Crochet With Me!! Winter CAL 2015… Week 12 Finale

Crochet with Me!! Winter 2015 Crochet-A-Long Retro Afghan is now complete!!

I love my new Retro Style Afghan… It is colorful, whimsical and it was so much fun to make!!  I hope you will love yours just as much!!  Granny’s Circle in Square, Chevrons, Stripes and Blocks brought this fun Afghan to life… Easy stitching techniques and bright bold colors make it pop!!
