Round and Round crochet blanket

 I think this is one of the projects which took me so long to figure out the right number of stitches and the correct count.

I had to repeat it several times before I could get the required result, one, because I wanted the circles to look perfectly round and that's really challenging every time I'm making a project with a circle and two, getting the right  number of stitches to turn it into a square, really exhausting.

The result is good but could be better, I will definitely do it again and make sure it is perfect, but for now here is the written pattern for the round and round blanket :)
