PATTERN NOTES

LET’S KEEP IN TOUCH

STEP 1: BLANKET GRID

With 2 strands of color #1 joined together

Ch any EVEN number until you reach your desired width.

Row 1: Dc in 5th ch from hook (sk sts count as 1 dc + ch 1), *ch 1,  skip next ch,  1 dc in next ch*. Rep from *to* across to last ch. End with 1 dc in last ch (so 2 dc at end of row). Ending stitch count should be 2 less than original chain count.

Row 2: Ch 4 (counts as dc + ch 1), turn; *skip next dc,   dc in next ch-1 sp,  ch 1*.  Rep from *to* across to last ch-1 sp, dc in last ch-1 sp.  End with 1 dc in top of ch 3. Rep row 2 for a total of 5 rows.

Switch to color #2 and work another 5 rows.

Cont to work in stitch pattern, switching colors every 6th row, until desired length is achieved.

Note: Length of blanket will grow considerably, as the stitches will stretch a lot.

You will end with a “grid-like” piece of work.

 

STEP 2: CREATING & WEAVING CHAINS

You’ll be creating longs chains that will be weaved through each ch-1 space.

With 2 strands joined together

A.    Join yarn to last dc made at lower edge. Determine number of chains needed by using the following calculations:   Beg chain count_   x   5 Rows  =  ____  (Ex: 100 chs  X  5 rows = 500 chs).

B.   Create long chain.

C.   Fasten off.

D.   Thread chain through yarn needle.

E.    Weave chain, from left to right, under and over 5 rows, in ch-1 sps to create woven appearance.

F.    Fasten off.

Note: After creating the 1st long chain, you’ll have a better of idea of the exact number of chains you’ll need.    Add or omit chs as needed for the remaining 5 row blocks.

G.   Add next color to last chain made and create next long chain.

H.   Continue to create long chains and weave into ch-1 sps, until you’ve reached the end.

 

STEP 3: BORDER

A.   Work one row of sc down both sides of blanket or any edging that you choose (Showing with an additional 5 rows down each side in white).

  

OPTIONS

  1. If you have enough of (2) color left over, use 1st color to create 5 more rows to your blanket and the 2nd color to create your chain.

  2. use 1st color to create rows down long side of blanket (See: White rows down both sides of my blanket) and the 2nd color to create your chain

  3. If you have enough of EACH color left over, add fringes to each ch-1 space on short ends of blanket. Remember: The goal is to use up all your scrap yarn!

 

 STEP 4: FINISHING

 Sew in loose ends.
