Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
See diagrams A.1 to A.3. A.3 shows how the blanket is crocheted together.

Casting on and rounds 1, 2 and 5 are the same for all squares.
Rounds 3 and 4 are worked in the square’s colour.

CAST ON + ROUND 1: mustard
ROUND 2: white
ROUND 5: apricot

SQUARE 1: Work 8 squares with light pink.
SQUARE 2: Work 10 squares with shocking pink.
SQUARE 3: Work 10 squares with heather.
SQUARE 4: Work 3 squares with medium pink.
SQUARE 5: Work 6 squares with apricot.
SQUARE 6: Work 8 squares with peach.
SQUARE 7: Work 9 squares with raspberry.

To get the neatest transition when changing colours work the last slip stitch of the round with the new colour as follows: Insert the hook in the first chain stitch from the beginning of the round, work 1 yarn over with the new colour and pull the yarn through the loop on the hook. Fasten the strands as you go.

The blanket consists of 54 squares with 7 different colour combinations – READ SQUARE COLOURS.

Crochet with hook size 5 mm and Paris. Work A.1 – READ COLOUR CHANGE TIP. REMEMBER CROCHET TENSION!

Lay the squares out with the right square number as shown in A.2 (6 squares in width and 9 squares in length). The squares are worked together in strips first length-wise, then in width - see A.3 (A.3 shows the corners of 4 squares). Work them in to strips as follows: Put 2 squares together wrong side to wrong side and work through both layers with apricot as follows: 1 double crochet around the corner, * 4 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around the next chain space *, repeat from *-* as far as the corner (= 5 chain spaces), work 4 chain stitches (= transition to the next 2 squares). Continue in the same way until all the squares are worked across. Cut the strand on each strip.

To finish, work a border around the whole blanket in apricot as follows: Start in one corner. Work * 1 double crochet around the chain space in the corner, 4 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around the same corner, 4 chain stitches, (1 double crochet around the next chain space, 4 chain stitches), repeat from (-) to the next corner of the blanket *, repeat from *-* along the next 3 sides, finish with 1 slip stitch in the first double crochet at the beginning of the round.

= work 3 double treble crochet around the chain stitch, but wait with the last pull through on each of these double treble crochet, make a yarn over and pull yarn through all loops on the hook.
= chain 4 stitches and form them to a ring with 1 slip stitch – see point on circle, the round starts and finishes here
= chain space from last round on the square
= 4 chain stitches
= double crochet around 2 chain spaces

Hello, I have just received my Drops Paris cotton to crochet this beautiful blanket but now I look at the pattern again I do not understand it! I cannot follow the diagram easily so is there a written pattern for the square instead of the diagram? I hope so, if not I shall have to look for another pattern. Thank you

Dear Mrs Ledger, there is no written pattern to this diagram, but you will find here how to read a crochet diagram - see Full Circle. Happy crocheting!

Hello - I'm pretty new to crochet. How would you recommend I fasten the ends of each colour please?

DROPS Design 19.07.2018 kl. 11:49:

Dear Clare, this video below shows how to weave in tails when working with cotton. Happy crocheting!

Schade das es keine PDF Dateien gibt. Alle Anleitungen ausdrucken... sind Berge von Papier ;)

Liebe Manuella, gerne können Sie als PDF speichern, mit einer virtuellen Drucker. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

So wunderschön. Leider mit Wolle Paris, die fädelt schrecklich stark. Bis jetzt die einzig nicht empfehlenswerte Wolle von Drops. Schade.
