Size: 60" x 40"  or 72" x 52" Blanket/Afghan 

If you are doing a 40x60 inch blanket you will probably need about 20 skeins, your choice of colors.

Hook I used is size I 5.50 mm

Note: Do not turn work, cut off at end leaving a 3" tail for fringe.

sc=single crochet
dc=double crochet
blp=back loop only
flp=front loop only
st=stitch
ch=chain
sl st=slip stitch
( )=Repeat what is in parentheses

All single crochets are made in back loops of sitches.

All double crochet are made in front loop of sitch in second row from top.

You can make any size you like with this formula: 2 ch needed at beginning 3 ch + 1ch for knot at end, ch in multiples of 20 in middle.

Slip knot at the begining is for fringe knot. Ch1 at end is for knot. Do not work in these knots.

Cast on using single crochet stitch. Please watch video tutorial to learn how to do this.
