Gauge: Each square is about 5 inches across.

Materials: Scraps of medium worsted weight and an I/9 (5.50) mm crochet hook.

The lengths will need to be at least:

Please note, these lengths are estimates and it is best to  have a little more yarn than what a pattern calls for.

1 yard long for the first round.

2 yards for round 2.

2 ½ yards for round 3.

3 ½ yards for round 4.

6 ½ yards each for rounds 5 & 6.

Note: Hide tails after each round.

Make 60 squares for a 36 in square lap blanket (it will be bigger with a border)

Make 80 squares for a 48 x 66 inch afghan.

 

Round 1: Create magic loop, ch 1, make 12 sc in magic loop. Join to first sc. Draw center hole closed.

Assemble squares making 8 rows of 11 squares. I suggest using the continuous join, however you can join them whichever way you like! How-to video play list for joining can be found here:
