PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. A.1 shows square and A.2 shows the sides.
----------------------------------------------------------

BLANKET:
Work entire piece in stripes, i.e. switch colour on every row. First work square, then work edges in 2 of the sides. Finally work an edge around the entire blanket.

SQUARE:
Work 6 ch on hook size 3.5 mm with raspberry cake and form 1 ring with 1 sl st in first ch. Then work in the round but alternately from RS and WS as shown in diagram A.1. I.e. work as follows:
ROW 1: 3 ch, 2 tr around ring, 3 ch, * 3 tr around ring, 3 ch *, repeat from *-* 3 times in total. Switch to autumn forest and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of row, turn piece.
ROW 2: 3 ch, 2 tr around first ch-space, 3 ch, 3 tr around same ch-space, * 1 ch, 3 tr around next ch-space, 3 ch, 3 tr in same ch-space *, repeat from *-* 3 times in total. Switch to raspberry cake and finish with 1 ch and 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of row, turn piece.
ROW 3: 3 ch, 2 tr around first ch-space, 1 ch, * 3 tr around next ch-space, 3 ch, 3 tr around same ch-space, 1 ch, 3 tr around next ch-space, 1 ch *, repeat from *-* 3 times in total, 3 tr around next ch-space, 3 ch, 3 tr around same ch-space and 1 ch. Switch to autumn forest and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of row, turn piece.
Continue to switch colour on every row and continue the same way - i.e. there are 3 tr and 1 ch more between every corner on every row worked. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! Work until square measures approx. 80 x 80 cm. Finish with 1 sl st at beg of round. Fasten off.

SIDES:
Now work back and forth along 2 opposite sides (do not work in the side of square where beg of row was). Work in stripes as before and work according to diagram A.2, i.e. work as follows:
ROW 1: Beg with both colours (= 2 strands), work 1 sl st in corner and 3 ch, remove one colour and work with the other colour as follows: 2 tr around corner, 1 ch * skip to next ch (between 3 tr) and work 3 tr and 1 ch *, repeat from *-* until corner, work 3 tr around corner.
ROW 2: Do not turn piece, but beg next row where previous row started (now beg with other colour). Work 3 ch, 1 ch, * skip to next ch (between 3 tr) and work 3 tr and 1 ch *, repeat from *-* until the last 3 tr from previous row, finish with 1 tr in last tr from previous row. Now both strands are in the same side again.
ROW 3: Work 3 ch with both colours, remove one strand and work 2 tr around first ch, 1 ch, * skip until next ch (between 3 tr) and work 3 tr and 1 ch *, repeat from *-* until 1 ch and 3 ch (= 1st tr) remain, work 2 tr around ch and 1 tr in 3rd ch from previous row.
ROW 4: Work as 2nd row. Repeat 1st-4th row until edge measures approx. 30 cm from where square ended. Work the same way on opposite side of square.

EDGE:
Work an edge around the entire blanket. Work the same way as on square. I.e. work in rows and stripes, i.e. work row tog at the end of row. Beg in one of the corners.
ROW 1: Beg with both colours, work 1 sl st in corner and 3 ch, remove one colour and work with the other colour as follows: 2 tr, 3 ch and 3 tr around corner, (* 3 tr around next ch, 1 ch *, repeat from *-* until next corner. Work 3 tr, 3 ch and 3 tr around corner). Repeat from (-) 2 more times and repeat from *-* until beg of row and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of row. Turn piece.
ROW 2: Beg next row with both colours and work 3 ch, remove one colour and work the same way as on previous row. Turn piece.
ROW 3: Work as 2nd row. Fasten off.

Hei! Hvordan er det en skal føre garnet opp ved fargeskifte? Det holder ikke kun å skifte garn i kjedemaske hver omgang. Da får man en tråd på lengde med de 3lm. Kan ikke tenke meg å feste tråder hver omgang. Jeg har andre farger med mer kontrast mellom fargene. Noen forslag til hvordan jeg kan gjøre dette?

DROPS Design 18.03.2019 kl. 12:55:

Hei Agnes. Det er egentlig ikke noe god teknikk for hvordan å trekke tråden som ikke hekles med opp 1 rad uten at den syntes. Den vil bli på høyde med de 3 luftmaskene, dessverre. Alternativet blir som du sier å feste trådeendene på hver omgang. Beklager å ikke kunne være til mer hjelp. God fornøyelse

Jennifer 16.01.2019 - 20:59:

Ich habe mir einen Poncho mit dem Muster gehäkelt, doch leider wird die Spitze, in der ich die Maschen zunehme, schräg. Es dreht sich alles in die Richtung, in die ich häkel. Was mache ich falsch?

DROPS Design 17.01.2019 kl. 09:23:

Liebe Jennifer, dieses Modell kann vielleicht Ihnen helfen, um einen Poncho in so einem Muster zu häkeln. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Lenka 18.10.2018 - 13:45:

Dobrý den, mám dotaz k háčkování boků. Píšete, že se začíná oběma přízemi, pak jednu odložit a na konec řady jen jednou barvou. A pak vzít druhou barvu a háčkovat zpět. Co ale s tím jedním odloženým vláknem barvy během 1.ř.? To se táhne po rubové straně?? Moc děkuji za odpověď :) Lenka

Yvette 19.03.2018 - 08:40:

Bonjour ! Faut-il couper le fil à chaque tour ou le faire suivre....et de quelle façon ? Merci !

DROPS Design 19.03.2018 kl. 11:15:

Bonjour Yvette, on change de couleur tous les rangs, on va donc faire suivre le fil entre chaque changement de couleur, à la fin du tour, crochetez la mc avec la couleur suivante en veillant bien à ne pas trop tirer le fil pour ne pas trop resserrer les rangs à ce niveau. Bon crochet!

Gabriella Abraham 01.03.2018 - 21:03:

Hi. How can I make this design into a rectangle for a queen size bed? Thanks Gabriella

DROPS Design 02.03.2018 kl. 08:31:

Dear Mrs Abraham, you can just continue working the square until the desired measurements, then adjust lenght working each side separately - for any individual assistance your DROPS store will help you, even per mail or telephone. Happy crocheting!

Alicia 23.10.2017 - 09:41:

Hola,me gustaria saber los colores que lleva y cuantos?

DROPS Design 30.10.2017 kl. 08:32:

Hola Alicia. En esta manta están usados dos colores de lana multicolor DROPS DELIGHT Nº17 y Nº18

Clare 03.06.2017 - 12:17:

Do you have any recommendations for a neat & tidy change of yarn on each row or is it just a case of weaving ends in? Many thanks

DROPS Design 04.06.2017 kl. 12:55:

Hi Clare, The best way to get a neat transition, when changing yarns is to work the last stitch before the colour change with the new yarn. Kind regards, Deirdre

Wil graag weten hoeveel bollen ik nodig heb voor deze deken en graag de kleurnummers ? vriendelijke groet

Hoi. Het staat aan het begin van het patroon: DROPS DELIGHT van Garnstudio 350 gr. kleur nr. 17, frambozentaart 350 gr. kleur nr. 18, herfstbos. Elke bol Delight is 50 gr :)

Lucy 23.07.2015 - 12:30:

Do we use hook size 3.5mm or 5mm? In the description it says 3.5mm but in the instructions it says 5mm.

DROPS Design 28.07.2015 kl. 10:10:

Dear Lucy, the blanket is worked with a crochet hook size 3,5 mm, pattern has been edited, thank you. Happy crocheting!
