  5. Very nice motif but I'm wondering how I can make an afghan out of this pattern. I'd have to make a bunch of little squares to fill in the spaces. Would I make these 10 stitches wide, 11 stitches wide, or maybe 9 inches wide and however many rows to make it square?

    1. Hi anonymous - I think 11 sts would fit perfectly. :)

    2. I used rows 3 to 6 only with 4 corners for the square and it fits great
