As I was working on it, I decided it really looked very western in colors (like the deserts that were around his family's house) and that I would give it to his mother. It wasn't long after that she commented on how the colors were beautiful and couldn't wait to see me model it. I finished it on Tuesday morning early and presented it to her while she was drinking her morning coffee. Her face was priceless. I told her the payment would be to let me take photos of her modeling it so I could post it to my blog. Here they are.
I loved the pattern and as a friend mentioned it is a good piece to do with scraps of yarn you may have. I will definitely make one for myself and it was easy peasy!
