I used the dark green in the end, it just seemed to go better when I went to Mothercare to check out the collection in real life. I tend to make these squares in stages; all the middles first, then the second round, then the third and finally the white outside rounds. It's easier to ensure I'm getting a mix and balance of colours in the squares.Little Tin Bird's technique. I'm not a fan of square blankets, they seem to be less useful to me so I added another two rows (or ten squares) to oblong it out a bit. Joining these squares is quite a quick process and very satisfying.
