Crochet gauge: 1 square should measure 14 x 14 cm / 5½'' x 5½"

The blanket consists of 20 squares crochet together.

1 square:
Ch 4 on hook size 4.5mm/US 7 with 2 strands of Alpaca held together and make a ring with a sl st in first ch.

1st round: ch 3 (= 1 dc), *ch 1, 1 dc around the ring*, repeat from *-* a total of 7 times and finish with ch 1 and 1 sl st in the 3rd ch from beginning of round, (= 8 dc on round).

2nd round: ch 3 (= 1 dc), *ch 3, 1 dc in the next dc*, repeat from *-* a total of 7 times and finish with ch 3 and 1 sl st in the 3rd ch from beginning of round, (= 8 dc on round).

3rd round: Crochet as follows in each ch space: 1 sc, ch 1, 1 dc, ch 1, 1 tr, ch 1, 1 tr, ch 1, 1 dc, 1 ch and 1 sc. Finish with a sl st in the 1st sc from beginning of round, (= 8 leaves on round).

4th round: ch 4 (= 1 tr = 1st corner), *ch 5, 1 sc in the top of the next leaf (between the 2 tr), ch 4, 1 sc in the top of the next leaf, ch 5, 1 tr between the 2 sc in between 2 leaves*, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times, but finish with a sl st in the 4th ch from beginning of round, (instead of a tr in between 2 leaves) = 12 ch spaces around the square with a tr in each corner

5th round: In the corner tr crochet as follows: ch 4 (= 1 tr), ch 2, 1 dtr, ch 2 and 1 tr. Continue to crochet 4 tr in each space.
In the tr at the remaining 3 corners crochet 1 tr, ch 2, 1 dtr, ch 2, 1 tr.
Finish the round with a sl st in the 4th ch from beginning of round.
Fasten off.

Assembly: Crochet the squares together as shown in diagram 1 (this means a sc in approx. every 3 tr). Crochet the squares tog first vertically and then horizontally with 4 squares in the width and 5 squares in the height.

Crochet edge: Finally crochet an edge of ch spaces all around the blanket on hook size 4.5mm/US 7 with 2 strands of off-white Alpaca as follows: 1 sc in the dtr at the corner, *ch 6, skip approx 2 tr, 1 sc in the next tr*, repeat from *-* and finish the round with ch 6 and 1 sl st in the 1st sc on round – make sure to have 1 sc in each dtr at the 2 corners each square.
