    Directions say this is a 9″ square yet a cast on 152 sts. Is this a big square afghan? It’s very pretty!!!! Then directions say to join but don’t twist. How is this knit? I’m just not getting the directions…
    Thank you for your help!!

      Hi! It’s knit in the round from the outside in, so you cast on 38, place a marker for one corner 4 times. 152 stitches total. Then as you knit you are decreasing at every corner every other round. You’ll need to switch to double pointed needles to finish. Email me if you have any more questions, I’m happy to help!

    Thank you Amy!!!!!! I just wasn’t getting it LOL

    ok Amy….2 more questions and then I’m casting this beauty on… How big would you say this blanket is using knitting worsted and how many skeins if I’m using 4 oz skeins.

    • Amy says:

      Aha, herein lies the rub! I have not yet made a blanket from the squares, my knitting group (among others) are knitting 9″ squares for a local homeless shelter, which are going to be sewn together as a very large group project in the near future. But you could make the blanket any size you’d like. I think that a 4oz. skein of yarn will make 3 squares, if you made a baby blanket you could use 9 or 12 squares to make a blanket either a 27″ square or a 27″x36″ blanket. So for either one of those 3 or 4 skeins would do. What type of blanket were you thinking of making?

    My daughter-in-law wanted a “woobie” which will be a little bigger than a baby blanket to throw on her while she’s watching TV at night time. A baby blanket is roughly 32″x39″ so I’m thinking maybe 20 of these squares might do it, so 7 skeins it seems would make what she wants.

    “SamStuff” on Ravelry. I don’t know when I will start this blanket as I have other things I’m working on, but I might start a square to see how it goes.
