I have just finished my latest crochet project – a striped square blanket. The idea for this blanket started with my love of stripes and colors (and the fact that I had a lot of assorted yarn of my grandmothers) . Out of that came the striped squares.
After a while of doing these squares I got a little worried that the afghan design would become too noisy and messy. That led me to do some simple and plain white squares to mix with the striped ones. I think the result turned our pretty well:
When arranging the squares I found inspiration in quilt design and ended up organizing the squares by color.
