I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Does your cast-on edge have the same number of stitches as your last row?  When I first began crocheting, I would accidentally add extra stitches and only discovered them when I bothered to count them. You could try blocking the blanket; here's some info on how to do it if you're unfamiliar:

Hope that helps, and welcome to Craftster!

I am trying to navigate the Craftster Community, Crochet and can't figure out what to click on to see your photo. I haven't been here in a long time as I didn't know how to bookmark my sites. I am back and better at organizing my forums. My first attempt at crocheting was a baby Afghan blanket. iweararedhat.blogspot.com. After crocheting the first three panels I started over as each panel was an inch longer than the previous. After crocheting two panels for the second time, I ran out of yarn. I purchased more white yarn and finished the last two panels. Although my panels were perfect in length I had my yarn (came in a kit) for so long the yarn had yellowed. I did all five panels over.

I have become a great grandmother to seven babies in just two years. I had given away my stash of hooks (given to me long ago) and am now wanting to crochet again. My current practice squares are now a couple of inches larger than than the five inch I am striving for. I don't remember a thing about the hooks I used for my first blanket. I have sent for new hooks and will try different sizes hooks and yarns to see what I can do. In the meantime, I am trying to figure out how to read my pattern instructions. My wonderful SIL was near ninety and passed away years ago--she could no longer crochet but she would do just enough to teach me. Even then, I couldn't keep up with her fingers so me gave me a book on how to crochet a potholder. I really did not want to do a potholder but that was the only way a could see what her fingers were doing. I never did finish that potholder.
