Crochet Circle Center Granny Square Pattern

I’ve been getting a few inquires about the granny square my appliques are shown on. I thought I would repost it here, as it was kinda buried in with my moose applique pattern.

When I first started this blanket, there was a pattern from Maria’s Blue Crayon for this type of granny square, however I was thoroughly confused by it so I did a TON of research and finally found a YouTube video by Catalina Stan that was the circle center granny square pattern I was looking for. The stitch counts were different, making the granny square a different size than what I needed, but I was able to figure out my own worded pattern that I could easily follow for this. Here it is:
