Patchwork Afghan

This is my latest crochet endeavor, and I must say it was an enjoyable one. So much so that I am planning on making another one or two.  Figure I can use some leftover yarns with this pattern.  I got the idea to do this from this blog post.  I’m not sure if I did it exactly as instructed, but whatever I did seemed to work well for me…so I am happy about that.  :)  This afghan is approx. 30”x30”.  I started it Friday evening and finished it late this afternoon.  It worked up quite quickly.  Joining squares this way is perfect for me.  I get too impatient making squares first and then having to join them later.  Joining as you go suits me just fine. :)

For the edging I just did my own thing…a row of dc and then a row of dc with a picot every five stitches.
