BLANKET:
Blanket consists of several fans worked together along the way. Beg at the bottom of blanket in the order fans are numbered - see A.1. Work 2 parts that are sewn tog in the middle so that blanket is the same in both sides. Always pick up new sts from RS. The first 2 rows on every fan are worked with Alpaca, then finish fan with Delight.

First row with fans has now been worked.

FAN 1C:
Pick up 30 sts with Alpaca along FAN 2B's left edge (seen from RS), and pick up 31 sts along FAN 1A's right edge (seen from RS) = 61 sts on needle. Then work FAN 1A but from 2nd row (i.e. beg with K from WS).

Work FAN 2C, 3C, 4C and 5C on 2nd row the same way – see placement in diagram A.1.
Second row with fans has now been worked.

Work FAN 1D, 2D, 3D and 4D on 3rd row the same way – see placement in diagram A.1, but when picking up, do as follows (example explains fan 1D): Pick up 30 sts with Alpaca along FAN 1C's left edge (seen from RS), pick up 1 st at the top of tip on FAN 1A and finally pick up 30 sts along FAN 2C's right edge (seen from RS) = 61 sts on needle.

FAN 1E:
Pick up 30 sts with Alpaca along left edge (seen from RS) on last fan on 2nd row, pick in addition up 1 st in the tip at the top on FAN 1B = 31 sts on needle. Then work FAN 1B but from 2nd row (i.e. beg with K from WS).

FAN 2E:
Pick up 1 st with Alpaca in the tip at the top on FAN 2B, then pick up 30 sts along FAN 1C's right edge (seen from RS) = 31 sts on needle. Then work FAN 2B but from 2nd row (i.e. beg with K from WS).
Third row with fans has now been worked.

FAN 1F:
Pick up 30 sts with Alpaca along FAN 2E's left edge (seen from RS), pick up 1 st at the top of tip on FAN 1C and then pick up 30 sts along FAN 1D's right edge (seen from RS) = 61 sts on needle. Then work FAN 1A but from 2nd row (i.e. beg with K from WS).

Work FAN 2F, 3F, 4F and 5F the same way.

Continue like this upwards (repeat the last 2 rows with fans) until blanket measures 75 cm / 29½’’, finish after a row with 4 whole and 2 half fans. Put piece aside and knit another part the same way.

CIRCLE: Work 5 circles that are sewn on to the middle of blanket.
Work in the round on double pointed needles from centre and outwards.
Cast on 6 sts evenly on 3 double pointed needles size 4.5 mm / US 7 (= 2 sts per needle) with Delight.
ROUND 1: P all sts.
ROUND 2: K all sts.
ROUND 3: Work * P 1, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* = 12 sts.
ROUND 4: K all sts, K the YOs twisted (i.e. work in back loop of sts instead of front to avoid holes).
ROUND 5: P all sts.
ROUND 6: K all sts.
Now continue to work on 7 double pointed needles. Distribute sts evenly on 6 double pointed needles so that there are 2 sts per needle.
ROUND 7: Work * P 1, 1 YO, P 1, 1 YO *, repeat from *-* = 24 sts (= 4 sts per needle).
ROUND 8-10: As 4th-6th round.

ROUND 12-14: As 4th-6th round.
ROUND 15: Work * P 2, 1 YO, P 1, 1 YO, P 3 *, repeat from *-* = 48 sts.
ROUND 16-18: As 4th-6th round.
ROUND 19: Work * P 1, 1 YO, P 5, 1 YO, P 2 *, repeat from *-* = 60 sts.
ROUND 20-22: As 4th-6th round.
ROUND 23: Work * P 3, 1 YO, P 1, 1 YO, P 6 *, repeat from *-* = 72 sts.
ROUND 24-26: As 4th-6th round.
ROUND 27: Work * P 1, 1 YO, P 7, 1 YO, P 4 *, repeat from *-* = 84 sts.
ROUND 28-30: As 4th-6th round.
ROUND 31: Work * P 4, 1 YO, P 1, 1 YO, P 9 *, repeat from *-* = 96 sts.
ROUND 32-34: As 4th-6th round.
ROUND 35: Work * P 1, 1 YO, P 9, 1 YO, P 6 *, repeat from *-* = 108 sts.
ROUND 36-38: As 4th-6th round.
ROUND 39: Work * P 5, 1 YO, P 1, 1 YO, P 12 *, repeat from *-* = 120 sts.
ROUND 40-42: As 4th-6th round.
ROUND 43: Switch to Alpaca. Work * P 1, 1 YO, P 11, 1 YO, P 8 *, repeat from *-* = 132 sts.
ROUND 44: LOOSELY bind off with K over all sts.
Cut the yarn and keep approx. 50 cm / 20’’ for assembly.
