Sweet lacy Hearts Blanket

A soft cuddly baby blanket adorned with sweet lacy hearts. 

500g Dk baby yarn 
Hook 4.50 mm
Tension 11 rows and 11 sts to a 4 inch square
Finished measurements 100cms x 83cms
This Blanket can be made to any measurements, using yarn and hook size of your choice.

sl st - slip stitch
sl st - slip stitch
sc - single crochet
dc - double crochet
hdc - half double crochet
htr - half treble crochet
dc- double crochet
tr - treble crochet
tr - triple crochet
dtr or dbl tr - double treble
yrh - yarn round hook

Group = work one half treble and one treble in each chain like this...(yrh, insert hook into next st, pull up loop, yrh, pull through first 2 loops, yrh, insert hook into same ch, yrh, pull loop through 1 loop,  yrh, pull through all 4 loops left on hook) 

In English Terms.

Chain 118 very loosely,

1st row-1htr in 4th ch from hook, then 1 group in each ch to end 1htr in last ch.

2nd row - 3ch, 1htr in first group, then 1 group in each group ending in 1htr in last st.
Repeat last row until work measures 82 cm or desired length.

1st row - Dc evenly around blanket edges working 3dc in each corner.

 2nd row-  (1 dc, 3ch, 1tr) in 1st dc, miss 2 dc, repeat all around blanket.

Make four Lacy hearts and sew one in each corner.

I do hope that you will try this, it's a lovely rhythmic stitch that doesn't need too much thought, it grows very quickly as your hook just glides along almost by itself and before you know it, a new beautiful baby blanket is born. :)                                 

Please let me me know if you have any problems with this pattern and I will try to help and I would love to see yours if you decide to make one.

A perfect stash-buster project!

Finished weight 500 grams
