I made this blanket for my camper. I normally wouldn't put these colors togethor but I wanted the colors to match the camper.
I used a Single Raised Rib stitch (front post stitch) to make this blanket. I made 6 columns then sewed them side by side. I can't make a blanket in 1 piece. It's just to heavy to keep flipping a blanket every time I'm done with a row. I made it to match the colors of my camper.
Each Rectangle is 8 inches x 13 inches
Finished Size: 32 inches by 65 inches
Hook Size: K
Yarn: Caron 1 pound
Skill Level: Beginner
• Half Double Crochet – Used on every Wrong Side row.
• FPDC(Front post double crochet) – Yarn over (like a double crochet) insert hook around stem of the next stitch 2 rows below it. Only used on the Right Side rows.
GAUGE: 2.75 inches per inch & 1.92 Rows per inch
Other Abbreviations: * - * Repeat the instructions between them
Foundation Chain: 22
(RS) Row 1: Go into the 3rd chain from the hook and do 1hdc, do 1 hdc in each stitch across the row (20 hdc’s)
(WS) Row 2 : chain 2, turn. Do 1 hdc in each stitch across the row (20 hdc’s)
Row 3: chain 2, turn. Do 1 hdc in each of the next 2 stitches *Do 1 FPDC around the next stitch 2 rows below, Do 1 hdc in each of the next 2 stitches* repeat (6 raised ribs)
Row 4: chain 2, turn. Do 1 hdc in each stitch across the row.
Repeat rows 3 and 4 for the entire blanket
I always sew on the wrong side of the blanket. That means wrong side facing you.
