Large Circle in Square Blanket

My goodness! I finally finished this sucker! Between my work schedule and the stinking shoulder issues I’ve been dealing with, it probably took twice if not three times as long for me to make. In any case, I’m very very happy with how it came out. I don’t even mind the imperfections that I found when I was seaming the squares together. Besides no will notice them but me, any way!

I hope the pattern is easy enough to read and I’ve created a charted graph to help visualize the pattern. I am admittedly not that great at written patterns yet, so if you have any suggestions or corrections, please let me know in a comment below.

  1. Thank you for this pattern & the chart helps IF there are mistakes. So sorry to hear about your shoulder pain! Getting older isn’t for sissies! Crocheting & knitting is supposed to be therapeutic! Blessings!

    1. I usually start with the corners. I’ll do 2 of the 4 double treble crochet and end the last round in the same corner space with the chain 3 and then slip stitch into the top of the starting treble. Let me know if this helps.

      I not to sure, but I ended up using 12 different colors. As far a skeins go, a fair guess would be 24 of the color (2 skeins of each) and 6-8 of the white. Definitely a guesstimate, though.
