To read about the Jake’s Blankie CAL (Crochet ALong) and to find the links to each week’s post, click here. The intro post will also give you all the yarn info for the blanket, and other links that may help. I have created an event in my Facebook page to share photos and ask questions. You can find the event here.
Onto rounds 3 & 4 of the border! Round 3 uses a crossed double crochet stitch. You can find a tutorial for that stitch here.
Border Round 3:
Switch to color C, slip st into ch-2 corner space, ch 5 (counts as first dc and ch 2), 2 dc in same ch-2 corner space, [(skip 1, dc in next st, dc in skipped st working behind the previous st) to corner space, (2 dc, ch 2, 2dc) in next ch-2 corner space] 3 times (skip 1, dc in next st, dc in skipped st working behind the previous st) to corner space, dc in next ch-2 corner space, slip st to 3rd ch of beginning ch 5. (100 sts on each short side, 144 sts on each long side, ch-2 corners)
Switch to color A, Slip st into ch-2 corner space, ch 3, sc in ch-2 corner space, [sc in each st to corner, (sc, ch 2, sc) in next ch-2 corner space], 3 times, sc in each st to corner, sc in next ch-2 corner space, slip st to first ch of beginning ch 3. (102 sts on each short side, 146 sts on each long side, ch-2 corners)
Here’s another color option! (these are packs of 3, so there will be enough of each color to make the whole blanket!)
