BLANKET:

First crochet the blanket in dc-groups and then crochet a wide border in fan pattern round the whole blanket.

Ch 119 LOOSE (includes 3 ch to turn with) with hook size 3.5 mm/E/4 and Baby Merino.
ROW 1: Crochet 4 dc in 6th ch from hook, * skip 4 ch, 4 dc in next ch, *, repeat from *-* a total of 22 times, skip ch 2 and finish with 1 dc in last ch = 23 dc-groups on row, turn piece.
ROW 2: ch 3, then 4 dc between the 2 middle dc in each dc-group, finish with 1 dc in 3rd ch from beg of previous row, turn piece.
Repeat row 2 until blanket measures approx 56 cm / 22''.

BORDER WITH FAN PATTERN:
ROUND 1: Crochet 1 round with ch-loops round the whole blanket as follows – beg in a corner: 1 sl st in corner, 3 ch, 1 sc in the same st, ch 2, 1 sc in the same st, ch 2, 1 sc in the same st (= 3 ch-loops in corner), * ch 2, skip approx 1-1.5 cm / 3/8''-½'', 1 sc in next st *, repeat from *-* to the next corner, in corner crochet: ch 2, 1 sc in corner, ch 2, 1 sc in the same st, ch 2, 1 sc in the same st, continue along the next side – NOTE: There should be approx 29 ch-loops along both the short sides and approx 37 ch-loops along both the long sides and 3 ch-loops in each corner, i.e. the number of ch-loops between each corner must be divisible by 2 + 1 (= an uneven no of ch-loops). Finish round with ch 2 and 1 sl st in first ch from beg of round.

ROUND 2: 1 sl st in first ch-loop in corner, 3 ch, 1 dc in the same ch-loop, ch 1, 2 dc in the same ch-loop, * 1 dc in next sc, 2 dc + ch 1 + 2 dc in next ch-loop in corner *, repeat from *-* one more time (= 3 ”fans” in corner), * 1 dc in next ch-loop, 3 dc + ch 1 + 3 dc in next ch-loop *, repeat from *-* until 1 ch-loop before the 3 loops in corner remain, 1 dc in this loop, 2 dc + ch 1 + 2 dc in first ch-loop in corner, 1 dc in next sc, 2 dc + ch 1 + 2 dc in next ch-loop in corner, 1 dc in next sc, 2 dc + ch 1 + 2 dc in last ch-loop in corner (there are now 3 fans in corner), 1 dc in next ch-loop, 3 dc + ch 1 + 3 dc in next ch-loop, continue in the same way round the whole blanket and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.

ROUND 3 +4: Crochet sl sts to the beg of first ch-loop (= ch-loop between the 4 dc), 3 ch, 2 dc in the same ch-loop, ch 1, 3 dc in the same ch-loop, * 1 dc in dc from previous round, 3 dc + ch 1 + 3 dc in next ch-loop *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 dc in last dc and 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.

ROUND 5 + 6: Crochet sl sts to the beg of first ch-loop (= ch-loop between the 6 dc), 3 ch, 3 dc in the same ch-loop, ch 1, 4 dc in the same ch-loop, * 1 dc in dc from previous round, 4 dc + ch 1 + 4 dc in next ch-loop *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 dc in last dc and 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.

ROUND 7: Like round 6 but ch 2 in stead of ch 1 between each dc-group.

ROUND 8-10: Crochet sl sts to the beg of first ch-loop (= ch-loop between the 8 dc), ch 4, 3 tr in the same ch-loop, ch 2, 4 tr in the same ch-loop, * 1 tr in dc/tr from previous round, 4 tr + ch 2 + 4 tr in next ch-loop *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 tr in last dc/tr and 1 sl st in 4th ch from beg of round.
Cut the thread and fasten after round 10, border measures approx 12 cm / 4¾''.
