Introduction

I designed and crocheted this blanket for my youngest daughter. I made it a little larger than the pattern is written for. Mine is 5x4 blocks. The pattern is written for 4x4 blocks. It is just a little snuggly blanket. I've wanted to try using the "fur stitch" for awhile, so this is what I tried. I like it a lot, though I might have preferred it in an even softer yarn. Gauge isn't crucial, so feel free to try a different yarn.

Materials List

Hook: I (or the hook appropriate for your yarn)

Yarn: I Love This Yarn! in two colors--I used periwinkle and buttercup. This is a worsted weight yarn that is 100% acrylic. You'll need one skein of each.

Yarn Needle

Finished Size

About 26in x 26in

Gauge

Gauge is not crucial for this project.

Edging:

Note: Leave 3 unworked sc between each motif. When you complete a motif, begin next on the motif to the right of it. When you come to the corners (i.e. there is not enough room to work another motif before arriving at the corner of the blanket), work a "Corner edging motif." For all other motifs, work a standard "Edging motif." When you have worked all the motifs but one use the "Last edging motif" instructions.

With MC join w/ a slp st to the right end of any side. *Work 67 sc across that side and one additional sc in the corner.* Repeat from * to * around the blanket and join w/ a slp st to beginning sc (272 sc). Ch 1 and without turning, work a slp st in the same beginning sc as well as the next 5 sc. Begin working first edging motif with that slp st.
