    Do you have the pattern for the granny square shown in the gingham pattern afghan? Love it. Looks like a nice simple granny square. Would love to make it.

      Hi Teri,
      We don’t have the pattern for that particular square, but any basic granny square pattern should do the trick. Happy crocheting!

    The blue and grey gingham blanket looks very similar to one I have done and could possibly be my photo 🙂
