Triangle Windows Afghan Square

Pattern Created by Sandi Marshall

Using v-stitches -
Triangle shaped openwork portions combined with solid sections form this design, which is easy to crochet. This square is the same size as my Min and Max Triangles Square, Triangle Trio Square, Little Triangles Square and my Semicircles Square, so these could be combined within an afghan that is made of joined squares.
