Rainbow Squares Blanket
This is an afghan from the book "Easy Afghans for Knitters", which I found from the Royal Yarns International website. The yarn I used was Plymouth Encore Rimini Rainbow. It was very easy to do; the pattern calls for knitting 24 squares in stockinette stitch, the sewing them together using a backstitch seam.

There are a lot of beautiful afghans in this book. The patterns look easy to follow, too.
