Crochet Squares Afghan Reviewed by Mel Bazley on 2011-01-06 ****
I agree with others about this yarn not being appropriate for beginners. This is the first adult sized afghan I have made, and the first time I used homespun. The pattern is easy but the stitches are hard to count in this yarn.

The pattern was very easy, but since I like a larger afghan, I added two extra squares to each panel, and one additional panel to the entire afghan. I also changed the color order, as I thought the change between two of them was too abrupt. I love the entire finished project, the colors are beautiful, the afghan is warm and soft and it went together very quickly. I'm a self taught crochet-er, and have only done scarves before. This was a great first larger project. I would make it again with other colors without hesitation.

I agree that using Homespun yarn is not really for beginners. I had a very hard time counting stitches with this as it is very difficult to see them with this particular yarn. I still managed to make the afghan, but it took me a long time and pulling a lot of stitches out and starting over in places. Very beautiful, though!

I like the pattern, but it just wasn't wide enough. I followed the pattern, with different yarn and it just turned out small. I added an extra two strips and two more squares per strip.

This will make a beautiful present and must make another for myself. I love this yarn!

I am looking forward to starting this project. I do not know if the yarn is too new for stores, but I had a terrible time finding the yarn. At my third store I found one color but ended up ordering the other three online.

If you are an utter beginner DO NOT start with this project. The yarn is the "homespun" type that has interesting kinks in it that make it really hard to tell where the stitches are to be able to count them & know where to insert the hook. I couldn't even get the thing started after multiple tries. It was very, very frustrating. It's an "beginner" pattern, but not an easy yarn to use for a beginner. If you're an absolute beginner, like me, do yourself a favor and choose a different pattern to start with. I'm going to put it on a shelf and come back to it when I know what I'm doing because it is pretty (the yarn is lovely). But don't start with this one.

I am almost done with the afghan, the pattern has a few mistakes, but easy enough to figure out if you have been crocheting a while. I was nervous about this yarn as well, but the softness is so worth the difference! I haven't sewn the rows together, and decided to add another row, I had plenty of yarn left over.

This afghan is so quick and easy. I am going to make two for Christmas presents. Any color combination will make a pretty afghan. I like it because it is portable.
