~ wiggles preemie baby blankie ~

Materials:
- 4-ply worsted weight acrylic (I used Herrschners Worsted 8)
   - 8 oz. off-white for blanket
   - various colors for wiggles
- I hook

Size:  21" x 24"

Notes: 
- I crochet tight so you may need to adjust the size of your hook
- you can make this blanket any size you would like - just make sure to chain an odd number of chains

Directions:
Row 1:  With off-white ch 95, dc in 4th chain from hook.  Dc in each ch across.  Turn.  (93 dc)

Rows 2 - 3:  Ch 3, dc in each dc across, dc in top of beginning ch 3.  Turn.

Row 4:  Ch 4, skip next dc, dc in next dc.  *ch 1, skip next dc, dc in next dc.  Repeat from * across.  Turn.

Row 5:  Ch 3, dc in each dc and ch 1 space across.  Dc in 3rd ch of beginning ch 4.  Turn.

Rows 6 - 7:  Ch 3, dc in each dc across, dc in top of beginning ch 3.  Turn.

Rows 8 - 39:  Repeat Rows 4 - 7.  At end of Row 39, end off.

- for wiggles (on dc, ch 1 rows):

Join color with a sl st around 1st st, 3 dc around same st.  *Turn, 4 dc around next st.  Repeat from * across.  End off.


- for edging:

Join off-white with a sc in any corner, (ch 2, sc) in same corner. Sc evenly around with (sc, ch 2, sc) in each corner stitch, and a ch 3 to skip a wiggles row.

  29. Hi there! Just had a question for row 4. I dc in the last dc and I'm left with the chain space from the previous row. Does this count as a stitch or will the rows even out? Also, in the chain, skipping 4 Ch will not result in 93 dc. I had to start in the 2nd Ch. :) I love this pattern & have a person who wants to give it as a gift!

    1. Hi Jess. You have to count the 1st 3 chains as a dc. I re-worked the starting chain this morning - I chained 95, worked a dc in the 4th ch from the hook, and then worked a dc in each of the remaining chs. I ended up with 93 dc's. (92 dc plus the beginning ch 3)

      For Row 4 - the chain 4 is counted as a dc and 1 ch. You will start by chaining 4, skip the next dc, and then dc in the next dc.

  31. I guess I'm just dumb, but after trying to do the wiggler stitch for an hour, I give up.
