Make a total of 24 squares as follows:
Pink dream (161): 6 squares
Yellow/pink mix (903), 3 squares
Guacamole (151): 3 squares
Texmex (153): 3 squares
Fun lilac (911): 3 squares

The squares may be work in different sizes depending on how large you want the blanket. All 24 squares for a blanket must be the same size!
Blanket measuring 80 x 120 cm / 31½" x 47½": work each square until there are 184 sts on needle, each square measures approx 20 x 20 cm / 8'' x 8".
Blanket measuring approx 100 x 150 cm / 39½" x 59": work each square until there are 232 sts on needle, each square measures approx 25 x 25 cm / 9 3/4" x 9 3/4".

Worked in the round on double pointed needles/circular needle.
Cast on 8 sts on double pointed needles size 3.5 mm / US 4 with Fabel. Distribute sts on 4 double pointed needles with 2 sts per needle. K 1 round and insert a marker in st no 1, 3, 5 and 7. K the sts with marker on every round and work remaining sts in GARTER ST - see above.
Continue in the round, AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 st each side of each st with marker (= 8 inc) on every other round. Inc by making 1 YO, on next round work YO into back of loop to avoid a hole. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! Change to circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 when there are enough sts. Continue like this until there are a total of 184 (or 232 sts) on needle. Bind off.

Use the thread end from cast on to tighten the center of square tog as follows: Sew thread through the outer loop of each of the 8 sts cast on at the beg, tighten the thread and fasten on the WS.
Sew the squares tog as shown in Fig.1 (number in square = color number). Sew edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam.
