the start of my blanket!

well, because of my course (fashion knitwear) I'm constantly trying out different stitches and patterns. This is resulting in me having a growing number of squares and nothing to do with them.
I have therefore decided i'm going to knit a square in each stitch and then sew everything together to make a blanket.
Here is my first square!
Basket stitch.
