| No Comments

Size: 33.5 inches x 44 inches

Pattern: European Afghan (variation of Basic Granny Square)
Book: Woman's Day Super Special Granny Squares & Crocheted Fashions (magazine) - published September 1988 - Copyright 1988

I love forest green and since I hadn't done a green blanket yet, this was just the right project. The variation of the basic granny square is so fast to make - it requires almost no thought (i.e., is automatic and soothing). The beige/off-white yarn has a slightly yellow tint to it. I used the basic pattern of the European Afghan squares and did my own thing.
