Pattern Notes

1. For the sake of convenience, we will call the colors pink, magenta, and cream.

 

2. You will change colors every 2 rows.

 

3. After each color change, you can either fasten off or drop the yarn to pick up later. In the latter case, the yarn will be loosely carried along the sides and will get hidden when you work the border. 

 

4. To join a new color yarn while working your last dc st, start working your dc as usual and when you have 2 loops left on your hook, YO with the new color and pull through the 2 remaining loops on your hook to complete your dc. 

 

 
With pink color yarn, ch 54. The initial chain can be any multiple of 4+2.
 
 

Row 1: 1sc in the 2nd ch from hook and each ch across to end, turn.—–53 sc

 

 

Row 2: Ch 1, 1 dc in the same st as beginning ch-1, 1 dc in next st and each st across to last st, 1 dc in the last st while joining the next color magenta. Drop the pink color yarn and turn.—–53 dc

 

 

Notes

1. In the next row and every odd rows, the last stitch will not be worked into the last dc but into the beginning ch-1. This will help keep the blanket edge straight. 

 

2. The fpdc sts of Row 3 will be a little difficult as you are working them into sc sts, but all the rows following that will be very quick and easy. 

 

Row 3: With magenta color yarn, ch 1 (does not count as a st), 1 sc in the same st as beginning ch-1, 1 sc in next st, 1 fpdc in the sc st below the next dc, sk 1 st behind the fpdc, *(1 sc in next 3 sts, 1 fpdc in the sc below next dc, sk 1 st behind the fpdc), repeat from * until 2 sts are left, 1 sc in next st, sk the last dc, 1 sc in beginning ch-1, turn.——-40 sc+ 13 fpdc

 

 

Row 6: Ch 1, 1 dc in the same st as beginning ch-1, 1 dc in each st across to last st, 1 dc in last st while joining back the pink color yarn you dropped earlier, turn. —–53 dc
 
 
 
Keep repeating Rows 5 and 6 changing colors every 2 rows until you have 8 magenta stripes and join back the pink color yarn again. 
 
 
 

Last Pink Stripe 

Note: The last pink stripe is adjusted to have the same width and look of the first stripe. The first row will be a repeat of Row 5. 
 
Row 1: With pink color yarn joined, ch 1 (does not count as a st), 1 sc in the same st as beginning ch-1, 1 sc in next st, 1 fpdc in the sc st below the next dc, sk 1 st behind the fpdc, *(1 sc in next 3 sts, 1 fpdc in the sc below next dc, sk 1 st behind the fpdc), repeat from * until 2 sts are left, 1 sc in next st, sk the last dc, 1 sc in beginning ch-1, fasten off but do not turn.-——40 sc+ 13 fpdc
 
 
 
 
Row 2: On the same side you worked Row 1, join pink yarn to the first st of Row 1 with a sl st, 1 sc in the first st, 1 sc in next st, 1 fpsc in next fpdc one row below, sk 1 st behind the fpsc, *(1 sc in next 3 sts,  1 fpsc in next fpdc one row below, sk 1 st behind the fpsc), repeat from * until 2 sts are left, 1 sc in next st, sk the last dc, 1 sc in beginning ch-1, fasten off but do not turn.——-40 sc+ 13 fpsc
 
 
 
Row 3: On the same side you worked your Row 2, join pink yarn to the first st of Row 2 with a sl st, 1 sc in the first st and each st across to end, fasten off. 
 

Border 

Notes

1. I added a border only to the sides of the blanket. You can also work the border around it by putting 3 sc sts in each corner.

 

2. If you opted not to fasten off after every color change you will have strands of yarn running along one side of your blanket. Work around these to conceal them when you are working the sc sts for your border. 

 

3. Work the border on the Right Side of the blanket where you can see the ribbing. 

 

Sl st to the corner and distribute sc sts as evenly as possible until you hit the next corner, and fasten off. Repeat on the other side. 

 

Finishing the Ribbed Crochet Blanket

Weave in any tails left along the back side of the blanket.
