EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

CHAIN STITCH:
If you work outermost on the hook the chain stitch will often be too tight; 1 chain stitch should be as long as 1 double crochet is wide


PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.4.

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

START THE PIECE HERE:

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

BLANKET – SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The blanket is made up of 30 similar squares. The squares are worked in the round from the centre outwards making a square.

SQUARE:
Work 6 chain stitches – read CHAIN STITCH, with hook size 6 mm and 1 strand Big Delight + 1 strand Kid Silk (= 2 strands) and form them into a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch worked. Then work in the round according to diagram A.1. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! When the whole diagram has been completed, cut and fasten the strand. The square measures approx. 20 x 20 cm.

ASSEMBLY:
Lay the squares out, with 5 squares in width and 6 squares in length.
Lay 2 squares together with wrong side to wrong side. Work through both layers with 2 strands Kid-Silk as follows: ** 1 double crochet around the corner, * 3 chain stitches, skip the next 3 treble crochets, work 1 double crochet around the next chain-space *. Work from *-* up to and including the next corner and work 3 chain stitches (= transition to the next 2 squares) **. Repeat from **-** along the whole row and finish with 1 double crochet around the last corner. Cut and fasten the strands. Continue like this until all the lengths have been worked together. Then work the lengths together in width.

EDGE:
Now work an edge around the whole blanket with 2 strands Kid-Silk.
Start by working around one of the corners of the blanket. Fasten the strand with 1 slip stitch around the chain-space in the corner, work 3 chain stitches (replaces the first treble crochet in A.2), * work A.2 around the corner, repeat A.3 as far as the next corner of the blanket, but work according to A.4 in the transition between 2 squares *, work from *-* along the remaining 3 sides and finish with 1 slip stitch in the 3rd chain stitch at the beginning of the round.

Diagram
