START THE PIECE HERE:

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

BLANKET - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
You first work 30 crochet squares which are sewn together. Then you work an edge around the blanket.

CROCHET SQUARE:
Work 4 chain stitches with mustard and hook size 3.5 mm = US E/4 and form them into a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch. Work SQUARE (applies to crochet squares) - read description above and pattern in the round as follows: A.1 (shows how the round starts and finishes), A.2 a total of 3 times on the round. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! When A.1 and A.2 have been completed the square measures approx. 17 cm x 17 cm = 6 3/4” x 6 3/4”. Cut the strand.
Work 9 more square-1 = 10 squares.
Work 5 of each of the other squares (= square-2 to square-5).
When all the squares are finished you have a total of 30 crochet squares.

ASSEMBLY:
Lay out the squares as shown in the sketch. The number on the squares shows where they are placed:
1 = mustard
2 = coral
3 = powder pink
4 = sea green
5 = pistachio
Sew the squares together with off white. Sew in outermost loop of outermost stitch – see video. Sew first across the blanket so that you have 6 strips of 5 squares each. Then sew the strips together in length. Cut and fasten the strands.

EDGE:
Now work STRIPES (for edge) and pattern around the whole blanket as follows – read CROCHET INFORMATION:
Start in the transition between 2 squares before one of the corners as follows: Work A.3a (shows how the round starts and finishes), A.3b to the corner, * work A.3c around the chain-space in corner, work the first double crochet in A.3b around the chain-space in corner, continue with A.3b to next corner *, work from *-* a total of 4 times on the round. Continue until all rounds have been completed in height. Cut and fasten the strands.

Diagram

All measurements in charts are in cm.

= Start here - this chain-stitch ring (= 4 chain stitches + 1 slip stitch in first chain stitch) is described in the text. Continue with symbol over point on circle and work to the left
= Round begins with 1 chain stitch and finishes with 1 slip stitch in first chain stitch at beginning of round
= Round begins with 3 chain stitches and finishes with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch at beginning of round
= WORK 4 DOUBLE CROCHETS TOGETHER (at beginning of round) as follows: Work 3 chain stitches (replace the first double crochet on the round), work 1 double crochet in each of the next 2 double crochets, but wait with last yarn over and pull through on each of these double crochets, work 1 double crochet in the next double crochet and pull the yarn over through all 4 loops on hook (= 1 stitch left on hook)
= WORK 4 DOUBLE CROCHETS TOGETHER as follows: Work 1 double crochet in next double crochet, but wait with last yarn over and pull through, work 1 double crochet in the same way in the next 2 double crochets, work 1 double crochet in the next double crochet and pull the last yarn over through all 5 loops on hook (= 1 stitch left on hook)
= 1 chain stitch
= 1 single crochet around chain-space
= 1 double crochet around chain-stitch ring/chain-space/chain stitch
= 1 double crochet in stitch

= 1 double crochet worked in seam in transition between 2 crochet squares. NOTE: After the corner (A.3c) has been worked, work the first stitch in A.3b (i.e. this symbol) around the chain-space in corner so that you get 1 double crochet, 3 chain stitches and 1 double crochet around chain-space in corner
= Round begins with 3 chain stitches and finishes with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch at beginning of round, then work slip stitches to next treble crochet on round
