    1. I love this idea! I’ve been wanting to do this on an afghan I’m going to make for my mother-in-law. I feel like this gives me the freedom to use a very pretty pattern that isn’t very solid (has holes) yet with a backing will still be nice and warm.

    2. I do a lot of granny squares, and never had an issue with warmth. We do get an occasional cold day or three. I get the extra warmth thing, but there has to be other reasons. I, personally, think a backing ruins the look of the afghan. I don’t want to see the back of the fabric peeking through the pattern on an afghan.

    3. Not everyone lives in Texas. Some crochet patterns have a lot of holes like in the example. So backing it just makes it a warmer afghan to snuggle up in. Very nice during winter months.
