Blanket is made using Tunisian crochet: each row is made up of a forward pass, where loops are picked up and held on the hook, and a return pass (rp), where loops are removed until one loop remains on hook. RS is facing throughout; do not turn after each row. Colour changes are made using intarsia technique, using a new ball of yarn for each block and working with one colour at a time, leaving other colours hanging at back of work until next colour change. Changing colour in middle of forward pass: work until starting point of new colour, insert hook into next st, twist new colour around previous colour, yoh with new colour, and work required number of sts in new colour. Changing colour in middle of rp: cc when one loop of previous colour remains on hook, twist new colour around previous colour, yoh with new colour, and complete rp. Changing colour for new row of blocks: cc at end of rp from last row before the new row of blocks when only two loops remain on hook, pull new colour through last two loops (one loop in new colour on hook), fasten off colours from last row and join new colours in next row. Each block in Colour Chart consists of 26 sts and 26 rows; read chart from right to left for each forward pass. Colour Chart is the same for both colourways.

15 sts and 15 rows to measure 10 x 10cm over Tss using a 5mm Tunisian crochet hook.

Approx. 140 x 174cm (55 x 68½in)
