START THE PIECE HERE:

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

BLANKET – SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The blanket is made up of granny squares in 17 different colour combinations. Work the right number of squares as described above in each colour combination = a total of 35 squares. Then work the squares together before working an edge around the whole blanket.

1 GRANNY SQUARE:
Work 4 chain stitches with hook size 4.5 mm and the cast-on colour of the square – read COLOUR COMBINATIONS. Form the chain stitches into a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch worked.
Then work A.1 in the round with alternately 1 round from the right side and 1 round from the wrong side as shown in A.1. The first 4 rounds are drawn in A.1, then continue in the same way until you have worked a total of 8 rounds. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
Cut and fasten the strands. The square measures approx. 20 x 20 cm.

ASSEMBLY:
Lay the squares out as shown in A.2 or as desired. There should be 5 squares in width and 7 squares in height. Make sure all the squares are right side up. The squares are first worked together in length, then in width. 
Work them together with black as follows: Lay 2 squares together, wrong side to wrong side and work through both layers as follows: Work 1 double crochet around the corner, * 4 chain stitches, skip the next 3 treble crochets, work 1 double crochet around the next chain stitch*, work from *-* up to and including the next corner (= 8 chain-spaces) and work 3 chain stitches (= transition to the next 2 squares). Repeat on the next 2 squares and then continue until one double-length of squares is completed. Cut and fasten the strand. Then work this double length together with the next length in the same way. When all the lengths have been worked together, work them together in width. Cut and fasten the strands.

EDGE:
Work an edge with black around the whole blanket in the same way as the last round on the squares; i.e. work as follows:
Fasten the strand with 1 slip stitch in the last treble crochet before one of the corner-spaces on the blanket and begin the round with 3 chain stitches. Then work 3 treble crochets around each chain stitch and 1 chain stitch between each treble crochet group.
In the corners work 3 treble crochets, 3 chain stitches and 3 treble crochets.
In the transition between 2 squares along all sides work 3 treble crochets around the corner of the first square, 1 chain stitch and 3 treble crochets around the corner of the next square.
When you have worked around the whole blanket finish the round with 1 slip stitch in the 3rd chain stitch from the beginning of the round. Cut and fasten the strand.

Diagram

= start here – this chain-stitch ring is described in the text. Continue with the symbol above the point on the circle and work to the left
= 1 chain stitch
= the round starts with 3 chain stitches (equivalent to 1 treble crochet) and ends with 1 slip stitch in the 3rd chain stitch from the beginning of the round. Turn the piece, change colour if necessary and work the next round in the other direction
= work 1 treble crochet around the chain stitch/chain-space

I am looking for a nordic ladies pattern in XL size where the Nordic pattern does not extend out onto the sleeves (just goes around the neck). I can't find any in your pattern gallery. Any suggestions please? Many thanks Mairead

Dear Mairead, unfortunately most of our nordic design have the pattern also on the sleeves, but you can adapt them: please feel free to ask to your favourite DROPS store for a personal assistance. Happy crafting!
