Colors

Stitches

SINGLE CROCHET (SC): Insert your hook, yarn over (YO), pull up a loop, YO, pull through two loops on hook. 

COUNTERPANE STITCH (Also known as elongated SC): Insert your hook and pull up a loop. Yarn over once, and pull through only the first loop on your hook. Yarn over again, and pull through all remaining loops. 

Pattern

Chain 130 in Buff. (If you’d like to make your blanket bigger or smaller, chain any number.)

ROW 1: Insert your hook into the 3rd chain and pull up a loop. Yarn over once, and pull through only the first loop on your hook. Yarn over again, and pull through all remaining loops. Chain 2 and turn. 

ROW 2: Repeat row 1 for the rest of the blanket.

To change colors: On your last stitch in the row, insert your hook into the stitch, YO and pull through stitch. There should be two loops on your hook. This is where you lay the new color over your hook and pull through both loops to finish the stitch with your new color. Make sure to leave at least a 6 to 9-inch tail when you cut the previous color.

Here’s how I did my color changes: 24 rows of Ivory, 2 rows of Buff, 2 rows of Ivory, 2 rows of Buff, 2 rows of Ivory, 2 rows of Buff, 2 rows of Ivory, 2 rows of Buff, 38 rows of Ivory, 49 rows of Buff
