This Cozy Yuletide Squares Blanket is very challenging to make. It is made up of big and small squares assembled in a very systematic way in various colors that are well coordinated. I love the shades of red, green and white used here because they are subdued and laid back. This is perfect gift for grandma or grandpa. If they are wheelchair bound, then this is the perfect wheelchair cover for this coming holiday season.
