~ a straight simply pretty ~

 
I chained 76 for the baby blankie that I started - it is only 20" wide.  If you want a wider blankie, just add more chains in multiples of 4.

Directions:
Row 1: Ch 76, sc in the 2nd ch from the hook, sc in each ch across.  Ch 1, turn.  (75 sc)

Row 2: Sc in the 1st ch, ch 3, skip next sc, sc in the next sc.  *ch 3, skip next sc, sc in the next sc.  Repeat from * across.  Ch 1, turn.

Row 3: Sl st into the ch-3 loop, (ch 3, 2 dc) in the same ch-3 loop.  *ch 1, skip next ch-3 loop, 3 dc in the next ch-3 loop.  Repeat from * across.  Ch 1, turn.

Row 4: Sc in the 1st dc, sc in each dc and ch-1 space across, sc in top of last ch 3.  Ch 1, turn.

Repeat Rows 2 - 4 consecutively until you get to the length you prefer.

  7. How do you like working with that yarn Debi? I love it. I used it for a couple of light weight shawls. It would be perfect for the baby blankets too if you wanted to go outside of the box and not use the usual pastel colors.
