bernat® blanket™ greek key mosaic crochet blanket

This classic Greek, key meander motif takes its name from the river Meander. It symbolizes the bonds of friendship, love and devotion, so it is the perfect gift throw to crochet for weddings and special people in your life.
Step 1

MEASUREMENTS: Approx 46" x 60” [117 x 152.5 cm]

GAUGE: 6½ sc and 7 rows = 4" [10 cm] with U.S. M/13 (9 mm) hook

NOTES:

  • To change color, work to last loop on hook of previous color. Yoh with new color, draw through loop, tighten previous color and proceed with new color.
  • Carry color when not in use loosely up side of work.
  • Each skipped sc has ch-2 worked above it for 2 rows. This establishes the ‘gap’ where Mosaic Dc will later be worked
  • Mosaic Dc always replaces sc directly behind it on working row
  • WS of your work maintains alternating 2-row striped pattern because you are working in front of chain spaces each time you work Mosaic Dc - you are never working around chain-spaces. The chain-spaces sit behind Mosaic Dc.
  • Blanket worked over foundation ch multiple of 4 ch
STITCH EXPLANATION(S):
  • Mosaic Dc (Mosaic Double Crochet): Working in front of chain spaces, work 1 dc in skipped sc 2 rows below
