This is the crochet project I got burned out doing in September. Ack, such dull colors (to me who likes the wild colors used for my Babette Blanket!), but I thought they would be good for a blanket for my stepson Bryan. The squares are the same style as used for Babette which is a common variation of the traditional granny square.

Because I don't like the join showing on one side of each square, I join in a corner instead (see the photo of the red square - there's no line down the center of any of the 4 sides). The square pattern is published as square #3 Square Target in the book "200 Crochet Blocks for Blankets, Throws, and Afghans" by Jean Eaton - AND, it is square #77 in "99 Granny Squares to Crochet" (with this mod: make each corner 2dc ch 2 2dc) by Leisure Arts. There is also an online version of the square pattern called "No Seam Granny Square" at Chez Crochet (scroll to bottom of page).

A chart detailing the color, size, and number of squares is below.
