The Simple Square . . . crafting with grandma

The Simple Square is found in the book, 300 Classic Blocks for Crochet Projects, is very quick and easy to make and makes a wonderful addition to your afghan!

As you work on this afghan project with your grandchildren ask them which square has been their favorite. Ask them about the books they've been reading, talk with them about how things are going with their friends and if they have any special events coming up. As your grandchildren look back on their lives, they are sure to remember the time spent learning to crochet and working on this afghan with their grandma as a time when they were able to connect with their grandma in very special ways!
