Work first 16 squares in every color combination. Then assemble the crochet squares by working them together. Work an edge around the entire blanket.

Begin with hook size 4.5 mm/US 7 and Puna and work PATTERN according to diagram A.1 - work 16 squares of each COLOR – see explanation above = 96 squares. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! 1 square measures approx. 11 x 11 cm / 4½"x 4½". Fasten yarn while working and on the backside of piece.

Place squares with correct square number as shown in illustration/chart (8 squares in width and 12 squares in length). Square number on illustration/chart refers to crochet squares with same number explained below COLORS.
Work squares together first alongside the entire blanket and then across. Work them together as follows: Place 2 squares together wrong side against wrong side. Work through both layers with gray: 1 single crochet around corner, * 2 chain stitches, skip 2 single crochets, work 1 single crochet in next single crochet *. Work from *-* until and with corner (= 7 chain spaces) and work 3 chain stitches (= transition to the next 2 squares). Repeat the same on the next two squares that are next to them. Continue the same to other end of blanket until all squares on these two rows have been worked together. Cut the yarn. Now work this double row together with next row the same way. When all rows have been worked together alongside, the squares hang together. Now work the same way across.

Work an edge around the entire blanket in STRIPES - see explanation above. Begin on 2nd round in diagram (first round shows last round worked on crochet squares).
Begin in one corner on blanket. Work pattern according to diagram A.2 (shows how round begins and ends). * Work A.3 along the side of crochet square, A.4 in transition between 2 crochet squares *, work from *-* until 1 crochet square remains before next corner, work A.3 along the side on this crochet square, work A.5 around chain space in corner.
Work the same way along the next 3 sides and corner on blanket. Fasten off.

Bonjour, Ma question concerne l'assemblage : vous dites : "continuer jusqu'à l'autre extrémité de la couverture jusqu'à ce que tous les carrés de ces 2 rangs aient été crochetés ensemble" jusque là ça va, mais après Crochetez maintenant ce double rang avec le rang suivant de la même façon. Faut-il refaire un rang d'arceaux ? Merci d'avance pour votre réponse. Chantal

Bonjour Mme Bonneton, quand vous avez fait une bande en assemblant les carrés 2 par 2, vous obtenez une bande de 2 carrés en largeur, assemblez maintenant cette bande avec la rangée suivante de carrés comme vous avez fait auparavant en suivant l'ordre des carrés du schéma. Les carrés seront ensuite assemblés dans l'autre sens (= en largeur). Bon assemblage!

Dit is zo een mooi patroon dat ik er gelijk 2 heb gemaakt. Ze worden dagelijks gebruikt.

Griet Hanssens 20.02.2018 - 13:13:

Zou het kunnen dat er een foutje zit in de uitleg van het telpatroon? Het derde symbool, een verticaal stokje met dubbele streepjes door, is volgens de uitleg een vaste om een lossenlus. Moet dit geen dubbelstokje om een mossel uw zijn?

DROPS Design 20.02.2018 kl. 16:51:

Hallo Griet, Dat moet inderdaad een dubbel stokje zijn en niet een vaste. Bedankt voor het doorgeven, ik heb het inmiddels aangepast.

Hallo! Ich habe eine Frage zum Rand. Für den Rand steht in der Anleitung, dass man die erste Runde der Streifen nicht häkelt, da sie die letzte Runde der Häkelquadrate darstellt. Man soll also direkt mit dem 2. Streifen beginnen. Bei "Streifen" steht, dass die 1. Runde dunkelgrau ist. Dabei ist die letzte Runde aller Häkelquadrate immer grau (nicht dunkelgrau). Wie geht man jetzt also vor beim Rand? Ab welcher Runde beginnt man und mit welcher/n Farbe(n)? Danke für eine kurze Antwort!

DROPS Design 13.11.2017 kl. 13:35:

Liebe Sara, der Rand wird mit beschriebenen Streifen gehäkelt (= 1. Runde = dunkelgrau) aber die erste Reihe wird die 2. in Diagram sein (1. Reihe zeigt die letzte Reihe von Quadrat), dh mit 1 Lm, dann 2 Lm, 2 M überspringen, 1 fM in die nächste M, usw... Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Tekkis selline küsimus selle mustri kohta, et kui jõuan 3nda rea juurde siis on vaja alguses teha 4 ahelsilmust ja peale seda tekib segadus. Selle tumeda ovaalse selgitus on, et "heegelda 4 ühekordset sammas kokku: tee 1 kahekordne sammas..." jne. Et siis kas peab tegema kahekordsed samabad või ühekordsed sambad?

DROPS Design 15.05.2018 kl. 12:45:

Tere Karin! Tegemist on kahekordsete sammastega. Viga parandatud! Tänan. Head heegeldamist!

Sara 17.09.2017 - 20:07:

Hallo, wäre es möglich ein Foto mit einer Nahaufnahme der Quadrate einzustellen? Ich würde mir gerne das hübsche Blumenmuster von nahem ansehen. Danke und Grüße Sara

DROPS Design 18.09.2017 kl. 09:19:

Liebe Sarah, dieses Video zeigt der Quadrat und wie man ihn häkelt. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

The motifs look like snowflakes falling from a grey winter sky. Very pretty!
