Yarns used: Red Heart; 8 skeins Shaded Dusk, 8 Skeins White, 6 skeins Wine

 

You can make this an afghan, or bedspread.

Gauge is not really a problem with this pattern. You just need even numbers when making your chain. The hook will decide the size. I used an L hook on this one. My finished size was 85�L x 96�W as it was my intention to make a very large blanket to cover our bed in either the house or trailer.

 

Pattern: Chain 192 with white.

 

Single crochet in 2nd chain from hook and each stitch thereafter to the end. Chain 1 and turn.

 

YO Pull up a loop in the first stitch, YO pull up a loop in the next stitch. 3 loops on hook. YO and pull through 2 loops, then YO and pull through 2 loops. Stitch complete.

 

YO pull stitch up in the same stitch you just finished, YO and pull loop up in next stitch.

3 loops on hook. YO and pull through 2 loops, YO and pull through 2 loops.

 

Continue in this manor to the end of the row where you will do 1 double crochet in the last stitch.

 

I changed colors at the beginning of every 13th row.

 

On this blanket, there are 8 sections of white and four sections of each color.

Repeat row 2 until you reach the desired length.

 

Finish off. Weave in all ends.
