Additional Terms:
Working in the 3rd loop of hdc: Look at the top of the stitch, and locate the sideways “V”, bend the stitch to look at the back, and you should see another “V”. You’ll be working into the back loop of that “V”, this is called the 3rd loop.
Seed Stitch: alternate sc and dc stitches across the designated row, then on the next row work a dc stitch in the sc stitch from the previous row, and a sc stitch in the dc stitch from the previous row.
Hdc puff st: YO, pull up a stitch 5 times, pull through 10 loops on hook, YO, pull through final 2 loops.
Cross st: sk st, dc in next st, cross over st just made, dc in skipped st.
Shell: 4 dc in same st

13 sts using the seed stitch pattern in 4”. Each row 2-34 repeat measures approximately 12” tall before blocking.

Toddler Blanket: 40” x 50
Small Throw: 50” x 60”
Large Throw: 60” x 72”

Additional Notes:
-Ch 1 at beginning of row does not count as a stitch.
-Ch-2 and ch-3 at beginning of a new row do count as stitches. You may replace the ch-2 with a hdc, and the ch-3 with a dc if you prefer. Ch-1 to turn if you decide to make that substitution.
-This blanket is worked in 2 separate pieces and then sewed together so that the pattern on both ends of the blanket is the same.
-This blanket will require some blocking to even out the side edges.
