I love granny squares! You can make a bunch in such a short amount of time, and sew them together to make a beautiful afghan such as this one! I love the red and green Christmas theme! If you are not as big a fan of the Christmas colors, you could choose any two colors you like, and it would make a perfect afghan for your living space! Or the perfect gift for a loved one!
