Put a Fork in it...Done!
I finished my "RozGhan" over the weekend. This will not be given to my Mom until the holidays, but I wanted to use up some of the blue and green yarn in my stash NOW!

The pattern I used for each square is called "Willow." I love this square pattern. It's fun to do, not repetitive, holds my interest, but is not difficult. I also love crocheting solid color squares. They are fast and require weaving in only two ends...the beginning of the motif and at the end.
|The "Willow" Square|
I did crochet a multi-color square for the bottom corner. This pattern looks like a sunburst to me, so I used sun colors for the "signature" square. For this reason, the afghan reminds me of a decorative quilt pattern.
|Sunburst with a Chocolate Box Edge|
I wanted a simple border, so after I finished the 6-row by 8-row group of squares, I crocheted one row of single crochet around the whole piece. THEN, I crocheted a 3-row Chocolate Box granny pattern around the entire afghan. I think this simple border is quite effective.
All specs for this afghan are found on my Ravelry page.
