This blanket has been inspired by the wonderful and diverse varieties of sunflowers, to create a splash of sunshine in any room.

Gauge is not essential for this project. With the suggested 4ply yarn and a 3.5mm hook, the whole blanket measures 43 inches. The central square is 15 inches across, the medium squares are 7.5 inches, and the smallest squares are 3.75 inches.

With DK weight yarn and a 4.5mm hook, the whole blanket measures 65 3/4 inches.

With Aran yarn and a 5mm hook, the whole blanket has a projected size of 67 inches.

If your central square is smaller, your blanket will be correspondingly smaller. If your square is bigger, your blanket will be bigger. Use what feels comfortable to you with the yarn you choose. I tend to have a tight gauge; use your own judgement as to whether you want to go up or down a hook size, or even two!

This pattern has been tested by others. However we are all only human; please do let me know about any errors you find.
