- Finished Size: 70 wide x 65 (You'll notice it finishes wider than the foundation chain because of the weight of the yarn it stretches out).
- 6 skeins of size 5 or 6 yarn in each color. I used Loops and Threads - yarn (sold at Michaels). Bernat Sofftee Chunky is very similar! any other thicker size 5 or 6 yarn with slight texture will give you a similar result. I linked the Bernat, so you can see what it looks like.
-Size Q or 16 mm crochet hook. Also known as a speed hook.
-smaller crochet hook for weaving in ends
-scissors for triming
Q hook, 16mm
Bernat Sofftee Yarn (very similar to loops and threads)
1. Take 2 strands at the same time and make a slip knot. Tighten around the hook.
2. Chain 70 chains... or 50 inches with very little tension.
3. hdc in 3rd chain from hook and repeat in each chain all the way down, use very little tension at this point, it will help you down the line.
4. Ch 2 and turn.
5. hdc in 2nd stitch over from edge of the blanket and continue in each stitch. Be sure to get the hdc in that last turning chain stitch.
6. Ch 2 and turn
7.Repeat until you run out of that color yarn.
-When you run out of yarn, I did not run out at the same time. Tie the 2 ends (the yarn you are using and the new yarn) and continue. Don't forget to weave in all the little ends later. When you run out of the next skein of yarn, attache the next skein. This way the tails to be weaved in will be staggered and unnoticeable.
8. When you finish a row of color 1 and don't have enough to complete another row, add your new color when you make your last hdc. WHen you have the 3 loops on your hook for that last stitch, add the 2 strands on your hook and pull through. Tighten everything up, chain 2 and turn continuing on like we have been.
9. Continue adding skeins of yarn and change to your 3rd color and crochet until you can fully complete a row and cannot complete another.
10. Weave in all the ends very well.
