YARN CHANGE TIP:
To avoid fastening many strands the yarn ends can be fastened from the beginning of round along the way as follows:
ROUND 1: Place cast-on strand together with chain stitch ring and work around this the entire round, then cut the cast-on yarn.
ROUNDS 2-5: Work the first 3 chain stitches with double yarn of the new colour (yarn end + yarn from ball), then continue with 1 strand from the ball, the yarn end can be cut. At the end of each round, the yarn end from this round must be fastened, i.e. on every square there are 5 strands to fasten.
----------------------------------------------------------

BLANKET:
The blanket consists of 54 squares. work all squares first, then work them together and work an edge around the entire blanket at the end.

CROCHET SQUARE:
Begin with hook size 4.5 mm and Paris and work PATTERN according to diagram A.1. Switch colour on every round and work 3 squares of every COLOUR COMBINATION - see explanation above = 54 squares. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! 1 square measures approx. 13 x 13 cm. Fasten the strands while working - read YARN CHANGE TIP.

ASSEMBLY:
Place squares with correct square number as shown in illustration/chart (6 squares in width and 9 squares in length). Square number on illustration/chart refers to crochet squares with same number explained below COLOUR COMBINATION. 
Work squares together in rows alongside, then work the rows together across.
Work them together as follows:
Place 2 squares together wrong side against wrong side. Work around both layers with colour 101, light blue: ** 1 double crochet around corner, * 3 chain stitches, skip the next 2 double crochets, work 1 double crochet in next chain space *. Work from *-* until and with corner (= 6 chain spaces) and work 2 chain stitches (= transition to the next 2 squares) **. Repeat from **-** along the entire row and finish with 1 double crochet around the last corners. Fasten off. Work like this until all rows have been worked together along. Then work the rows together the same way across.

EDGE:
Work an edge around the entire blanket with colour 101, light blue.
Start working in a corner on the blanket. Fasten the strand with 1 slip stitch around the chain stitches on the corner and work as follows:
3 chain stitches (replaces 1 treble crochet), 1 chain stitch, 1 treble crochet, 3 chain stitches, 1 treble crochet, 1 chain stitch, 1 treble crochet, 2 chain stitches = 1st corner. Then work as follows along the side:
** Skip 2 treble crochets, * 2 treble crochets around the chain-space, 2 chain stitches, skip 2 treble crochets *, work from *-* 5 times, 1 treble crochet around the chain-space in the corner of the square, 2 chain stitches, 1 treble crochet around the corner of next square **, work from **-** until 2nd corner of blanket. Around the corner work: 1 treble crochet, 1 chain stitch, 1 treble crochet, 3 chain stitches, 1 treble crochet, 1 chain stitch, 1 treble crochet and 2 chain stitches.
Work from **-** until the 3rd corner of blanket, work around the corner as before.
Work from **-** until the 4th corner of the blanket, work around the corner as before.
Work from **-** until the 1st corner and finish with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch on at the start of the round.
