I like the stitches used in this afghan. It is made of big blocks, red alternating with green. The stitches are easy and fast to make. I cannnot wait to do this project.

I love this pattern. I've seen it referred to as "Box stitch" and I've used it for several projects. It's kind of a take off from the traditional granny but gives a more solid fabric which holds it's shape nicer than a granny (which I always find stretches a lot). Very nice. . .
