I started by making about 41 of square A:
Then I made 20 of square B:
Then I needed to make 20 of square C (yes there is a difference between squares B and C):
Then once they were sewn together I crocheted around the edge with the normal stitch, then I did a reverse crochet all the way around. It looks really neat, though I am afraid that the photo doesn't show it very well.
I managed to finish this blanket about three days before Erik was born. Only I felt like I probably ought to hold on to it until they came down to visit on their way to Mississippi. Otherwise it would get to their Idaho house a couple days after they left... which would then take that much longer to be forwarded on to their new home.
I am rather proud of my self for doing this project. This was very time consuming, there were a couple times I wanted to quit, because it didn't seem like I would ever reach the end. But all in all it was a ton of fun to do!
