Here are some details about my project:

What materials did you use? Acrylic double knitting yarn (I think it may be called "worsted" in some places).

What are you most proud of? Making something very traditional (the black edges to each of the blocks always makes the bright colours look even brighter) and also making a fancy edge. The whole project was really simple and it kept me occupied in the evenings in front of the television (and was good for my figure as it stopped me from raiding the 'fridge every hour!).

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Choose the brightest colours you can find. I have a stash of really brilliantly coloured yarn that I use for knitting toys, and that was very useful.

Thank you. There are two "rainbow" squares amongst the others - one with the colours going in from the outside to the centre, and the other from the centre to the outside. I thought I'd like to make a whole blanket like that one day, but doubt if I'll get around to it.

It's gorgeous Pat! I really like it, in fact seeing this makes me want to start crocheting again, it's been many years! Although you may not have been able to give to your mum, I am sure you feel a special closeness with her each time you wrap it around you.

Thank you, Tanya. It was really easy to make - you can do must as much or as little as you like, using squares like this.

Thank you - I'm not very good at crochet, but as long as I keep going round in circles (or squares) it seems to work out okay.

I have found you can do a lot with circles or squares in crochet !
