  • Blanket is worked in alternating rows of V st and Bobble st (see Special Stitches)
  • Blanket is worked from the bottom up, beginning and ending with a V stitch row
  • Colour changes are done at the end of every row. My method for changing colour is to join the new colour on the last step of the last stitch of the row. (More detailed instructions are written in the pattern)
  • Beginning ch 2 at the start of the V st row counts as the first stitch
  • Beginning ch 3 at the start of the Bobble st row counts as the first stitch
  • You can use any weight yarn and hook size with this pattern; sizes will vary depending on yarn weight and hook size used
  • To make a larger or smaller blanket, adjust your starting chain to any multiple of 2 + 1. (If you are making a larger blanket you will need more yarn than listed above)
  • If at all possible, I recommend weaving in ends as you go!

Special Stitches
