NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.

See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagram A.2 shows how the squares are laid out when sewn together.

To get a neat transition when changing colours, work the last slip stitch on the round with the new colour as follows: Insert the hook into the 3rd chain stitch at the beginning of the round, pick up the new strand, make a yarn over with the new colour and pull it through the loops on the hook.

The blanket consists of 20 squares with 5 different colour combinations – READ SQUARE COLOURS. Work A.1B a total of 4 times around the chain-stitch ring, A.1A shows how each round starts and finishes – read COLOUR CHANGE! REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! Work a total of 4 squares in each colour combination. Cut and fasten all the strands. Sew the squares together in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch with grey – see A.2.


= slip stitch
= chain stitch
= treble crochet in stitch
= treble crochet around chain stitch/chain-space/chain-stitch ring
= Work 4 chain stitches and form them into a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch. The round starts by the point on the circle.

Hello, should the ch. 3 be counted as the first treble in each round? From the diagram it looks separate but I’m not sure if this is working up correctly.

Dear Sarah, the 3 ch at beg of round = A.1A do not replace 1st st, work first A.1A at the beg of round then repeat A.1B a total of 4 times in the round and finiwh with 1 sl st at the beg of round = in the 3rd ch from beg of round (= A.1A). Happy crocheting!

I would prefer a written out pattern if at all possible.

Rebecca Baird 23.03.2018 - 19:28:

I've not even started and already confused! Can someone help with the very first row please, one I get going I will be fine. I have never read a pattern diagram before.\r\nThanks in advance.

Dear Mrs Baird, on first row in A.1 work: 3 ch (= A.1A) then repeat A.1B a total of 4 times (= 3 tr (UK-English)/dc (US-English) around ring of chain, 4 chains) and finish with 1 sl st in the 3rd ch from beg of round (A.1A). Happy crocheting!

Om man börjar varje varv med 3 lm blir det ju liksom en extra stolpe i början på varje varv, på resten av varvet blir det en mindre väl? Ett varv är väl hela vägen runt, i rutan? Ser att någon mer undrar över varvstarten, inte helt solklart alltså...

DROPS Design 06.09.2017 kl. 08:14:

Hei Camilla. Ja, det blir liksom en ekstra stav, det vil ikke ha noen betydning (den trekker seg sammen med 1. stav) og det vil gjøre overgangene penere. God Fornøyelse!

Conny 15.08.2017 - 13:23:

Jeg forstår ikke helt hvordan jeg begynder og slutter hver omgang. Skal der laves lm som erstatter første stgm? Eller er lm ekstra i begyndelse af hver omgang?

DROPS Design 17.08.2017 kl. 07:37:

Hei Conny. Diagram A.1A viser hvordan du skal starte og slutte hver omgang (du starter med 3 luftmasker, hekle A.1B og avslutte med 1 kjedemaske i 3.luftmaske. Disse 3 luftmaskene erstarrer ikke 1.stav, men kommer i tillegg). Les også fargebytte. God Fornøyelse!
