As I started crocheting the 65th square of my Granny blanket, I was struck by the fact that I had not yet used the colour combination I'd chosen for that particular square!
I have 13 colours (plus cream for the centres). Does that mean 13x13=169 different colour combinations? Now, maths was never my forte at school so the clever-with-numbers people out there can laugh at me! But then since you can also reverse the order of colours - ie. which colour you choose for the second & third and the fourth & fifth rounds (there are 5 rounds altogether - first round being always cream), does that mean 169x2???
Come on guys help me out here! I'd like to know how many different squares I can make with two colours per square, 13 colours, and the variation of using which colour first and which second. Does that make sense, can anyone give me an answer??

Meanwhile the blanket grows…
and it's already nice to snuggle under as I work on it.
...That's when my son's not stealing it!
The mix of cheerful colours
brightens up our grey January…
