Free Granny Square Pattern

Here is the pattern for my granny square that I posted a while back. It is not perfect, probably confusing as heck so if you have questions or need clarification just let me know. Sorry in advance for my potentially poor pattern writing on this one. I call it the Viesta Granny Square Pattern because the colors remind me of a fiesta but the pattern is full of v-stitches. Enjoy!
