There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
See diagram A.1.

To get a nice transition between the color changes, work last sl st on round with the new color as follows: Insert hook in last ch from beg of round, make a yarn over with the new color and pull
it through st on hook.

Work every round with dc/tr in Big Delight - READ COLOR CHANGE.
Work every round with sc/ch in Alaska black.

Work 40 crochet squares in total in 2 different color combinations.
Work 16 crochet squares with Big Delight jeans blue/teal and Alaska black.
Work 24 crochet squares with Big Delight marina and Alaska black.

Worked in the round. Begin with hook size 6 mm / J/10 and Big Delight and work PATTERN according to diagram A.1 and STRIPES - see explanation above. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! 1 square measures 18 x 18 cm / 7'' x 7" in total (i.e. 9 cm / 3½'' from middle).

When all crochet squares are done, there are 40 squares in total.


Sew blanket together with 5 squares in width and 8 squares in length.
Sew one and one length together with Alaska black - sew in outer loop of edge sts, first along then across.

Work an edge around the blanket on hook size 6 mm / J/10 with black as follows: Work 4 ch (replace first tr), 1 tr in every sc, 1 tr around every ch, 2 tr around every ch-space (i.e. around the corner that have been sewn together), in each of the corners work 2 tr around ch-space, ch 3, 2 tr around same ch-space, finish with 1 sl st in 4th ch. Fasten off.


= work 4 ch and form a ring with 1 sl st
= dc around ch-ring
= tr around ch-space
= ch
= sc in dc
= sc around ch-space
= sl st
= begin round with 4 ch and finish with 1 sl st in 4th ch at beginning of round
= begin round with 3 ch and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beginning of round
= begin round with 1 ch and finish with 1 sl st in 1st chain and beginning of round
