Kinnedy Nichelle Afghan Square
Do you need a recipe for a mind-blowing afghan? Obviously! Use a couple of blocks of the same kind in order to create a structural surface, continue adding concentric rows of stitches at the edges, or pair it with other intricate squares instead. You can use just one for decoration as well!
