Those who love to crochet and those who don't know the craft but admire its beauty will have a grand time looking and talking about this lovely afghan.

Could you post a photo of the finished afghan, please? Thanks.

never dreamed there were so many ways to do a granny blanket. I'm in love

Hi Barb, I am a beginner crocheter. I can do the stitches, but following the directions I get lost. Would this pattern be fairly easy to follow?

I thought the same thing and then looked at the diagram for attaching and realized each corner is actually 3 squares joined to make the illusion. You will do fine. Try a square and see.
