This is a free crochet pattern for an easy 2-row granny square that can be used for patchwork quilt picture afghans (smaller granny squares can make more detailed pictures), like the above blanket with sailboats and fish (in this Leisure Arts leaflet: Perfect Patches -- 5 Afghans to Crochet (Leisure Arts #3888)) or the above quilt-like afghan with flowers (in this Leisure Arts leaflet: Patchwork Afghans Thru the Year, Book 2 (Leisure Arts #3223)"). See also my blog post listing lots of books and leaflets with picture afghan patterns.

Just wanted to say thank you for the great post on 2 round granny square patchwork afghans! Such a great idea and makes things limitless. I'm about to begin on an afghan for my families cabin, one which my aunt and I came up with the design for. Has meaning for the family and what not. I wasn't sure how I was going to put it all together and figured I'd wing it. This may be a much easier yet fun way to do it!
