Everyone's Favorite Afghan can come in all kinds of colors, but this one comes in brown and an assortment of variegated colors. Crochet afghan patterns like this are classic and one of a kind, especially when you add your own color preferences to the mix. Remember the old days and crochet this beautiful vintage afghan. This granny square afghan is an intermediate pattern, but once you get the hang of the granny square pattern, you'll be working them up in no time. Make a few a night, take some on a road trip or just crochet where you want - when you're all done you get to join them together.

I think almost everyone I know has an afghan like this one, and why not? It's classic and beautiful. Each is unique. This pattern is the epitome of frugality! Our grandparents and great-grandparents knew a thing or two about saving money and using everything they owned without wasting anything! Styles like this will never go out of style.

This was my first challenge sometime ago. It's one of my favorites...

I would like to use this pattern but it keeps being obscured from view along the bottom third. by adverts. As soon as one is cleared another appears. Most annoying to say the least.
