Anchor's Aweigh Square

While I am posting, I will finally post my pattern for an afghan square that I wrote last summer for Ship's Support. I was frustrated at not being able to find very many knitted squares appropriate for guys. So I wrote one. It should knit up to 7 inches square in worsted weight yarn.

This could be made with worsted weight yarn and an H hook for a larger blanket. Just repeat rows 2 - 11 as many times as you need to get the length you want.
