BLANKET:
The blanket consists of 66 squares. There are 6 different squares. Work 13 pieces of Squares 1 and 4, 12 pieces of Squares 5 and 6, and 8 pieces of Squares 2 and 3.

CROCHET SQUARE:
Ch 7 on hook size 5mm / H/8 with Lima and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch - use the color from first round of square - see explanation above.

ROUND 1: ch 3 (= 1 dc), work 15 dc in ch-ring and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 16 dc.

ROUND 2: Turn piece, ch 5 (= 1 dc + 2 ch), * 1 dc in next dc, ch 2 *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 16 dc with 2 ch between each.

ROUND 3: ch 1, turn piece, ch 2 (= 1 dc), 1 dc in first ch space, * ch 2, 2 dc in next ch space *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish with ch 2 and 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.

ROUND 4: ch 1, turn piece,1 sc in first ch space (from previous round), * ch 3, 1 sc in next ch space, ch 6, 1 sc in next ch space, ch 3, 1 sc in next ch space, ch 3, 1 sc in next ch space*, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times, but finish with 1 sl st in sc from beg of round (instead of sc in next ch).

ROUND 5: Turn piece, ch 3 (= 1 dc), 2 dc in first ch space, 3 dc in next ch space, then work 5 dc + ch 2 + 5 dc in every 6-ch-space (= corner), and 3 dc in every 3-ch-space the entire round, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round. Fasten off.

ASSEMBLY:
Place the squares with 6 squares in width and 11 squares in height - see Fig. 1. Crochet squares tog with beige mix - crochet squares tog alongside and then across as follows: Place 2 squares tog WS against WS and work tog from RS as follows:
1 sc in corner of first square, ch 1, 1 sc in corner of next square, ch 1, 1 sc in next st on first square, ch 1, 1 sc in next st on second square, ch 1, 1 sc in next st on first square, ch 1, 1 sc in next st on second square etc. finish when 1 sc has been worked in the next corner on both squares, cut and fasten the thread.
NOTE: Make sure that the transitions between every square are pretty when the squares are worked tog alongside.


CROCHET BORDER:
Work a finishing edge around the entire blanket with beige mix as follows: Beg in one corner and work from RS:

ROUND 1: 1 sl st in the corner, ch 1, then work 1 sc in every st the entire round (i.e. 1 sc in every dc, 1 sc in each corner on the squares, 2 sc in every transition between every square and 2 sc in each corner on the blanket), finish with 1 sl st in first ch from beg of round.

ROUND 2: ch 3, (= 1 dc), then work 1 dc in every sc the entire round but work 2 dc in each of the 2 sc in every corner on the blanket = 4 dc in the corners, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.

ROUND 3: ch 3, (= 1 dc), then work 1 dc in every dc but work 2 dc in each of the 4 dc in every corner on the blanket = 8 dc in each corner, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.

OUND 4: ch 3, * skip 3 dc, 1 sc in next dc, skip 3 dc, 10 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round - adjust so that there is one 10dc-group in every corner and finish with 1 sl st in 1st sc on round.
