This is a pattern I’ve had in my library for a long time. I bought it shortly after I learned to crochet and made a small 24-square lap blanket. Even then, I was determined I would someday work up the entire blanket. Now that I’ve done it, I don’t know that I’ll do it again, but I am very pleased with the result.
