sorry but this pattern is hard to understand.

You can never ever go wrong with a Granny Square project. This is a great beginner project because the blanket is a single piece. If you have mastered the art of changing color yarn, this is the project for you. If you are not comfortable with changing yarn colors, use a single color or limit the times you change colors. Granny squares are great!

The other day while I was talking to a neighbor she learned that I knew how to crochet. She brought me a picture of a throw she had as a child and I recognized it as a granny square pattern. Not really sure about the actual pattern used back then, but I think that she would like this one as she is asking me to make one for her.
