This is a very simple blanket to stitch because it's primarily single crochet, but I want to take a couple minutes and go over how to easily do the color work so that you can try this blanket without having to worry about techniques that you don't know to Make it we're going to need a crochet hook and we're going to use Caron simply soft in natural and charcoal Heather? Now, on the pattern, we have the written instructions on the front page, but on the second page we have this chart now, if you've never worked with charted stitches before I'm going to show you the easiest way to do it.
This has the S on the end and the hashtag at the beginning. This way, I can show you a couple of rows without taking all day, so I have followed the directions on my pattern or in this case for my little swatch, and I have done the bottom of the blanket in the charcoal Heather now looking at my chart, This is my first row, so I'm going to go in this direction, I'm going to read from this side to this side and I'm going to need eight of the grey stitches, seven off white, nine gray, three off white, four gray, three off white five grave! Remember your chart will be much bigger on just using the small one in the video, so I'm going to go ahead and stitch now to get my second color started. All I'm going to do is take a fold of the new color and leave that six to eight inch tail hanging.
I'm going to weave that in later there's no point in getting crazy about it right now. If I leave a long enough tail to weave in that's the easiest, so I said I wanted eight gray, so I made one two three, four, five, six seven and on my last stitch I began the single crochet in gray, but the last yarn over and pull It through I'm going to do in the new color so every time I change colors on this project every single time, the last yarn over of the stitch in the old color that last yarn over is going to be made in the new color.
Now this stitch is going to look a little loosely-goosed just because I have that tail hanging I'll, tighten it up when I weave it in later now, because I'm going back and forth in rows, I need the color to travel with me so for the next seven Stitches, I'm going to use off-white and I don't need the gray, but when I need the gray it's going to be over here, so it has to get there. So I'm going to stitch right over it. So using the off-white and stitching over the gray - and I want to tighten that last stitch up just a little bit - I'm going to make seven of the off-white stitches, but I'm going to work right on top of the gray yarn.
