Dāna is a pali word for generosity or giving—specifically the act of unconditional generosity without the expectation of receiving anything in return.

This granny square blanket is made by crocheting granny squares in three different sizes, then sewing them together. A border is added to the blanket after all the squares are sewn.

Pattern includes written and charted instructions for the granny squares, and a diagram for assembly. All crochet terms are American.
