Happy Go Lucky Striped Blanket Throw

I have revised this old pattern and renamed it to reflect how I feel about it.

I normally don’t put the Instructions to any of my patterns into this WordPress blog. But today I’m going to try, because some of you don’t have a PDF app on your phone. Altho it is free to use the basic Adobe app on your phone.

PATTERN…as such…

Scroll to the bottom for a free PDF.

********** SEGMENT 1 **********

  1. Please read and know that these patterns are not calculated to end the row evenly.

2. Add or delete stitches as needed to correct the row stitch count.

3. I use original links to the patterns I have used in this blanket. I have inserted them for your convenience and to give the designer the credit for the wonderful inspiration they have given me.


RohrKnits How-To: Twisted fringe Twisted fringe each side of rows. (I left 12″. But 6-8″ looks good too)

Hook size: G or H. But choose any you are comfortable with.

Row 1. 200 Foundation SC (my blanket drew up quite a bit. 200 chains would be appropriate for a twin bed or large couch throw.) I prefer mine to be a bit larger. So I have done 248 FSC. Foundation Single Crochet link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fG-LiTY_khs
