Pattern # 281: Crochet Squares Afghan
About a month ago, I asked my family to email me their Christmas wish list -- crocheted items, that is. My Mother in Law asked me for this, specifically. Talk about easy, I know exactly what she wants! It is a bit smaller that it says, so I may change it up a bit, but I'm not sure yet.
12/28/10 - It is finished! I actually finished it before Christmas, and gave it to her Christmas morning. The blanket turned out beautiful and incredibly soft -- I may just have to make one for myself!! I followed the pattern exactly as written and ended up with a decent sized blanket. To join the strips, I safety pinned each "joint" where 4 square should have matched up. You would not really be able to tell if it wasn't completely straight, but it is anyways!
