If you use an H hook and 2 dc per graph square with a WW yarn like Red Heart, this will come out j u s t about twin mattress top sized. If you want larger, you can add several rows of dc border around it, or use a larger hook (but I don't know how big it will turn out if you do!). If you complete this, I'd love to see a photo of the finished product! I haven't made this myself so I can't share information about yarn amounts. I wold make one suggestion: that you work it from the short side. That way all those color changes in the middle will not happen all at once. That's very frustrating to work through. It won't change the size of your finished product. Oh, and do NOT double the rows, just 2 dc per graph square will do it! I hope you enjoy!
If you've never done intarsia crochet (the method I prefer to tapestry, where the colors will show through when you carry them through on projects like this one), please see my series on intarsia crochet starting at http://kendrascrochetedcreations.blogspot.com/2015/03/grad-afghan-progress-day-1.html
Thanks for stopping in and have a great day!
