I love love love this blanket. It took me over a year to complete it as I didn’t work on it all the time.
I used an 8 ply acrylic wool. I think it was Panda 50g, I also used way more than what the pattern said. I think I ended up tripling the quantity. What I did was to make a certain amount and weigh them and then work out how much wool I would need and then I went back and got more.
I used a 4.5mm hook.
A = 12 rows (30cm), make 4
B = 8 rows (20cm), make 14
C = 6 rows (15cm), make 24
D = 4 rows (10cm), make 53
E = 2 rows (5cm), make 104
Using a 4.5mm hook, make 4 ch and join with a sl st to form a ring.
In these instructions tr is the british version, so = a dc in US.
1st round: 3 ch, 2tr in ring, (2ch, 3 tr in ring) 3 times, 2 ch, sl st in 3rd ch at beg.
2nd round: 3 ch, * 1 tr in each tr to 2ch sp, (2tr, 2ch, 2 tr) in 2ch sp, rep from * to end, sl st in 3rd ch at beg.
3rd round: 3ch, * 1 tr in each tr to 2ch sp, (2tr, 2ch, 2tr) in 2 ch sp, rep from * 3 more times, 1 tr in each tr to end of round, sl st in 3rd ch at beg.
Rep 3rd round until square measures the correct number of rows.
Make up: sew squares together using the following diagram.
I finished it off with a row of sc around the whole piece.
