Natalie’s Kaleidoscope Blanket Preamble

NOTES & USEFUL TIPS

  • My pattern uses US terminology.
  • Always read the pattern before you start, to familiarise yourself with it.
  • Colours are for reference only and will vary depending on the light settings of your monitor/device.
  • I used blended yarn (50% cotton and 50% bamboo) to design this blanket. You can make the blanket in any yarn, just remember to use the correct hook size for the yarn you have chosen.
  • If you are working in thicker or thinner yarn your blanket size may vary.
  • My starting chain for a double crochet is 2. This is a personal preference, but you can use chain 3, it is your choice.
  • I start my new rows with a standing stitch; if you are not comfortable with making one, then you can start with a slip knot and the required number of chains (i.e., chain three for a double crochet stitch, chain two for a half double crochet stitch, and chain one for a single crochet stitch).
  • Stitches and chains are noted separately for the corners to the stitches per side.
  • Rounds with multiple stitches indicate the total number of stitches, but this excludes corner stitches (noted separately) and chain spaces.
  • *.*/**.** indicates a repeat of a combination of stitches by the given number of times.
  • [.] indicates a combination of stitches made into one stitch or space between stitches.
  • Stitch counts are at the end of each round/row, in parentheses, with a total stitch count at the end.
  • If you are working with a yarn cake or one colour, do not fasten off your yarn at the end of each round, just slip stitch to the indicated stitch or corner space and continue. In certain rounds, at the beginning of the pattern, you may need to cut and re-join.
  • I use the needle join technique to finish off each round. If you would like to use this technique, refer to the explanation in the abbreviations.
  • Tension and hook size may influence the overall size.
  • And lastly, COUNT your stitches and have loads of FUN.
