This is a pretty afghan for the holiday season. It is an easy pattern too. This could worked on anywhere by making a square while waiting for someone, listening to a favorite tv show or on a trip. Later when time is available the squares cab be assembled. This would be nice for dcor or as a gift.

Sorry, I notice words changed after I hit enter. can decor
