Square Dance Crochet Blanket

The Square Dance Crochet Blanket from Caron is a classic crochet motif blanket, that's easy to follow and quick to work up. Worked up by joining individually crocheted granny square motifs, this crochet blanket is great for spring and summertime nights.

This blanket is great to work on while it's warmer outside and if you're on the go because you can work up single granny squares wherever you go and you won't have to carry around an entire afghan.

Wow. I love this Square Dance blanket. Colors are not used every day but when you see something like this, you say oh, that is so beautiful. We just have to be bold about using colors our of the color wheel.

Could you please tell me how the squares were sewn together? Thank you!

As the pattern states it is perfect for a portable project. I crochet a lot of the train and bus and I am always looking for something like this. It works up quickly and all you have to do is crochet or sew the squares together, put the edging on and you have a beautiful afghan. Thank you.

where is page 2 please?
