know it was worth every hour I spent tucking in loose ends.
