Deleted: With Peach color yarn and H(5mm) hook, ch 152. You can chain any multiple of 6+2 if you want to make your blanket bigger.

 

Row 1: 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc in each ch across to end, turn.—–151 sc

 

Row 2: Ch 1(does not count as a st here and throughout), 1 sc in first st, 1 sc in next st, *(ch 3, sk 3 sts, 1 sc in next, ch 1, sk 1 st, 1 sc in next), repeat from * to last 5 sts, ch 3, sk 3 sts, 1 sc in last 2 sts, turn.—–25 ch-3 loops

 

Row 3: Ch 1, 1 sc in first st, *(ch 2, 3 dc in next ch-3 space, ch 2, 1 sc in next ch-1 space), repeat from * until you work 3 dc in last ch-3 space, ch 2, sk next sc, 1 sc in last sc, turn.———–25 repeats

 

Row 4: Ch 4(counts as dc+ch 1), 1 sc in next dc, ch 1, sk next dc, 1 sc in next dc, *(ch 3, 1 sc in next dc, ch 1, sk next dc, 1 sc in next dc), repeat from * until you work on top of the last 3dc group, ch 1, 1 dc on top of last sc, turn.——24 ch-3 loops

 

Row 5: Ch 3 ( counts as a dc), 1 dc in adjacent ch-1 space, ch 2, 1 sc in next ch-1 space, *(ch 2, 3 dc in next ch-3 space, ch 2, 1 sc in next ch-1 space), repeat until 1 sc and beginning chain is left, ch 2, 1 dc on top of beginning ch-4, 1 dc in next ch, turn.——–24 repeats.

Row 6: Ch 1(does not count as a st), 1 sc in first st, 1 sc in next dc, *(ch 3, 1 sc in next dc, ch 1, sk 1 dc, 1 sc in next dc), repeat from * until you have worked on top of all 3 dc groups, ch 3, 1 sc on top of next dc, 1 sc on top of beg ch-3, turn. —–25 ch-3 loops

 

Row 7: Ch 1, 1 sc in first st, *(ch 2, 3 dc in next ch-3 space, ch 2, 1 sc in next ch-1 space), repeat from * until you work 3 dc in last ch-3 space, ch 2, sk next sc, 1 sc in last sc, turn.———–25 repeats

 

Notes
1. To join a new color at the end of a row, start working your last dc as usual and when you have 2 loops left on your hook, pull through the new color.

 

2. Every time you switch colors, bring the new yarn attached to your left

 

3. Do not fasten off when you change colors but just drop the yarn to pick up later. The yarn will be carried along the sides and will get hidden when you work the border.

 

Rows 8 & 9: Repeat Rows 4 and 5 and join blue yarn at the end of Row 5.

 

Rows 10&11: With blue yarn, repeat Rows 6 and 7. Join back the peach color at the end of Row 7.

 

Rows 12 and 13: With peach color yarn joined, repeat rows 4 and 5. Join back the blue color at the end of Row 5.

 

Rows 14 and 15: With blue yarn, repeat Rows 6 and 7. Join back the peach color at the end of Row 7.

Rows 18 and 19: With blue yarn, repeat Rows 6 and 7. Join back the peach color at the end of Row 7.

 

Note: Now the stripes will get wider and we will change colors every 4 rows.

 

Rows 20-23: Repeat Rows 4, 5, 6 and 7 with peach color yarn.

 

Rows 24-27: Repeat Rows 4, 5, 6 and 7 with blue color yarn.

 

Repeat Row 4, 5, 6, and 7 changing colors every 4 rows until you have a total of 15 wide stripes and you end in a peach stripe.

 

Our stripes will now get narrow and we will change colors every 2 rows as we did in the beginning.

Blanket Border

Pattern Notes

1. All the rounds of the blanket are worked on the Right side of the blanket. The right side is the side you worked the dc rows on.

 

2. The first round of the blanket is a sc round that is worked along 3 sides of the blanket. This row does not extend across the foundation chain side as you started with a sc row.

 

3. While working the first row of sc, you should take care to work over the yarn strands running along the side of the blanket.

 

Row 1: Keep your blanket right side facing up. With F(3.75mm) hook, sl st to the right corner of the foundation chain side of your blanket, and work along the side of the blanket, 1 sc on the side of the first sc row, work total 3 sc sts across the side of each chain row and a dc row until you reach the top corner, 3 sc in the corner.

 

Continue to work along the last row of your blanket, 1 sc in each st and ch across to the next corner. Continue along the left side of the blanket working 3 sc sts across a chain row and a dc row until you reach the next corner at the foundation chain side, sl st to the first free loop on the foundation chain side. Do not turn.

 

Round 2: ch 1(does not count as a st), 1 sc in same st as ch 1, *(ch 3, sk 2 sts, 1 sc in next), repeat from * until you work chain loops all around the blanket, sl st to the first sc. Do not turn.

 

Round 3: 1 sc into next ch-3 loop, ch 3, 3 dc in same ch-3 loop, *(1 sc, ch 3, 3dc)all in next ch-3 loop, keep repeating from * until you work a repeat in the last ch-3 loop, sl st to first sc, fasten off.

Finishing the Blanket

Weave in any tails left.

      I did not block it. If you want to block, you can look up Youtube videos on blocking acrylic yarn. I am glad you love my Gingham blanket. It is one of my favorites too. It is worth every minute you put into it.
