PATTERN NOTES

Blanket starts in the center and works out in a rectangular granny square. Color changes happen at the end of each ball of yarn, rather than at a specific point in the yarn. When only 6” remain of the current ball of yarn, complete the stitch in the new color, working over ends to fasten them in the work.
