A twisted take on the traditional granny square afghan, this blanket is a fresh palette for your imagination. The squares and diamonds are worked individually, so the project can be taken anywhere and worked on in spare moments. The pattern itself is easy and the color possibilities are endless. In superwash merino, this afghan is soft, warm, and easy to care for.
