Tried this craft? What did you think?

Thought this patternwas great. Almost passed it up when I seen that it said KNITTING NEEDLES were required. Decided to look at the entire pattern. Found out that that must have been a mistake as it is definitely a CROCHET PATTERN !! Perhaps an edit could be made to the directions?? Thanks.

Thanks so much for the head's up - the project is now fixed. - Julia from FaveCrafts

These squares look terrific. I'm going to make a pair for a charity project and consider making the entire afghan.
