Difficulty:
Easy

Materials needed:
6 mm (J) hook, or hook needed to obtain gauge
2400 yards of Red Heart Super Saver or Red Heart With Love in “Aran” for a 60” x 60” throw.
Yarn needle
Scissors
Stitch markers

Stitches used: 
ch = chain
sl st = slip stitch
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double crochet
st/sts = stitch/stitches
sp/sps = space/spaces
prev = previous

Additional Stitches:
Working in the 3rd Loop of hdc – Instructions: 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” made by the “yarn over”. You’ll be working into the back loop of that “V”. This is called the 3rd loop. When you are working in rows, this 3rd loop will be facing you after you turn!

Measurements:
See notes in pattern for information on crocheting 6 different blanket sizes.

Gauge:
13 hdc stitches in 4”

Additional Notes:
-You can adjust the size of your blanket by making the starting chain number divisible by 3 + 1 (the first two chains of the row count as a stitch).
-Ch 2, and ch 3 do count as first stitch of row unless otherwise indicated.
IMPORTANT Mark the ch-2 and ch-3 with stitch markers so you don’t forget to work the final stitch of the next row into them. Your blanket will start to skew diagonally if you do not do this.
