PATTERN NOTES
UK crochet terminology used throughout.

Blanket is worked back and forth in treble crochet with two large motifs, one narrow motif and thirteen small motifs joined in as you go.

Join sections at end of row by slip stitching last stitch of section just worked to side of previous section. Join at beginning of row by working slip st, ch1, slip st along side of previous section before commencing the row. Joins are worked at a ratio of approximately 2 sts per section row.

Throughout main blanket, when not joining to a section edge, remember to begin row with ch3 (counting as first tr) and work final tr into the top of this chain at end of row.

See diagram for positioning of motifs and sections.
