I just finished this afghan, I had it in my head I wanted to do one only in red and white, with a variety of sized granny type squares.  The big square was adapted from a pattern on Lions Brand website, the small squares were in my old Readers Digest book and the oblong ones I had to make up since I couldn't find anything similar to what I was wanting.  I wanted it to have that crazy quilt look to it, so a lot of the squares didn't match up and I added rows here and there to help give it that crazy look.  I wasn't sure if the whole thing was going to come out semi squared or not, but I don't think it looks too bad, and I love just having it red and white.  I used Genova yarn, it has a really nice feel to it.  Thanks for looking!

Love it!  You can tell it brightens a room.  The piece work is nice and very well balanced.

Omg.  It's like I was in your head of something haha, I like just decided I wanted to make an afghan in two colors of all different granny squares.  I just decided this maybe two days ago.  This is fantastic and looks so warm!

That is funny! Now you have more incentive to do it, since it can be done!  Good luck, I'd like to see yours when it's done.  I don't know if I'd do another one or not, I always get tired of making squares.....

Very Awesome! I had an idea to do something similar to this but I could never quite picture how I wanted it to come together. So thank you for posting the pic,I hope you don't mind if I use it for inspiration on my afghan  Smiley

and you know my favorite thing about crochet is that if it doesn't turn out perfectly square, you can just tug on one of the corners and it will look like it is  Grin

I think the colors really make this. I'm usually particular to those usual granny square afghans, like the one on the couch in Rosanne... haha. But this is really great. The crazy squares + simple color choice. Mhm.
