Everyone's Favorite Afghan
Everyone's Favorite Afghan can come in all kinds of colors, but this one comes in brown and an assortment of variegated colors.

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.

Oh my word, who does not love these standard old fashioned granny square blankets that absolutely everyone has had at some time or another. I learnt to crochet by helping my mother make the squares and to work in the millions of yarn ends, lol. My nephew still uses such a blanket that my mother made in the 1960s.

This is a classic pattern for an afghan. The only other afghan that is this popular is the ripple afghan. I clicked the link provided to go to the bloggers site to print the pattern and this blog has an insanely large amount of ads and popups that take forever to load. After that, the pattern is pretty easy to access for printing.

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.

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.
