This is a Traditional Granny Square Blanket I just finished.  It's made up of 40 squares. 10 have 1 color pattern and the other 30 have another. Same colors just a different order. They are 8 inches in size, 6 rows (not including the white border around each making the final row). It's hard to see because of the sewing.

 

 

There are 2 sets of instructions because in case someone's not a fan of all the repeats then the second pattern instruction has everything written out WITHOUT repeats. I even get turned around with all the repeats. I have it labeled so you can find it easily.

 

 

It's 62 by 41 inches.

 

Yarn: Caron 1 pound, tan and blue

         Red Heart White

Hook's: I (squares) H (Sewing)
