The age of the pattern is not such a big factor with an afghan, infact the old fashioned look just seems to hep with the appeal.
The pattern says to use a bulky yarn with a white and blue color scheme but this can obviously be changed to suit.
Instructions are very basic but the pattern is very straight forward and should be easy to follow. You can download a printer friendly ersion or PDF at www.freevintageknits.com/laurel-afghan-pattern.
