See for inspiration…
This pattern is for a baby blanket aprox. size 60*80 cm (23.6 x 31.5 in) depending on the yarn, hook size and gauge. I have used a 4 mm hook (US G) with yarn from Sandnes Garn «lanett». This yarn is Light Fingering / 3 ply yarn. I probably crochet a little firmly.
Choose your favorite colors by an uneven number, 3, 5 etc. If you choose an even number there will be an obvious pattern in the colors. Change colors at the end of every row.
Chain 155 + 1 extra at the end (the stitch which the hook is in). You can easily adjust the blanket size by increasing or decreasing the number of starting chain stitches. If you do so, it’s important that you chain a number that is a multiple of 14 plus 2 for the pattern to work.
Row 1: single crochet in the second chain from the hook and in each chain to the end, turn (155 stitches)
Row 2: chain 2 (does not counts as first double crochet), 4 double crochet in the first stitch. * skip 3 stitches, single crochet in the next 7 stitches, skip 3 stitches **, 7 double crochet in the next stitch *
Repeat from * to * ending the last repeat at **, 4 double crochet in the last stitch, turn
Row 3: single crochet in every stitch leaving chain 2 from previous row unworked, turn
Row 4: chain 1, 1 single crochet in the next 4 stitches, * skip the next 3 stitches, 7 double crochet in the next stitch, skip the next 3 stitches **, 1 single crochet in the next 7 stitches *
Repeat from * to * ending the last repeat at **, 1 single crochet in the last 4 stitches, turn
Repeat row 1-4 until desired length. As you go along you will soon see the pattern and will not need to count anymore. End after a first or third row.
Edge: Slip stitch around the blanket. Turn. Using the same color as the last round, place 1 single crochet in each stitch around the sides, and 3 single crochet in each corner. Turn. Using contrasting color, place 1 single crochet in stitch around the sides, and 3 single crochet in each corner.
