PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3. A.3 shows how the blanket is crocheted together.

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

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.

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

BLANKET:
The blanket consists of 54 squares with 7 different color combinations – READ SQUARE COLORS.


SQUARE:
Crochet with hook size 5 mm / H/8 and Paris. Work A.1 – READ COLOR CHANGE TIP. REMEMBER CROCHET GAUGE!

ASSEMBLY:
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 single crochet around the corner, * 4 chain stitches, 1 single 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.

CROCHET BORDER:
To finish, work a border around the whole blanket in apricot as follows: Start in one corner. Work * 1 single crochet around the chain space in the corner, 4 chain stitches, 1 single crochet around the same corner, 4 chain stitches, (1 single 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 single crochet at the beginning of the round.
