This afghan was inspired by Jan Eaton's "200 Crocheted Squares." I made if from Caron Simply Soft for my sister -- she chose the palette and had input on the design. She loves Granny Squares, but wanted an afghan that wasn't "hole-y" all over. I made a lot of sample squares for her to look at and then we laid out the pattern on graph paper. I had to use H and J hooks because some of the patterns measured larger than others -- generally the tighter weaves needed a J hook to match size with the H hook Granny Squares.
