Prepare to be blown away by this granny square crochet pattern. The Colorful Windmill Crochet Square has so much going on:  colorful stripes, a raised section for the blades of the windmilll, and a mix of different crochet stitches like the front post, shell, and V-stitches. This is an intermediate level granny square pattern, so it will be a good challenge to keep you on your toes—or fingertips, to be more precise. This would be the start to an excellent free afghan crochet pattern, especially with the opportunity to use so many bright colors and stripes.
