*** in my blanket i had to adjust the number of drops to get the same look in all four corner. i did it like this: 1 drop in the last 2 spaces at the end of one side of the blanket, 1 drop in the corner and 1 drop in de first space of the next side of the blanket, then 2 sc in the next space, continue with the pattern.
