Using gray yarn, create a foundation Chain 99.. (To adjust the size of your blanket, make sure the chain is a multiple of 3.)

Row 1: In the second chain from the hook, make a half double crochet (HDC) and a double crochet (DC). Skip the next two chains, then in the following chain, work a single crochet (SC), HDC, and DC. Skip two chains again and repeat the sequence “SC, HDC, DC” in the next chain space. Continue this pattern across until you reach the end, leaving one chain. Work 1 SC in the last chain and then turn.

Row 2: Chain one (this serves as your first SC), then make an HDC and DC into the top of the SC from the previous row. Skip over the DC and HDC, then in the next SC, perform “SC, HDC, DC.” Always look for the SC to do your “SC, HDC, DC” into. Repeat this pattern across the row, ending the last stitch with a single crochet. Chain one and turn to begin the next row.

REPEAT ROW 2 throughout the rest of the blanket.


Here’s an example of how color changes can be done: Begin with 8 rows of Greyhound, followed by 4 rows of White, 2 rows of Peony, 2 rows of White, 4 rows of Greyhound, 2 rows of White, 4 rows of Peony, 4 rows of White, 4 rows of Greyhound, 2 rows of White, 2 rows of Peony, 4 rows of White, 4 rows of Greyhound, 4 rows of White, 4 rows of Peony, 2 rows of White, 4 rows of Greyhound, 2 rows of White, 2 rows of Peony, 4 rows of White, and finally, 8 rows of Greyhound.

When switching colors in your crochet project, make sure to bring in the new color on the final single crochet (SC) of the row. Introduce the new color just before completing the stitch, while you still have two loops on your crochet hook. After that, trim the old color, leaving a tail of about six inches. You can use a tapestry needle to weave this tail into the blanket later on.
