Since I posted my Breaking Bad afghan pattern over a year ago, one thing has bugged me. I’ve always wanted to make it more square than I originally had. But once I posted it, things kinda took off and I sold a bunch of them and just didn’t have time to sit down and write up a pattern for a square one. Finally, I found some time, and MAN! I wish I would have done this sooner because it didn’t take me nearly as much time as I thought. I didn’t even have to play around with the pattern at all.
The new pattern actually looks mostly the same as the old one. The new one is just square and the old one is rectangular. The square one works up to about 80″ and works great as a blanket for the bed!
