Crochet Afghan Motif

This is the third pattern in my crochet afghan motif collection, if you are new to crochet and are looking for a quick project to practice with, granny square’s are ideal.

Turn them into blankets, throws etc. for your own home, friends, charities or fairs, many crocheters make these as they are a great way to use up all those odd ends of yarn that you have over from your other projects.
