Repeat 1st and 2nd row, i.e. dec 2 st in the middle of the square on every other row until 1 st remains, cut the thread and pull it through remaining st.

TIP FOR SWITCHING THREADS:
To make the colour transitions in Delight pretty when switching ball, it is important to find a ball that starts with the same colour last ball ended with.

BLANKET:
Cast on 73 sts with Alpaca on needle size 3.5 mm. Work DOMINO SQUARE - see explanation above - switch to Delight after 2nd row. Work 40 domino squares - read TIP FOR SWITCHING THREADS.

ASSEMBLY:
Place the squares with 5 squares in breadth and 8 squares in height. Sew squares tog with small stitches in front loop of outermost st to avoid a chunky seam.

CROCHET BORDER:
Use hook size 3.5 mm and Alpaca. Work 1 row with tr along one short side and one long side so that the entire blanket has a black edge.
