Seed Blocks - 12 inch Afghan Square

Ten years ago, I designed this 12 inch square knitted design.  Since then, several people have used my design for afghans and dishcloths.

I'm proud of this design, and decided to share it here on my blog, to make it easier to copy.  Up until now, it's been on my Flickr page, which is not as easy to navigate.

Maybe one day, I'll go one step further, and make it into a fancy document. Who knows? It depends entirely upon my mood and energy level. (tee-hee)

I was wondering if this could be used for a crib blanket.

Hi Linda!
Of course you could use this pattern for a crib blanket.
Each square is 12 inches, so just make as many squares as you need, then seam them together.
