Afghan Squares

The traditional granny square is a great foundation for an afghan. Choose 3 coordinating colors and either combine all 3 colors to make each square (alternating which colors you use in the center, middle, and last rows) or use each color to make solid squares. Then lay out the squares into whatever color combination or pattern you desire! Granny squares usually measure about 4 to 5 inches on each side, so you'll need to figure out how long and wide you want your afghan to be, then figure out how many squares you will need.
