color if you do not want it to be)
Size: About 581/2" x 75"
Crochet Hook Size H or the size that
will give you the correct Gauge.
Gauge: Each measures around 6"
Squares (make 108)
Starting at center, ch 5. Join with sl st
to form ring.
1st Rnd: Ch 3. Work 11 dc in ring; join with sl st to top of ch 3 (12 dc, counting ch 3 as 1 dc)
2nd rnd: Pull up a lp on hook 1/2" high, yo, insert hook in same st as sl st, yo,
draw up a lp, "(yo, insert hook in same st, yo, draw up a lp) twice. -(basically
you should do this 3 times and then you will end up with 7 loops on the hook.
Pull through all the seven and then ch 1)- One cluster made; yo, insert hook in
next dc, yo, draw up a lp.* Repeat from * to * 11 times more, omitting "yo, insert hook in next dc, yo, draw up a lp" after last cluster and ending ch 1, sl st
to top of first cluster (end with 12 clusters)
3rd rnd: Sl St in first sp between clusters, ch 3, dc in same sp (half corner
made), *(1 dc in top of next cluster, 1 dc in next sp) twice; 1 dc in next
cluster, work 2 dc, ch 2 and 2 dc in next sp (corner made.) Repeart from * twice
more; (1 dc in top of next cluster; ending 2 dc in first sp, ch 2 , sl st to top of
ch 3 (9 dc on each side and 4 corner sps
4th rnd: Turn. sl st to center of first sp, draw up a lp 1/2" high and work a 7 lp
cluster in same sp (half corner made), *(sk 1 dc, 1 cluster in next dc) 4 times;
sk 1 dc, work 1 cluster, ch 3 and 1 cluster in next sp. Repeat from * twice
more; (sk 1 dc, 1 cluster in next dc) 4 times; ending 1 cluster in first sp, ch 3,
sl st to top of first cluster (6 clusters on each side and 4 corner sps)
5th rnd: Turn. Ch 3, work 1 dc, ch 3 and 2 dc in corner sp, * ( 2 dc between
next 2 clusters) 5 times; work 2 dc, ch 3 and 2 dc in next sp. Repeat from *
twice more, ending (2 dc between next 2 clusters) 5 times; sl st to top of ch 3.
Break off (thats what they said for tie off! Break off. Sounds violent.)
FINISHING: Afghan is 9 squares wide and 12 squares long. Join as follows:
with wrong sides of 2 squares tog, insert hook through both corners, 1 sc in
same sp, "ch 1, sk 1 on both squares, (1 sc through next st on both squares)
twice. Repeat from * , ending 1 sc through corner of both squares. Break
SCALLOPED EDGE: Insert hook in corner, * sk 2 sts, work 3 dc, 3 tr and
3 dc in next st, sk 2 sts, 1 sc in next st. Repeat from * once more, sk 2 sts, work 3 dc, 3 tr and 3 dc in next st, 1 sc in st joining squares. Repeat from * around afghan. Break off.
This is what I made with the pattern. The blanket is cute. So are those super
cute shoes. They are a totally different pattern. The mittens also.
