Winter Opulence "Granny" Square pattern
"This beautiful crochet granny square creates a thick, sturdy block that will make a warm addition to your next blanket or afghan. It is bursting with texture, and no two rounds are the same, making this a challenging, yet fun square to crochet. I used Red Heart Soft yarn because it has a nice drape, and feels amazing! You may substitute other worsted weight yarns, but you may not end up with the same effect."
