    I like how you put 4 of the 6″ squares together to make a larger square. The color combos are great. Since you say that you only did them to 4″ does that mean that you did not do the entire square for the pattern?

    I’m still working on the Mandala, I think that is the one, from Jan. I did manage to figure out what my problem was, I have to have it quiet as I count for that one or I mess up.

    I was thinking of using the 12″ squares to make the boy an afghan but I can tell that they all are a bit too open for his tastes. He seems to want one that is more dense.

    You’re correct, Elaine….I did not complete the individual squares.
    I also agree that most of these squares are too “open” for a manly blanket. I think the Mandala is a beautiful square and might even be my favorite so far. I had to have it quiet, too….lots of counting with that one.
