Here's all I have so far:
The square pattern is inspired by one of my favorite crochet pattern books,
200 Crochet Blocks for Blankets, Throws, and Afghans: Crochet Squares to Mix and Match by Jan Eaton.
This afghan will be made from Caron Simply Soft yarn, in red, white and blue patriotic colors, using a G hook, and I'm not worried about gauge this time. Not at all.
This book is a must-have for any crochet library.
