Pat­tern Notes

Blan­ket is worked as sep­a­rate, striped, garter stitch squares that are cro­cheted to­gether. The squares are worked di­ag­o­nally, start­ing at 1 cor­ner and end­ing at the other. The size is de­ter­mined by the num­ber of squares worked. Baby blan­ket re­quires a to­tal of 4 squares, throw re­quires 6 and twin bed­spread re­quires 8. The final de­sign of the blan­ket is de­ter­mined by how the squares are po­si­tioned. Play with the ar­range­ment of the final squares to make your own de­sign. Some op­tions are pro­vided here, but the pos­si­bil­i­ties are vir­tu­ally end­less.
