Frida's Flower Blanket part 1

Two weeks ago I downloaded the first pattern for the Janie Crow crochet along with some trepidation.  I'm still learning how to read crochet patterns and still feel like a bit of a beginner so wasn't sure what I was getting into.
A design layout shows you exactly what you need to make and where it will go

It started well when I visited the site to download the pattern and had a choice of UK or US terminology. (I prefer US and wasn't sure if I'd have to translate my pattern before I started.)  And when I started reading the pattern it was beautifully laid out, easy to read, with lots of photos.

So here are my first set of 'squares' all ready so I can download the second part of the pattern next week.  I know that they will get harder as we go, but I also feel I can trust the patterns after this first set.  I'm looking forward to learning a whole bunch and can't wait to see the finished blanket.

Half 'squares' for the edge
