CROCHET TIPS:
When squares are crochet tog replace mid ch in ch-spaces and in corners on last round with a sc.
----------------------------------------------------------

BLANKET:
Blanket consist of 7 squares in height and 11 squares in length.
Work a square according to diagram A.1. When working next square, work according to diagram A.1, but on last round after last sc on the 2nd side on round work as follows - READ CROCHET TIPS: 2 dc + 1 ch + 1 tr + 1 ch + 2 dtr in next ch-space, ch 1, 1 sc in ch-space in the corner on first square, 1 ch + 2 dtr + 1 tr + 2 dc in ch-space below (i.e. in the same space on square no 2) * 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 2, 1 sc in ch-space on first square, 2 ch *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, 1 sc in next ch-space, 2 dc + 1 ch + 1 tr + 1 ch + 2 dtr in next ch-space, ch 1, 1 sc in ch-space in the corner on first square. Continue according to A.1 the entire round. Finish with 1 sl st in first st on round.
You now have two equal squares linked tog in one side. Continue to work squares and fasten them in the one side until you have a strip with 11 squares in total. Work 3 more strips the same way = 4 strips in total (with 11 squares each).
Continue to work as follows:
Work a square, AT THE SAME TIME on last round work this square tog between 2 strips (i.e. between 2 strips with 11 square) so that each corner and the 2 ch-spaces between the corner on square hang tog with a corner and ch-spaces on a square in the two strips. You now have 2 strips with 11 squares that hang tog with 1 square in between in one side. Continue to work squares but now work this square tog between the 2 strips with 11
squares and first square on this row by working the 2nd, 3rd and 4th side on last round tog with squares around. Continue like this until there are 3 rows with 11 squares. There are now 33 squares that hang tog.
Continue the same way by working new squares that are worked tog between strips with 11 squares. When 7 squares in height and 11 squares in length have been worked, the blanket is finished. Fasten the strands.

EDGE:
Then work an edge around the blanket as follows:
Round 1: Work like this over the edge on a square on long side of blanket.
Beg with a sl st in first ch-space in the corner on a square (in the middle of long side on blanket). Work as follows: * ch 7, 1 sc in next ch-space below, ch 3, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 7, 1 sc in ch-space in the corner on square, ch 3, 1 sc in next ch-space (in first corner on next square) *, repeat from *-* around the entire edge on blanket but in the corner on blanket work as follows after the 7 ch: * 1 sc in next ch space, ch 3, 1 sc in same ch-space *. Work around the entire edge on blanket and finish with an sl st in 1st st on round.
Round 2: Work as follows: ch 3, * 7 tr in first ch-space (= large ch-space), ch 1, 3 tr in next ch-space, ch 1, 7 tr in next ch-space, ch 1, 3 tr in next ch-space (= ch-space over corner between to squares) 1 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire round, but in ch-space in the corners on blanket work as follows after the 7 tr: ch 1, 3 tr in ch-space below, ch 3, 3 tr in the same ch-space, 1 ch. Then continue with 7 tr in next ch-space and as explained above. Continue like this the entire round, and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch on round. Fasten off.
