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

CROCHET SQUARES:
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.

ASSEMBLY:
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.

EDGE:
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.

= 4 chain stitches
= 1 half double crochet in stitch
= work corner on squares together as follows: Insert hook around chain space on first crochet square, get the yarn, insert hook around chain space on next crochet square, get yarn, make 1 yarn over and pull it through all loops on hook.
= round begins with 3 chain stitches and finishes with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch at beginning of round
= round begins with 2 chain stitches and finishes with 1 slip stitch in 2nd chain stitch at beginning of round
