----------------------------------------------------------

BLANKET:
The blanket consists of 15 octagons and 20 squares in varying colour combinations. These crochet shapes are assembled at the end. Then an edge is worked around the whole blanket.

OCTAGON:
Work in the round according to diagram A.1 with hook size 9 mm. Read COLOURS OCTAGON and COLOUR CHANGE above. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! One octagon measures 28 cm in diameter measured from side to side.

SQUARE:
Work in the round according to diagram A.2 with hook size 9 mm. Read COLOURS SQUARE and COLOUR CHANGE above. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! One square measures 12 x 12 cm.

ASSEMBLY:
Lay the shapes out with the right shape number as shown in diagram A.3.
They are crocheted together with hook size 9 mm and brown - see diagram A.4. They are worked together in diagonal stripes – see the thick line. Work 1 double crochet in the back loop of each double crochet through both layers. Then work the octagons/squares together as shown by the broken line. Work 1 slip stitch where 2 lots of double layers meet – see circle, 1 double crochet around the corner-space and 1 double crochet in the back loop of each of the 10 double crochets through both layers, 1 double crochet around the corner-space.

EDGE:
Work a finishing edge around the whole blanket with hook size 9 mm and brown - see diagram A.4. Work 1 round with treble crochets around the whole blanket by working 1 treble crochet in each double crochet and around the chain-spaces, work as follows: Where there is an outward angle (see arrow-1), work 2 treble crochets, 2 chain stitches and 2 treble crochets around the chain-space. Where there is an inward angle (see arrow-2), work 1 treble crochet around the chain-space of the first square/octagon and work 1 treble crochet around the chain-space of the next square/octagon. The round starts with 3 chain stitches and finishes with 1 slip stitch in the 3rd chain stitch at the beginning of the round, then cut and fasten the strand.

Diagram

= chain stitch
= double crochet in stitch
= treble crochet around the chain-space/chain-stitch ring
= treble crochet in stitch
= double treble crochet around the chain-stitch ring
= 3 triple treble crochets worked together as follows: Work 3 triple treble crochets in the stitch – but wait with the last yarn over and pull through on all these triple treble crochets, then pull the last yarn over through all 4 loops on the hook
= 4 chain stitches, form them to a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch – see point on circle, the round starts and finishes here
