Regarding the number of squares to make for this afghan - I think if you are making a baby afghan it would only need to be 12 of each color thus making an afghan that is 6 squares by 6 squares...this would be approximately 36 inches square. That is a good size. The one that is 21 of each color would be much bigger like for an adult or something like that. Really make it the size you want but maybe this will help everyone. I didn't write the pattern so I'm not expert.

I haven't made this yet but plan to. I like the fact that you have given us a closer look of the pattern, you should do this with everyone. Thanks for all your patterns.

I agree with Lizzitish - according to the coloured picture on this page there should only be 12 of each CC colour - but if you click on the 'Graph' link listed under Materials, it takes you to another page where the design does in fact have 21 of each, so it seems that's where the error has occurred

I like this pattern a lot, but I noticed what I think is a typo. Should it read 12 in the following line instead of 2L? SQUARES: (make 2l of each CC)? Please advise....I am planning to start this soon.....thanks - love this website.... Liz
