STITCHES & ABBREVIATIONS
Bobble = (yo, insert hook, yo, draw up a loop, yo, pull through 2 loops on hook) x4, yo, pull through all 9 loops on hook.
CH = Chain
DC = Double crochet
FDC = Foundation Double Crochet
NOTE: the bobble is worked on the wrong side of the blanket, so when you complete it the smooth side of the blanket should be facing you. This helps make the bobbles tight enough that there isn’t a huge gap between stitches.
FDC 99, or any multiple of 8+3
Row 2 (WS): Ch 2, dc, (bobble, dc 3) repeat to last 2 sts, bobble, dc. Turn.
Rows 3-5: Ch 2, dc in each st across (98 dc). Turn.
Row 6: Ch 2, dc 3, (bobble, dc 3) to end of row. Turn.
Rows 7-9: Ch 2, dc in each st across (98 dc). Turn.
Repeat Rows 2-9 an additional 8 times (73 rows total) or until your blanket is as tall as you want it.
If you want to work a border, I suggest working a round or two of DC around the edge of the blanket, working 3 dc in each corner. The sample blanket does not have a border on it, as the velvet yarn creates a very finished look.
