There are quite a few different shades of pink.
Forty eight squares and a generous border. The finished blanket is approximately thirty six inches wide and Forty eight inches long.
I like this pattern and crochet it a lot, the squares are the perfect for carrying around in my handbag and at knitting group where I can chat without having to concentrate on a pattern. This blanket has all the squares crocheted together which has created a ridge around each square which adds some additional definition to the quilt.
