Beginning with the November 2018 issue, each issue of Simply Knitting will include patterns for 2 afghan squares. Follow along to create your own special blanket. The suggested yarn comes in 36 colors, so you’re bound to find your favorite shades!

Each finished square measures approx. 7.25”, and the 36-square blanket measures approx. 47.25”.

Square 1 is a reversible heart square. The blanket calls for Square 1 to be made three times, in Yarns A, E, and H. When constructing your blanket you can choose which side of Square 1 you’d prefer to have as the “right” side, as the square is reversible!
