Big granny square afghanI just finished crocheting a granny square afghan for my son. This will be one of his gifts at Christmas (yes, he’ll be thrilled). I used colors that I thought would look nice on his sofa. His girlfriend will appreciate it if he does not. It’s nice to snuggle under a blanket when watching a movie!

I used five colors of Loops & Threads Impeccable yarn which can be found at Michaels stores. It’s practical yarn for a boy who will throw this in the washer and dryer.

If you can crochet a granny square, you can make this afghan. I expanded my square to 5 feet by 5 feet, a great size for an afghan. When you reach a size you like, finish the afghan with a double crochet stitch in every stitch around the blanket (two in the corners). It strengthens the edge and polishes the look of the blanket.
