This is the latest afghan that I've done.
I finished it up yesterday evening.
I used this pattern http://yarn-ing.blogspot.com/2009/07/granny-square-pattern.html for the squares.
Then I put 4 of the squares together to make a bigger square.
Then I did 2 rounds of edging around the bigger square.
Then once I had all the bigger squares I wanted (20 of them), I started joining them together.
Once they were all joined, I did 2 rounds of edging around the whole afghan then a final round of sc edging with picots. I LOVE how this turned out. It's not really long, but that's ok. The person that will be receiving this at Christmas isn't that long either. She's all grown now and is still under 5 foot.
