The squares are each 6x6, including the black border, with a total size of 10 by 13 squares.

One center is completely gone, although the thread is still dangling. 3 or 4 centers are starting to go, either the center motif or one of the corners in the next level. One outside corner (well, inside the black border) is completely gone. 3 or 4 corners are starting to go. It's about a dozen, at first glance.



I know I'm late to this thread. I know you said you don't crochet, but if and when you do, it sounds like the starting loop was made backwards. The knot part of the beginning loop should be made with the cut end of the yarn and the actual loop should be made with the uncut end of yarn. If it's done the other way around, the loop can come free and the afghan unravels as you're seeing now. I can't help much on fixing it online (I could help in person), but I can help prevent it from happening again.
