"Modern look for a classic granny square blanket. This blanket consists of 48 granny squares joined together with a mattress stitch and assembled with one row of half double crochet. You can easily adjust blanket size according to your preferences and make it as big or small as you’d like. The pattern for one 3-color square might seem complex at first sight,that’s why I’ve created a step-by-step picture tutorial. Make your own Granny Pinwheel Blanket and increase the beauty of your home decor."

OMG! This is just sooooooo beautiful! Wow!!! The combination of yellow, black, and white is just incredible. I will definitely make this sooner. Lovelyyyyyyy!

This is such a beautiful afghan pattern. I love it, but I would not consider trying to sell it either, because I would not have any luck selling such a large item. I agree people would not pay what it is worth, only for the materials. Definitely something to gift or keep for yourself!

I love these afghan squares that look like real quilting blocks. Having cut, pieced, sewn and quilted the genuine article, I am all in favor of these crochet versions. Theyre not only fasterthey can literally be worked one block at a timebut dont require the space commitment to set up a full sized quilt. Highly recommended for recovering quilters.

You are going to need lots and lots of time to complete this BEAUTIFUL and stunning afghan. It will be your long term project that you will be turning to on weeknights and weekends. It will be a labor of love. If you are selling it, please promise me you will put an appropriate price on it, worthy of the time you spent on it. But I am willing to bet- it will be well worth it.

Better to gift it or keep it for yourself. Even the best quilters around here have a hard time getting people to pay the actual value. People look at the material costs but figure our time must be free.
