PATTERN NOTES
You will not count your turning ch as a stitch.
If you would like to make this blanket into a larger or smaller blanket or maybe even a shawl it will be helpful to know that your foundation chain should be: odd multiples of 13 (such as 13, 39, 65) + 1.

SPECIAL STITCHES

HELPFUL ABBREVIATIONS
Hk – hook
Ch – chain
Yo – yarn over
Lp – loop
St – stitch
Sl st – slip stitch
Dc – double crochet

Row 2 – Ch 2 and turn, dc in first, (sc in next, dc in next) across. (91)
Row 3 – Ch 1 and turn, sc in first, (dc in next, sc in next) across. (91)
Row 4 – Ch 2 and turn, dc in first, (sc in next, dc in next) across. (91)
Row 5 through Row 118 – (Repeat Row 3 then Row 4) 57 times.
Place a stitch marker into the first and last st of row 118. You can remove a stitch marker to work a stitch but make sure to put it right back.
Row 119 – Ch 1, work a sl st in each st across. (91)
Fasten off and weave in all ends.
Row 119 will serve as a pretty edge for your bunting border. The side of the blanket where you can see the front and back lps of your sl sts is the right side of your blanket.

Spin your blanket around so that you are facing the opposite end your blanket (making sure that you are still facing the right side). You will now start working on the opposite side of your foundation chain.

Foundation Row – Stitch mark the first and last ch of your foundation ch. Insert hk into the first ch of your foundation ch, pull up a lp of MC, Ch 1, work a sl st into the SAME st and in each st across. (91)
Fasten off and weave in ends.

You can see in this picture that I’ve inserted my hk into the front and back lps of my first foundation ch.

IMG_8265

you can see in this pic that I’ve worked my first several sl sts.

IMG_8270

This is just a quick mini blanket that I worked up. My sl st rows on each end (top and bottom) are both facing the right side and the stitch markers are placed.

The foundation Row will serve as a pretty edge for your bunting border.

WORKING THE BUNTING:
You will work your bunting into the front and back loops of your foundation ch (not the foundation Row) and into the front and back lps of Row 118 (not Row 119).
You placed the stitch markers into the first and last sts of the foundation ch and Row 118 to help you find the loops you should be working your bunting into. You will be leaving the sl st rows unworked. You can see the sl st rows unworked in the two pictures below.

      I just found your website. Looks like one I’ll be coming back to. In your pattern you list HK as an abbreviation for a stitch. I’ve not seen this before. Wondering what it is. Thanks for you help.
