i love this pattern on round 12 as i type. i had a question.. how many of these squares make a throw blanket? or lapghan?

You can make it as large as you like. Four across by five long? It's entirely up to you. It depends on what it will be used for. There is a link that tells you the normal sizes of things. Let me post it here.
