Basket Weave Blanket

20171202-Crochet Blanket 1

I made this couch/nap blanket, for my in-laws, for Xmess. They were super excited to receive it and I’ve heard several times since that they love it. My intend with this and ones I make a couple years ago is for it to be much longer than your normal “lap blanket”. You can never stretch out on the couch and have a nap under those because they won’t cover you from feet to chin. This one will.

Yarn: Barcelona (from Michael’s), color: Onyx
Hook: M/9mm

Pattern:

Start: Ch 96
R1: sk 3, dc in each ch to end (94)
R2: hdc, [(fpdc)x4, (bpdc)x4] across, hdc in last st (94)
That’s most of it. Now you want to be doing the same for 3 rows at a time and then switch. Or it might be more accurate to say you work a row where you switch direction and then 2 that you don’t. Repeat until you reach desired length.

Mine had 23 sections across, and at the end of 8 skeins of yarn it was 48 sections tall. Final measurements were: 40.5″ wide, by 84″ long.
