Big Granny Square Afghan Reviewed by Jodi Lynn Wisneski on 2012-03-05 *****
I adore this afghan! I only wish that Lion Brand hadn't discontinued Chenille Thick and Quick :( oh, the fortune I have spent on Ebay buying this stuff! I made this afghan in Antique Homespun (again, discontinued...) and did the border in Midnight Blue and Burgundy Chenille. It is SO soft and luxurious, I made it extra big to cover my queen size bed, the thing must weigh 30 pounds. It is actually almost too warm to sleep under. You could probably just make it with Homespun and try to use another contrasting type of yarn to do the border, it just was nice to have coordinating colors! Despite the fact the Chenille was discontinued I still highly recommend this easy,gorgeous afghan!

I made this afghan as a birthday gift for my dad. He loved it, and I really like the way it turned out, too. The yarn is so nice and soft (Homespun and Quick & Thick Chenille). It took me about 3 weeks (on and off) to make it, but I thought it was pretty easy to make.

Thanks again for the free pattern!

I really love this pattern! It was my first Afghan and I really liked that it was completed in a couple of days! (Days off of course!)
This pattern makes something as traditional as an afghan modern and trendy.
It's an heirloom I will be proud to pass down!

Fun and easy. I've made lots of afghans. This one was great because you don't have to keep track of stitches as you watch TV, just keep going around the square!

So easy! My first attempt at crochet. I have made three more in different yarn (just adjust the hook size to the recommendation on the label). I used Pound of Love in pink & white for a baby blanket & made booties & hat (from this website too). You can watch tv & just do this one - very relaxing.

I have made this afghan several times and have changed the width of the different colors with great results. It is an easy and quick pattern to use.

Big Granny Square Afghan Reviewed by Denise Y. Rucker on 2008-08-16 *****
I have made this afghan several times for gifts. I use ombre colors for the center and repeat three rows of double crochet stitch for the border of each color of the center until it is large enough for a cover for a full-size bed. The cover is then personalized by the edge/trim that I use. I personally like the shell edge best but when I make it for a male I select a more subdued pattern. Everytime that I have been working on this afghan someone asks me to make them one!

I used this pattern to make a small throw for my grandmother, and she loved it! It is very easy and looks impressive when completed. Also, once the first two rounds are done, it could be a great project for anyone who needs very simple, repetitive tasks.
I played with the colors and textures before I started and found that you could use almost anything to create a great looking throw.
