JoAnna's Blanket -- 15in Crochet Blanket

Here's another blanket from the 15 inch blanket project :) This one came out a little bigger (more like 16 - 17 inches)

This pattern is sweet for a little girl but I think if you altered the border to just be a DC all the way around it might be nice for a little boy as well :)

Yarn used for blanket in photo:

Sl st into any corner stich, chain 3, 3dc in same stitch, *sk 2, sl st, sk 2 5dc in same stitch, *repeat from * around entire blanket. CORNERS, it's best if lines up for the 5dc in each corner but it might not, you can also put 2dc in 3-4 stitches going  around corner or only sk 1 space before and after sl st, etc.

Finish blanket by weaving in ends

As always here are a few more examples of this pattern :) 

This one I just messed with the row colors some.
I did have to add an extra row to make the colors even.

Danita did this lovely example, uses the same row color changes as listed in the pattern just done with a variegated and two solids.
