This is a nice change from the old Granny Square, that I'm not a big fan of due to having to put them all together. I like how this Granny's Treasure Throw looks like! The pattern is well written and easy to understand and follow. I have saved this one and added it to my many must make patterns. This will be a great way to use up my odd half scans of yarn. Thank you so much for this free crochet pattern.

I want to do this. Great for a small table. Or something that you can take in your car when you travel. Colors are lovely. I like it. Thanks for having the pattern just right in front for many crocheters to see.
