~ 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.

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.

  4. ooh, I made a blanket from the simply pretty square and loved how it turned out. I'll definitely add this to the list of projects to do. Thanks for sharing.

  5. The yarn gives your stitches something extra, good choice! And thanks for sharing your ideas:)

  6. 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.
