Sizing: This blanket is written as a baby blanket. For a larger blanket, work extra squares in your preferred color combinations until reaching your desired size. Note that this will require additional yardage than listed in the Materials section.

Stitch Counts: Stitch counts are listed after each rnd in italics.

Turning Chain: The turning chain does not count as a stitch except for Rnd 7 of your square where the ch-3 counts as 1 dc.
