Crochet Squares Afghan Reviewed by tricia skipper on 2012-02-11 *****
Just finished this pattern and I have to say it was very easy. I did add extra blocks to each panel and an extra panel to make it wider. I've seen where a lot of people had problems counting stitches with this yarn, but I didn't have that problem. The yarn does fray quite easily though.

I made mine 5 squares by 7 squares and it's a comfortable size. I also put a 7 stitch wide border around the whole thing when I was done and it gave it a more finished look.

I ordered the colors you recommended and was surprised it worked up purple. I then bought barley, russet, painted desert, and wild fire. It worked up closer to your picture and is beautiful. Now I have to finish the purple one and am not happy that your picture was so off! That is why I rated it a 2.
This was an expensive mistake.

Just finishing this afghan for a gift. So very soft! One comment.....this yarn is not easy to work with when it comes to counting stitches.
Finally got the feel for using it and I'm very glad I hung in there. The colors I used were in the tones of rusts and greens as the pattern colors are no longer available. And, I am adding an additional row as the extra width will be nice. (Had to buy add'l yarn so am adding a border as well for a finished edge.) I will make again and try other yarns for different styles.

This pattern was easy to use. Even though I hadn't crocheted anything more than basic potholders in years this was suprisingly quick to make. The afghan turned out beautifully. I enjoyed the way that it came together. Definitely a patten I will use again in the future. My seven year old daughter loves how it looks too since she chose her own colors :) Can't wait to find more patterns like this to make.

Used a different yarn and hook size, and added length and width. Perfect housewarming gift.

I made this afghan for my husband soI changed the colors to browns, creams and dark blue. It came out beautiful and was sooo soft. I did add an extra row of blocks for extra width. My husband loves it. I am making another in purple tones.

I'm a beginner and I loved making this afghan. It's beautiful and very warm. I'm tall and it' the perfect size. I didn't need to add any strips. Finally, something that matches my living room perfectly :-)

I made this as a Christmas gift. It worked up so quickly and easily. And it was absolutely beautiful. I'd love to see alternative color combinations using this same pattern!
