Pattern Notes

The blanket is worked through the back loop at all times.

This pattern calls for switching colors. When you are ready to change colors simply continue to single crochet but before you yarn over for the last time, stop using the current color you are working with and drop it, pick up your new color and complete the stitch.

When changing color, work over yarn ends. This will result in less weaving at the end.

To adjust the size of your blanket, work foundation chain over a multiple of 17 sts + 15.
