Can this be made with Red Heart Super Saver Yarn? I am making one for myself in the Medusa and one for a co-worker in Spectrum, but I am looking for a less expensive yarn.

I was going to upload a photo of my finished afghan but the site will not take anything over 1.0 mb. My photos are 2.9 mb. :(

AAAAHHHH!!! The pattern is gone! I know how to make a granny square so that is not the problem, I just need to know what yarn is used in this photo! I absolutely love and want to use it but can't find that info anywhere!! :(

If eash square is 4 rows = 4 inches, then 3 squares = 1 foot, so reduce it by 3 squares across / 3 squares down

I want to reduce the size of this afghan by about 1 foot. Any ideas on how many squares that would be?

I'm so sorry to be such a bother, but I meant to also say that there were no instructions in this pattern as to how to 'connect' the squares at the end when your all finished with making the squares. Can we just put them together with sc's? Thanks again!!!

I did find the pattern, but unfortunately, it wasn't too well 'written' (at least for people like myself who are not quite up to the advanced level yet). Part of the instructions are as follows... (in Rnd 4 for ex:)... It reads... Ch3, 2 dc, ch1, skip to next space *3dc, ch1, sk to next space 3dc, ch1,3dc,ch2,3dc,ch1 (corner made) continue from around and join. Slip stitch to corner. I'm assuming that where it reads "skip to next space *3dc" they mean to 'skip to the next space where you already did the 3 dc's' and then continue with the rest of the directions (i.e. ch1, 3dc, ch2, 3dc and so on). Then where it says "continue from"... are we supposed to continue from the * and then go around or what?? I'm confused at this point. Usually, in a pattern, when it reads... "continue from *, it means to continue from that point in the pattern and finish 'around' the piece in that same way. Otherwise I think I can make out the rest of the pattern. Also... Is there a difference between a dc (in a pattern) and a DC (in the same pattern). This pattern shows DC in some instructions and dc in the instructions. Were these just 'typos' or is there some method to this??? Thank you so much though for the patterns you provide for those of us who are still 'learning' on their own. Please help me with this one though becaues I really would like to make this afghan for my Goddaughter who just lost her mother (and there was a rainbow that appeared outside her mother's hospital window a few moments after she took her last breath). I really would like to get this made correctly for her. :) Thanks.
