Just finished this purple afghan for the seniors.
Half are granny squares and half are double crochet squares, with a shell border around the whole blanket. It looks like I used different kinds of thread but they are all the same. I think some of the skeins were tighter wound than the others.
In response to the comment from vettech. Thank you.
Its just the basic granny square. With 6 double stitches in the corners and 3 double stitches in the other spaces.
