Pattern is a guideline posted in a blog post and (currently) not available as an individual pattern. Read the blog post for details.

From the blog: First the disclaimer: This is not a Proper Pattern. Buncha Squares is just not that kind of blanket. A couple of the squares I used were experiments (using--ACK!-short rows), and I’m not including instructions for those because (a) I don’t really remember what I did and (2) wonky squares do create additional sewing-up challenges. One down side to this approach is that my yarn quantity is only an estimate based on the weight of the finished blanket (a little over 2 pounds). The up side is huge if you like to play around with your knitting. You really can’t screw this up. If a square comes out too big or too small, you can fix it easily in the sew-up phase. (To paraphrase a wise quilter, “If it’s too big, unravel it; if it’s too small, knit a few more garter ridges.”)
