The focus of the pattern is to assemble a blanket. Measurements are described for two sizes, baby and throw blanket. Another thing to consider is the size of the granny square. In the pattern, squares of 2.5 inches by 2.5 inches were used. If your model is a little bigger, you will need to increase the amount of stitches until you complete the side of the square.

Did it get complicated? Don’t worry, it’s pretty simple to understand. The stitches are simple and you’ll soon realize if you need to do a few more or not. So, before anything else, come and read the pattern that is available on Just Be Crafty.
