C2C Pixel Graph Dog Blanket Crochet Pattern and Video | Posh Pooch Designs

I have been working on this new Blanket for some time.
I would finish a square, then set it down.
I liked the Heart, Paw Print and Dog Bone,
 but was having trouble deciding on 
what the 4th square should be.
Then as I was sitting there sipping coffee,
 it came to me...
Design a Coffee Mug Square!
I really like how it turned out.
So Happy to finally have it finished! 
The Blanket is designed with Red Heart With Love.
this Yarn is perfect, it is strong, soft and washable.

I also made a Video to help you.
 The Video has tips about:
 Reading graphs, 
Starting the C2C,
 Changing Colors
 and Descreasing.
