Pattern updated on 8-29-2017

This update addresses some common issues that crocheters have had understanding the pattern.

I’ve changed the layout of the written text to make it easier to follow.

I’ve removed some unnecessary information, like the errata for the book I took the stitch pattern from.

I’ve clarified where to start counting/working in the beginnings of the rows, as I’ve been receiving a lot of emails lately about this. The pattern is correct, I’ve changed the wording to try and make it more clear.

If you think there is a mistake in the pattern, or if you see corrections posted anywhere, please contact me (bettymcknit @ gmail.com). Posting corrections without my authorization is a copyright infringement.

I’ve been inundated with requests for video tutorials (they’re coming) and charts (also coming).

The humble 6-Day Kid Blanket has been crocheted by hundreds of people, and no two of those afghans are alike.

If you see this pattern on Pinterest or elsewhere (thank you all for posting and linking everywhere!) made in different colors, know that those crocheters took this pattern and changed the yarn and used the formula given in the pattern to adjust the number of foundation chain stitches to create a blanket that looks much different than the one shown on the pattern.

But yes, it is the same pattern.

Some of the crocheters who made ‘ghans off of this pattern didn’t change colors on rows 5 and 7 like I did, but instead changed every four (or another number) rows.

The Ravelry link is not broken. The pattern that you download here is the right one. All of the photos on this page (and pinterest and elsewhere) of the 6-Day Kid Blanket were made using the pattern you can download here.

Multiples are given on the pattern for you to make adjustments for gauge, or to make a larger afghan. If you need help understanding how to do this, feel free to email me at bettymcknit @ gmail.com

And of course, you can use whatever colors you like.

And you can change those colors after however many rows you care to. Or even make the whole thing in one color.
