Can this be made with Red Heart Super Saver Yarn? I am making one for myself in the Medusa and one for a co-worker in Spectrum, but I am looking for a less expensive yarn.

I was going to upload a photo of my finished afghan but the site will not take anything over 1.0 mb. My photos are 2.9 mb. :(

AAAAHHHH!!! The pattern is gone! I know how to make a granny square so that is not the problem, I just need to know what yarn is used in this photo! I absolutely love and want to use it but can't find that info anywhere!! :(

This uses Bernat Mosaic in Calypso. When you click for the pattern, scroll down and it says what yarn was used. The Mosaic yarn comes in some great colors. I've used it for sweaters and it holds up well.

If eash square is 4 rows = 4 inches, then 3 squares = 1 foot, so reduce it by 3 squares across / 3 squares down

I want to reduce the size of this afghan by about 1 foot. Any ideas on how many squares that would be?

I'm so sorry to be such a bother, but I meant to also say that there were no instructions in this pattern as to how to 'connect' the squares at the end when your all finished with making the squares. Can we just put them together with sc's? Thanks again!!!

you can do what ever you would like to join them however you like i like to do a slip stitch then sew in the ends i like to join in diffrent colors to make the squares stand out just have fun and make it your own ....

I did find the pattern, but unfortunately, it wasn't too well 'written' (at least for people like myself who are not quite up to the advanced level yet). Part of the instructions are as follows... (in Rnd 4 for ex:)... It reads... Ch3, 2 dc, ch1, skip to next space *3dc, ch1, sk to next space 3dc, ch1,3dc,ch2,3dc,ch1 (corner made) continue from around and join. Slip stitch to corner. I'm assuming that where it reads "skip to next space *3dc" they mean to 'skip to the next space where you already did the 3 dc's' and then continue with the rest of the directions (i.e. ch1, 3dc, ch2, 3dc and so on). Then where it says "continue from"... are we supposed to continue from the * and then go around or what?? I'm confused at this point. Usually, in a pattern, when it reads... "continue from *, it means to continue from that point in the pattern and finish 'around' the piece in that same way. Otherwise I think I can make out the rest of the pattern. Also... Is there a difference between a dc (in a pattern) and a DC (in the same pattern). This pattern shows DC in some instructions and dc in the instructions. Were these just 'typos' or is there some method to this??? Thank you so much though for the patterns you provide for those of us who are still 'learning' on their own. Please help me with this one though becaues I really would like to make this afghan for my Goddaughter who just lost her mother (and there was a rainbow that appeared outside her mother's hospital window a few moments after she took her last breath). I really would like to get this made correctly for her. :) Thanks.

when you get to a corner you do 3 dc ch 2 then 3 dc ch 1 then go to the next space and do just 3 dc ch1 to the next corner and in that corner do the 3 dc ch 2 3 dc in same to form and keep your corners going star to star just means to repeat till you join at the beginning again every corner will have the 3 double chain 2 3 double chain 1 no matter how big you make the square hope this helps all the others are just 3 doubles chain 1 except the corners that is where you do the extra stitches

How big are the squares?

I Love it! I found the perfect afghan pattern for my grandson, Thank You Michael.

Thank you for the easy to understand pattern :) Now I just need to get the colours! :D

If there was a problem with the pattern not coming up, it has been fixed. I clicked on the pattern and it came up right away... great too... sean.

There is no pattern, there is no pdf link, there is no copy and paste feature. there is just an advertisement announcing which products were bought in the last hour right below the name of the pattern. The afghan looks like it would be a lot of fun to make. Too bad someone dropped the ball on this one. Don't even waste your time trying to look for the pattern, you wont find it!

Wow - it was a waste of time having to read your 3 emails saying what a waste of time it was. What a sad negative person...

The link for this pattern takes you to another website. The pattern never comes up. What a disappointing waste of time.

How do I get this pattern?

Well I've jumped through all your hoops and still don't have the Rainbow Square Afghan Pattern. Please fix your links, after all this is such a waste of our time...

I think you have to become a member of yet another crochet club, tired of trying to get patterns and having my inbox full of useless things that are not related to crochet. Great pattern but fairly easy the trick is using the special yarn. Granny Squares are easy just have to get the yarn. But I am thinking that it would be pretty to match yarn and use as shading. So that is my new project. If you can make a granny square, and crochet and afford the yarn then by all means go and not yourself out.

Well, I joined this site so I could get the pattern for the Rainbow Square Afghan, and when I click on the "Click here for pattern" link, it just brings me to a carousel-style advertisement and there is a title of Calypso Granny Square Afghan. Can't figure out how to actually get the pattern.

Hi quarterhoarder. The download is for free clip art, not the pattern.

I liked this and wanted to download the pattern but it you had to download a program first and I was warned by Norton Security that this program was just created recently and I should not download until more is known about it. Is there any other way to get this pattern?

Hi, I have downloaded the program and have used it endlessly. I have had no problems with it.

quarterhoarder Sorry, I don't understand your problem, about downloading the pattern. I was just there and didn't see a PDF file or any file to "download." All you have to do is Copy the Whole Pattern, then Paste to Word or any document program, Print out the document and you have the pattern.

Well I just went to the site and even joined it but there is no link to this afghan all I get is the same as Catdabrat above. I keep getting sent to a advertisement and there is a title of Calypso Granny Square Afghan but no pattern. I looked where he has his written patterns and still cant find the download for it.
