I used a single raised rib crochet pattern to create this blanket. I made 4 columns then sewed them side-by-side. Each rectangle is 9 inches by 7 inches and there are 5 in each coumn. The finished size is 40 x 35 inches. I used Caron 1 pd yarn. It's very soft. I used Lilac & Cream. I did a 2 row border after everything was competed and sewn togethor. I used a K hook and only had to chain 25. Your basically alternating 1 row of Half Double Crochets and 1 row of Front Post Stitches.
The instructional pdf (link above) will give you everything you need to know to make this blanket.
TO Sew the columns togethor I put them wrong side up, facing you. This way the sewing is invisible. I've been asked what stitch I use to sew them. I'm not sure if it even has a name. Again, I do it this way so it's not seen.
This is the best way to describe it. Just think of the red line as where your 2 columns are togethor that your sewing.
It's great for a baby blanket or just a lap afghan for your home.
If you have any questions, please let me know!
