This gorgeous blanket design came out of a beautiful sunset I saw on a trip to the ocean. I loved the combination of pinks, corals, blues, and violets that seemed to stain the sky like a watercolor painting. The crochet block that makes up this blanket uses post stitch lines that remind me of the muntins of a windowpane, suggesting a view. The corner eyelets offer a beautiful graphic contrast for the eye to dance across the dapples of color. The pattern is offered in three sizes to create a gorgeous wall hanging, a baby blanket, or a full-size throw blanket.

NOTES
• This pattern uses US crochet terminology.
• This design offers a crochet block motif using post stitches and “wide” double crochet (double crochet worked between stitches instead of into the tops of stitches.
• Blocks are worked in the round with Right Side facing.
• The pattern offers instructions for a wall hanging, and baby sized, and throw blankets, but this block can be used for table runners, garments, or any sized blanket if you sew your squares into a different shape.

SPECIAL ABBREVIATIONS
Front post double crochet (fpdc): Yarn over, insert hook front-to-back through your work, so that the post you want to crochet around is in front of your hook; yarn over and pull through…3 loops on hook; yarn over and pull through the first two loops on the hook; yarn over and pull through the remaining two loops on the hook.

Long chain (LC): Instead of using a standard 3-ch turning chain, I use a long chain (LC). When you are ready to begin working a new round, simply pull a long loop up to the approximate height of your next stitch. You do not need to yarn over or pull, it will appear to be a simple loop. Go ahead and work the first stitch of the round as indicated, you will see that the LC tucks in neatly next to the stitch becoming almost invisible.
