I've never tried to do an adult size blanket before, so after some "encouragment" (aka:complaining) from my boyfriend i decided to try one. I don't know exactly how many stitches it is, but it's more than 230. I found to pattern in the book 200 knitted blocks. It's a very simple pattern 2 rows each color, blue is stockinette and brown is garter.
My "model" is my Staffordshire Bull Terrier Winnie.
