bernat® blanket™ greek key mosaic crochet blanket

Prices may vary instore and online.
Step 1

MEASUREMENTS: Approx 46" x 60” [117 x 152.5 cm]

GAUGE: 6½ sc and 7 rows = 4" [10 cm] with U.S. M/13 (9 mm) hook

NOTES:

  • To change color, work to last loop on hook of previous color. Yoh with new color, draw through loop, tighten previous color and proceed with new color.
  • Carry color when not in use loosely up side of work.
  • Each skipped sc has ch-2 worked above it for 2 rows. This establishes the ‘gap’ where Mosaic Dc will later be worked
  • Mosaic Dc always replaces sc directly behind it on working row
  • WS of your work maintains alternating 2-row striped pattern because you are working in front of chain spaces each time you work Mosaic Dc - you are never working around chain-spaces. The chain-spaces sit behind Mosaic Dc.
  • Blanket worked over foundation ch multiple of 4 ch
STITCH EXPLANATION(S):
  • Mosaic Dc (Mosaic Double Crochet): Working in front of chain spaces, work 1 dc in skipped sc 2 rows below
