Each square is five rounds and there are 30 squares here altogether, which is about the right size for a cot. I hope my brother (C)and his wife (S) actually like it now! The baby's due on 31 January but S has an inkling that it might well arrive on 17 January along with the full moon. She's planning on a home birth in a large pool. Jolly good luck to her, I say.
As I'd finished this yesterday afternoon, I thought I'd like to have a go at making some circles now instead of squares so went searching for instructions but I got side-tracked when I found these images of 'circular' blankets:
How unbelievably inspirational are these! Granny squares (i.e., the cot blanket's made of) are very nice but can be a bit, well, old-fashioned (and that's where you jazz it up with interesting colour combinations) but those circular/amoeba shapes are utterly fantastic, and as for the colours......
I think I've found my new crochet project!
