A grey, B llipstick red 12 rows
A grey, B emperor purple12 rows
A grey, B royal blue 12 rows


Had to frog pattern 3, 8rows in total when I discovered the blanket was getting wider despite correct hook and stitchcount
Probably it is because of loose tension
I will try again and otherwise change to hook 4,5 mm to see if it is better
I used stylecraft special dk in grey wnd last bit of blue left over from temp blanket, just enough for 3 repeats

Finished pattern 3
Used 3 colors for first 2 repeats
4A,4B grey and lapis
4A, 4B grey and aster
4A, 4B grey and grassgreen
Then 6A, 6B, grey and kelly green


Picked it up again after a break to work on other projects. Luckily i wrote down the hook used here. Continued in pattern 4, at 3 repeat in the bright light green, r 4


Just past midnight, ended in r11 of last repeat for pattern 4. Managed to do 7 rows in an evening.
It looks like my tension is loose compared to earlier patterns. But this might be an illusion because of the colors. I used my knitpro waves 5 mm hook throughout.

Worked part 5 in blue colors in two evenings
Aster for first 12 rows
Turquoise for second pattern
Will use teal for 3d pattern

Update. Had to rip and redo because of other tension and redid
First pattern aster,
2nd repeat teal
3d repeat royal blue

Picked it up on 29May again
