Yarn: Viking Björk from Favoritgarner.
Hook: 3,0
Size: Approx 140 – 150 cm wide depending on if you crochet loose or tight. Length approx 220 -230 cm if you are making a temperature blanket.

UK terms used:
ch – chain
st – stitch
chsp – chainspace
dc – double crochet
dc2tog – Make 2 double crochet together. Every row starts with  dc2tog. Make a loop. Insert the hook into the first stitch, and draw a loop through (2 loops on hook). Insert the hook into the second stitch (3 loops on hook). Yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook photo 1 – 2.

Tips:

  • Fasten off after each row. I will keep my ends and not weave them in and instead use them as a fringe.
  • All rows are made from the right side.
  • Finish every row with 2 dc in the same st.
  • Use stitch markers when you start with ch 412, it is easy to lose count…
  • If you need one more st when you are finishing row 1, just make one more dc in one of the last stitches. If you have one too many, make 1 dc in the last st on row 1 instead of 2.  It will not show and the rest of the pattern will work for you.
  • If you have any questions about the pattern, you can always contact me at frostvirka@gmail.com and I will try to answer as fast as I can.

Ch 409. Fasten off. Of course you can turn and crochet back, but it is more easy to lose count, so I prefer to fasten off.

Repeat rows 2 – 7 to the end of the year ( if you are making a temperature blanket). You keep making rows of dc, then 3 rows of moss stitch, 3 rows of dc, etc.

Good luck with your blanket!
