Irregular Square Afghan

By Nancymccarroll
Never having been a big fan of acrylic fiber, except for the fact that it washes quickly and dries just as fast, I just ordered a batch of acrylics from Lions Brand to be used on a new project.   I am anxious to start an afghan called the Irregular Squares Afghan, a free crochet pattern available on this page with colors chosen from an extensive palette of colors offered online.
This is a snap of a finished afghan, courtesy of Lion Brand.  I am not interested in the colors it was worked it (in fact, yuck), but I like how it is put together.

Each of the six squares making up the afghan not only is comprised of four separate colors, but each square is also put together differently, hence the irregularity of the pattern.  If not ingenious, it certainly will hold one's attention while constructing the 30" x 45" throw.  Here is the pattern for just one of the squares:

Now the fun part (for me) is selecting colors to match the decor of the area where the small throw will most be used.
This is a collage of the colors in our living room, including pictures of furniture, paintings and accessories.It lacks the brick red color of the entry wall and all the green plants, but you get the idea.

And here are the colors of the acrylic yarn chosen from the Lion's Brand palette that will be used for the project.
If this works up as quickly as others tell me it will, maybe I'll get cracking on a second one as a gift.

Now, if the post will just hurry up and bring that yarn!
