The Adam Baby Blanket

By Janet Carrillo "damn it Janet, let's crochet!"
Can't wait to curl up with my baby with this warm snuggly blanket.💓

size: 29"  x  35.5" but can vary based on yarn and hook size

*Crochet hook size: 6.0mm (J)
*Worsted Weight Yarn: Navy Blue (320yds), Gray (320yds) & Ivory (320yds) or colors of choice
*Fleece Fabric (amount & color depending on your blanket size)
*Tapestry Needle

PATTERN NOTES - must-read...
 Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round/row indicate the total number of stitches.
 The chains in the beginning DO count as a stitch.
 If you want to make the blanket bigger, you chain multiples of 4.
 Make the color changes in whichever row you like. I did mine after every 2nd row. Or you can make it all in one color.

  Row 1: ch100, 2dc in 4th ch from hook, *ch1, sk 3 chs, 3dc in next ch,* repeat from * to * 23 more times, ch4, turn (74 dc's & 24 ch1 spaces)
  Row 2: *3dc in next ch1 sp, ch1,* repeat from * to * 23 more times, dc into 3rd ch, ch3, turn (73 dc's & 25 ch1 space)
  Row 3: 2dc in next ch1 sp, *ch1, 3dc in next ch1 sp,* repeat from * to * 23 more times, 3dc in last ch1 sp, ch4, turn (74 dc's & 24 ch1 spaces)
  Row 4-68: repeat rows 2 and 3 or until you reach desired length.

  On the last row, don’t finish off the navy blue yarn (or the color you use). If you haven’t already, weave in all the ends. Once that has been done, let’s go back to crocheting where we left at. Be sure to mark where you start off with a stitch marker.
  I made a simple border using 2 rows of single crochets (first navy blue, then gray) and finishing with a picot edging in ivory. In each corner do 2sc.
  The picot edging consists of *3sc, ch3, sl st to 1st ch* repeat from * to * all the way around. Try your best to land a picot stitch in each corner.
F/O, secure and weave in all the ends.

  All that's left to do is to sew a nice warm fleece fabric on the back. Now, it’s ready to keep your little one nice and warm.

ch/s: chain/s || f/o: finish off || dc: double crochet || sc: single crochet || sk: skip || sl st: slip stitch || sp: space
