Exchanging knit to crochet


Shirley's Blanket picture coming.

This was asked for many, many times. It was the baby blanket I made and talked about in one of my newsletter for my daughter's friend. I made it in 2 whites. One solid, the other had a silve thread running through it. I changed the whites every 3 rows.

Here then is the pattern

This is pretty easy. No that's not right. It's
VERY easy. Only 2 rows make the pattern.

I used sport or baby weight. Size h hook.

Chain  About 150.

Row 1: work 3 dc's in the 4th ch from hook. * skip 1 chain., sc in the next, ( 3 dc in the next chain = shell) * rep from * across Row. End with 1 sc in
last stitch. ch 3, turn.

Note: If you do not come out doing a (single crochet) sc. Just stop when you do the
closest sc at the end. Going around the afghans edge once when finished will hind an extra stitch or two.

Row 2: 3 dc in 1st st, * 1 sc in middle stitch of shell, 1 shell of 3 dc in sc stitch, * rep across Row. End with 1 sc. Ch 3, Turn.

Row 3: Repeat Row 2 for about 80 to 100 rows. Or the length you'd like it.

Single crochet around edge once. Remember to make 3 stitch in corner. Repeat pattern around at least once.
