We would like to thank you for taking your time to crochet with us, and we hope this ebook will give you some hints and ideas as to how to layout your central squares for the various sizes of blankets you could make.

Please note:  
The extra 6" calculated includes a total of 6" to the length and a total of 6" width.

Here are some ideas for laying out the squares you may need for the size you choose to make. Be aware that these are only suggestions. The blanket we are making is Crib size, 30" x 36". You may, of course, lay out your individual blanket as you please, with any many or as few squares and rounds of bordering stitches. In fact, it would be great to see some of your creativity in this! All sizes can be adjusted or rounded up or down.

Master Grid
This grid is for reference only. The following grids are sized to the size of the blanket chosen.
This grid can be used to decide how many granny squares you wish to have on your blanket, assuming that you are using 6 inch granny squares.

The color grid page is for reference. This is the suggested number of granny
squares for the 2015 Mystery Cal in sizes other than the 30 x 36
that we will be making. The grid in the middle, each rose colored square
represents one 6x6 inch granny square. The pink rectangle represents
the edge of the blanket. The white between the pink
and the rose squares represents the rows around the squares and the border.
