Quick and colorful, this blanket spins out from the center in growing blocks . . . red, blue, yellow, green, orange. If a beach ball were square (and flat), it might resemble this! I find that I will keep on crocheting with the goal of adding "just one more color", which made this a fast project! Once you complete the first five blocks, you will "get it" and it will become something you can without your full focus . . . what we call "idiot crochet" in my group! GAUGE 10 st x 16 rows = 4"
