This is four of the squares joined together. After being blocked the new combined square measures approximately 35.5cm (14 inches) across.



This is a closer view of a single square. When blocked it measures approximately 18cm (7 inches) across. It was worked with Elena #10 crochet cotton on 1.5mm needles.
